Our dinner meal was quite good, but the service was too slow, considering that the restaurant wasn't very crowded. Also, we wish you would bring back the Ahi Tuna Salad on the dinner menu, as it's one of my husband's top favorites.

Great food with view of the lake on the waterfront. Large windows provide ample views. Nice place for quiet breakfast or lunch with friends or business associates.

We were there for our Anniversary and had a good time while there.

We do need to mention however the food was far too salty and was not able to finish our dinners because of that.

We recommend your Chief sample his dishes before sending them out to us customers.

Thanks for asking.

Was very disappointed. Had been to Hayden's a few years ago and enjoyed it very much at that time. This time was a very different story. Service was very slow, drinks took 10-15 minutes to come, appetizers took at least 20 minutes to come, dinner came right on top of the appetizers and was cold by the time we could start to eat it. The pork osso bucco and the beef short ribs were both very dry and not especially tasty. A very disappointing evening, especially being our 59th wedding anniversary dinner.

Our waiter was excellent! The bar staff was extremely attentive and made it easy to enjoy a drink and appetizers at the bar, then transfer our ticket to our outdoor table for a leisurely dinner later.

Whenever I want to take friends out to a special meal, Hayden's is my Go-To restaurant. They always have outstanding food and service and in the warmer months the patio dining is superb! I highly recommend this restaurant!

So so good. I haven’t been since they released their new menu. Everything was delicious. The restaurant was having a special event, and yet made time and space for my family to celebrate my mom’s birthday. They went above and beyond to make it special!

I have always enjoyed this place based on the good food and nice setting on the lake; however, this is the second time that there have been issues with service. I do not know why, but there doesn't seem to be enough staff. This particular time we did not ever get served. We helped ourselves to the buffet and spoke with the front desk on our way out, who graciously comped us our breakfast; however, we would have preferred to be served and to be able to order a morning libation. Hope this issue gets remedied, as this is a nice place.

I was there for a date and we waited nearly 30 minutes before somebody waited on us. And then finally one of the bus boys got us water and then we didn't see anybody for the another 10 minutes.. So very poor service

The outstanding rating for your waiter, a young man from the Ukraine. He was delightful. He survived all our teasing and crazy requests. Several of us came back after lunch for coffee and dessert outside and fortunately he was our wait person again!! He is an asset. Unfortunately none of us felt the limited food offerings or actual dishes were anything special or different......but, on the plus side, all six of us felt your waiter was indeed unusually excellent!

Our server was fantastic and is the only reason service was rated a 4. it was VERY slow and the bartender didnt know how to make several drinks and the same drink would come in different glasses, significantly larger or smaller at various times. the hostess was also very slow at refilling waters and clearing plates. the food, however, was fantastic and worth the wait. overall it was a great experience and I would recommend it

The service was about as bad as I’ve ever had. First we asked to be seated in a specific servers section. The host made s big deal like it was a big inconvenience and then sat us in someone else’s section anyway. The waitress pretty much ignored us for the first 20 minutes. Finally took our order then brought our food 20 minutes later. Neither of our steaks were done as asked but no one ever came to see how hey were. After we got our food we didn’t see the waitress again until she came to ask if she could clear my plate when I was clearly not done. Then she finally came again with the check nearly 20 minutes after we were actually finished.

The buffet was outstanding. A good variety of food and all of the hot dishes were hot. Great selection of sliced fruit and breads. Towards the end, they were running short of some items.

My husband and I had our anniversary dinner there. The food was great, a slight mishap on the vegetables but nothing to be upset about. Linda was our server. She was very sweet and gave as great information on the menu and specials, and she provided s with extraordinarily service. We will definitely eat there again.

I've been to Haydens many times--I often meet clients there for lunch and most recently I went there for dinner. Both lunch and dinner menus are excellent. Their chowder is probably the best chowder I've ever had. I had a fantastic salad. My husband had Oso
Bucco and our friends had meatloaf. I've often order Salmon and that too is excellent. During nice weather it's so nice to sit outside under sun umbrellas and watch the ducks on the lake. Good wine selection too.

We had a great birthday dinner for my sister who was visiting from out of town. We had a great table outside overlooking the lake and our waiter was fantastic, really adding to the occasion. This is one of my favorite restaurants! Thank you for the free birthday dessert too!

It's been about 5 years since I last dined at Hayden's and I would have given it a 4 Star review back then....but it is a strong 5 star now.

5 of us and the seating & service was great. Food arrived in a timely fashion and yet I never felt rushed. And the food was way above expectation. A little pricey but very much worth it for how good the experience was.

Highly recommend and personally, we will be returning soon.

I’m pretty lenient and friendly when it comes to busy dining and any issues, but our waitress was not friendly, and when I informed her that my drink had 2 dead flies in it she just said okay, well that’s not our fault. She still took it back but her response was pretty unprofessional. The food tasted okay, and then everyone from our party had terrible stomach pains afterwards.

The menu needs updating. Has been the same forever. Location is good and eating by the lakeside is nice when weather is good. Food is so-so. Some items are good and others seem mediocre. Ceasar salad as an entree was really startling. Place a few leaves of Romaine on a plate (un-chopped), pile on a few pieces of chicken and some croutons and there you are. Was less than half a head of lettuce. Really??? Music was very loud and we finally asked to have it turned down so we could hear each other. yikes.

Great views and servers. I was asked to wait ten minutes even though we had reservations and there were plenty of tables available. There were several kids for Prom dinner. So it was busy. But our food game at a very reasonable time.

I took my wife and son for mothers day. It was the buffet. This made for a great opportunity for the three of us to try out different menu items. The outdoor dining area aside the commons lake was magnificent. The evening was topped with a wonderful sunset walk around the small lake after dinner.
