My husband and I celebrated the occasion of his retirement at HK. The setting was nice and the staff's service was EXCELLENT! Our only comment of displeasure was the music (saxophone playing) was way to loud which caused cliental to attempt to speak over it causing a unpleasant loud rumble of voices. We were not unhappy with the music but just the volume of it. Parking situation was not favorable either.

Ambiance was great, loud LOUD saxophone player was not great. It was hard to converse because he was so loud. Food was okay and pricey for just being okay. Desserts were AMAZING. Staff were wonderful, friendly and fast.

Food was very average. Not the quality expected. The chicken thata topped a pasta dish was dry and had no flavor. Prime rib was barely warm when served

Third time there in the last couple of weeks. The previous visits were all great. This time the food failed. The prime rib was nearly inedible. The Mayfair salad dressing drenched the salad and was way over the top with to much anchovy. Server did not inquire about the food bot being eaten. Lesson learned!

I understand that there is no mask mandate in the county that this restaurant is in, but it was extremely disconcerting to have the servers handling my food (and everyone else that works there) without masks. We were there for a gymnastics meet which was very well done and felt completely comfortable with all of the safety precautions but I did not feel that was at dinner.

Service was super slow. My husband ordered a second drink which he never received. Food was ok but not great for the cost. I probably wouldn’t eat here again.

The staff didn’t wear masks but were very kind and good at their jobs. It was a great atmosphere other than the no masks. I recommend if you aren’t afraid to catch COVID. Food was good and staff were very good.

The service was wonderful. The food was very good...the Cesar had a little too much parm on it. The pizza was very good and cheesy. My daughter loved the seafood rav. and the shrimp pasta entrée. We are so glad we ate there during our stay. The prices were not too high. We would absolutely eat there again.

2 hours after we ordered we received food after asking for it repeatedly. We never received our salad course or bread for the table as indicated for our Thanksgiving dinner. Waitress did not come to our table to provide refreshments. We had to walk around to find workers to ask where our food was, to ask for refills, and to ask for them to run our credit card.

We went there for the Thanksgiving Feast. Yes, it was during COVID and indoors. I was not excited about this but actually did it for my dad (he seeming has no problem with this although I'm strict with him otherwise). They did socially distance the tables. In the hotel most staff and people did NOT wear masks - as the state of MO has no mandate. The servers did have masks on in the restaurant - some wearing it properly, some just over their mouth, some taking them down in the break station, rubbing their face with hand and putting mask on. Ok so that's the atmosphere. The food: 4 course meal: starter/soup or salad/main and dessert. Starter - great. Soup - warm if that but good. Main - dad had prime rib and loved it, I had salmon (don't eat meat) and it was cold. Try #1 - all was cold - salmon and sides. Try#2 - sides warm, salmon cold. Server offer a 3rd try, I declined. Bless his heart he felt so bad he actually compt'd my whole meal. I know I ordered fish on Thanksgiving day and because they were serving so many it sat forever before being served. BUT they offered it on the menu, therefore they should have figured out a way to serve it at a proper temperature. Dessert - good. I will not return for a special meal or any during COVID.

The food was bland and lacked seasoning for both the Strip and Filet. The best thing on the menu was the onion rings.

The wait staff (includes hostess, bartender, table server, kitchen server) is not required to wear face masks during this pandemic. Most but not all customers wore masks into the restaurant. We are not locals and felt very exposed. The chicken and salmon dishes were good, but we both left a plate of noodles behind. The final bill for 2 entrees, two salads, and two non alcoholic drinks was $100, value versus food. Our waitress was sweet and helpful. No one asked us if we were celebrating anything (we were, our anniversary!). Hoped to be enchanted, but maybe because of time of year in this 2020 year of the pandemic, the experience was meh.

really disappointed reservations were at 7 got there early 6ish seated immediately but were told already out of prime rib and the menu was very limited. The Salmon entree I had was very good and the HK Soup was very good. My girlfriend got the turkey steak was dry and hard as a rock she ate one small bite and that was it. She is not a complainer so you go lucky she just ate her vegetables and we moved on. Our server was good and the atmosphere was good. The food selection was very weak and I don't think we would go back.

Let me tell you about our experience. We made a reservation and when we arrive for it...you were closed. WTF?! No one bothered to call or message us so we ended up going else where. We will never come back to your restaurant again or the Lodge of the Four Seasons. Horrible experience.

First off we had reservations for over a month we we were created the Gentleman informed us that the lake view seating was for reservations only..Ok like I said we had reservations😒the Girl waiting on us could only talk about how she disliked talking to people and how she was actually rude to people at Wal-Mart when not working. Wasn't sure why she was working as a waitress means she doesn't like people. Had to ask twice for our drinks. My husband had the surf and turf he really liked his Shrimp and Steak. I had the Turkey steak, it was very dry. Mashed potatoes were really good. We had to ask for the check.
Piano music was good but VERY LOUD. And it cost 108.00.
We will not go back here to eat. However we loved the resort itself... We will just go off the property to eat next time.
