    We love the food at Swiftwater! Have tried most everything and keep going back for the Steelhead. It is always cooked and seasoned perfectly. This time two of us split the Chopped Salad and Steelhead; enough food that we were both full but not stuffed. Our drinks came out within minutes and the food was quick as well. Great ambiance, you can be dressed up or down and be just right.

    The chef seems to equate flavor with adding more salt. Every dish we ordered was way over seasoned to the point that our sever (who was excellent) brought us our own pitcher of water. The food prep was unremarkable and predictable in presentation. Consider brining the chicken rather than assaulting it with spices alone.

    Good service, nice location , food was poor and way over priced. $48 for king salmon that was way overcooked, actually tasted like it had been cooked much earlier then reheated. Caesar salad was small limp lettuce bits, again obviously not prepared from fresh, crisp head of lettuce . Very poor value, won’t go back.

    My Brussels sprouts were overcooked and mushy, my friends charcuterie was very lacking and small for the price. Our waitress was a bit snooty, and didn’t even refresh our water, we had to ask. And to top it all off, she couldn’t even divide the bill into three. Plus the gluten free options are severely lacking. The problem is, they are very inconsistent. Sometimes the food is really good, although over priced, and sometimes it’s not. This evening was very disappointing and one of my friends who came says she’ll never go back.

    We like the Hoist House: it is convenient, friendly and welcoming. The wines are abundant and the variety excellent. The Food though: the portion are tooooooooooo BIG with prices to match. Who needs a 32+ oz Tomahawk or a 28 oz porterhouse for $110 and $120 respectively? Coal miners? The coal mines closed a long time ago. We opted for a Wedge salad and the meatloaf. The Wedge salad came out looking like a sno-capped Mt. Rainier, with raw bacon strips apparently representing crevices, cherry tomatoes the size of nordic backpacks, all covered in a snowy creamy blue cheese dressing with chunks of blue cheese looking like ice-falls. The whole thing was impressive! The meatloaf was the size of a Christmas Fruit Cake, with a density to stop a door as well. The loaf was dry and the sauce overly spicy. the mashed potatoes were excellent as were the green beans. SO: like the place, but can't give high marks for the food. oh, and our server Erin was wonderful , as are all the staff at the Hoist House.
