Every thing was great except the waiter forgot to bring out a birthday desert for my friend. Besides that I would recommend this place. We all had a fun time and enjoyed the food.

The host staff wasn't friendly when we arrived. We were surprised to be placed in the bar rather than the dining area. Our waiter was good. The food was not worth what we had to pay for it. Very disappointed.

I took my Daughter and Son for Christmas Eve. I was excited to get the reservation a couple months in advance. When we got there we were told the kitchen closed in a half hour (our reservation was for 2:30). The waitress came by 3 times to take our order spaced about 3 minutes apart. We were not ready but had to order something. We then were cold (not one heater on patio) and proceeded inside. We were told by the bar tender on duty (a woman, very rude) that there was no way we were going to sit inside as they were preparing for the 5:30 seating (it was 3:00 and there were plenty of tables). We were being scolded for making reservations for 2:30! We cancelled our food order and left. Why did they take the reservation if we were going to be rushed out of the restaurant. I will not be going back for any holiday celebration or brunch for that matter. So sad that such a fine restaurant treats guest as they do. They will not be labeled "fine" for long, if they continue to treat their guest as they do.

We go to this place quite often.
This last time we had a poor service by our server although the food and drink quality was top notch with variety of the options and great golf court scenery and ambiance.
Our server was angry from the beginning. We needed help on multiple issues and dealing with him was very frustrating. For example, on two occasions we needed him to adjust the shade to avoid direct sunlight and he always started with arguing that moving umbrellas wouldn't help and at the end he moved them and it helped. At some point towards the end of our brunch, he just ignored our table for a long time.,i had to look for him around and ask him to come over and take our order for coffee. He took my order, turned around and walk away! and i had to yell like Hey other people at the table also want coffee why don't you properly take our order? he eventually did so. What an unfit server for a great restaurant...

It was ok. I reserved a table and they had it outside! It was freezing so we had to sit in the bar. Food is ok. Service is just ok. Had to flag down waiter 3 or 4 times for drink refills.

The brunch at O'Neill's s wonderful. So many options, even for my daughter who is a vegetarian.
The outside patio is well shaded with a great view of the golf course and hills beyond. We were a party of seven and our waiter was wonderful accommodating our drink choices and splitting the bill.

Prime rib was overcooked/dry. The variety of food was very good. For the price, I would say the value of the food was 3.5 overall. Our server was great!

We sat in the cozy bar. The fireplace was on, making the room very cozy. Our server was very good (apparently, he is also a fireman - thanks for your service) and kept our beverages full and our dirty plates cleared.

Looking for a gorgeous Sunday Brunch spot with free-flowing champagne and all sorts of goodies? Look not further. O'Neills is our go-to place for a special brunch and everything about it is outstanding. Delicious grill station with smoked salmon, shrimp, sausage, steak, and bone marrow. All the traditional favorites executed beautifully. A lovely desert station with a kiddo-approved chocolate fountain. Beautiful salads, lots of great seafood, including crab legs, huge shrimp and so much more. The price is absolutely fair for the quality of the food, service and location. The only thing I wish is that it was a little more affordable for the kids. I have 2 that barely eat, so it's pricey for 2 monkeys that eat 1 piece of french toast.

A little pricey - $40.00 for two breakfast entrees including coffee, tax, and tip. For a special occasion it is worth the extra expense. Ambience is lovely, overlooking the golf course with a lake and mountains in the background. Although at the end of a suburban street and near residential areas, this feels like a mountain resort.

Sunday Breakfast was fantastic. Service was fantastic, but our party was seated right next to where the entertainment was setting up. It was loud and disruptive. The restaurant was not crowded, only one other table was occupied. So We asked to move to the other side of the patio. Other than that we will continue to frequent this restaurant.
