The setting on the patio looking north over the 18th green and adjoining pond is excellent. The wait staff work very diligently to please and serve in a timely manner. The restaurant reduced their menu during Covid and I would like to see some new offerings, but the items they serve are excellent.

Very nice, peaceful setting - it was a Tuesday evening so no big crowds. It took a little too long to have server come to get drink orders (maybe short staffed?). Food was good, although found Shrimp Scampi order a bit small for the price. Wished they offered a larger wine by the glass selection. Overall a good experience. Yes, will be back.

Service on Friday night was horrible. Incorrect orders were taken, wrong items came from kitchen, food was cold, drink orders were repeatedly forgotten. The music at 7pm on the patio (saxophone), was incredibly too loud. I am not an old person either - I’m in my 30s, but the music was so loud I could barely hear the others at my table talking. It’s not a concert venue - it’s a restaurant. You are not the performance, you are the background music. Background meaning: customers should be able to converse with each other without having to yell across the table.
Prices were unreasonable: a mediocre burger for $22? A sloppy shrimp scampi for $36? Napa salad with a small piece of fish for $38? “Baseball stadium” quality nachos were a joke. I used to like this place. But I’ll probably be thinking twice about returning.

We met friends after golf for dinner. The service was horrible. We were a party of 6 & they sat us at two tables & chairs that were different heights. We had to ask our server 3 times for water. It took 1 hour and 30 minutes for us to order & receive our food. When the food arrived, it was cold.

Based on my observation, they were very under staffed. However, our server, Haley was nice.

I had the caesar salad with salmon and the salmon was soooo good. Perfectly grilled.
The salad however was soggy. Lettuce was too wet and limp. The only down note on a very enjoyable lunch.

We have come to O’Neill’s many times. The appeal has always been the view of the golf course. The food has always been satisfactory, but average at best. Now the prices are ridiculously high for the quality of the food. A wedge salad for $19? Seldom is a wedge salad that price at a five star restaurant with white table cloths and renowned service. Hamburgers are now $22. What are they thinking? For these prices we will go to our other favorite places with far better quality food

Usually, we love it here- but tonight's service was lacking and the flies were ridiculous- Not their fault but annoying. Had the clam chowder- not a favorite but the quesadillas were spot on with generous sour cream and guac.

Enjoying a second lunch experience at O’Neills was just as delightful as the first. Great food, excellent service, prices reasonable and the atmosphere was lovely. A very peaceful and calming time to relax and enjoy a meal.

Have had lunch here several times, and it was always enjoyable. However, obviously this is not a dinner place. The BBQ ribs were horrible, fatty, smothered in way more sauce than needed and absolutely the worse I have ever had. The cole slaw wasn't too great either. Service? Yes, we were served and the server never appeared again until it was time to give us a bill. This was our anniversary, and we had been looking forward to it. Oh well......

I took a neighbor friend to breakfast and we had the best experience and time. I want to recognize our server waiter Ritchie he was top notch and so accommodating and pleasant he makes excellent drinks and the breakfast was delicious, so along with the scenery outdoors it made for a wonderful experience and I had e not stopped talking about it.

Well it was okay. The menu was so limited and for a Caesar salad it was 15 dollars. Lettuce was wilted , my family order a few other items which were either over cooked or soggy.

Was impressed for the 175 dollar dinner we had.

My fiancé walked into the bathroom and their was someone doing cocaine on the counter in the bathroom. Classy.

Went for Sunday brunch on June 6. Been many times before. Website said sunday brunch and music currently active - NOT TRUE. Drove all the way there - no indication on Opentable or website that there's no brunch, no music. THANKS A LOT - very inconsiderate. Ordered from menu - we don't eat meat. Good luck here.....one fish & chips offering, which was really terrible and overpriced. Mrs. Pauls shaped, pre-frozen, thin little bricks. Yuck-and for $19!! Wife asked for salmon on a taco instead of beef. You'd have thought she'd had asked to eat naked or something from the reaction. Cousin's salmon salad had two pieces of salmon the size of a quarter. If they really cared here, they could just as well kept serving brunch, but from the kitchen, not a buffet, which is the covid worry. Won't be back.
