There wasn't any social distancing at the restaurant. The tables were on top of one another. Will not go back

This is great restaurant with impeccable service and outstanding food at a very fair price. They could possibly expand the wine menu slightly, but the wines offered were very good. I would recommend that they offer a few local wines such as M Cellars in Geneva. Very, very good wines.

4 girls out to lunch for 2 birthdays. Loved the view, spaced out great, & our waitress was fabulous!
I had salmon burger which I loved, breaded fish was great. Best part hot fudge brownie with coffee ice cream & birthday scoops of ice cream ended a wonderful lunch. Noise level wasn’t great because they were doing construction but I can’t wait to come back

This resturant was a perfect outing for my family and I. I enjoyed a center cut steak. Which was cooked to perfection. Our server was great. Handled us with kindness and care. Got everything we needed. Also was able to answer any question needed answers to. Definitely would love to go back in the spring/summer.

It was disappointing experience. Our server was absolutely clueless about the menu. We asked him few questions about specials and few questions about the food he had no idea. He eventually told us but he had to ask someone else. Our calamari and shrimp appetizer was chewy, my husband ordered salmon and asked for medium it was completely over cooked. I had walleye with fries and it was very dry. Truly disappointed.

I cannot say enough good things about how they treated us there, I asked for a table with a view and told them we were having a much needed date night and they were perfect, they exceeded my expectations all around. Can’t thank them enough.

Exceedingly average food at a gorgeous location! Food was hugely disappointing. Overcooked "ahi" tuna (it was like cooked cardboard) on a "heart of palm salad" that had a single heart of palm in it. The steak on our steak and fries was well-done despite being ordered rare. And the rest of our entrees were just mediocre at best. We had empty wine and cocktail glasses and had to ask for refills since our server didn't seem to notice. Too bad. It's such a gorgeous place and we are always looking for somewhere to take out-of-towners.

Wonderful location with great views of the river and traditional areas of the Village along the bridge over the falls. Atmosphere is upbeat with a nice casual feel with diverse seating arrangements to suit outside viewing and inside tables with an open feel. Food menu is a bit challenging. Can't go wrong with the basics, like the vegie burger and fries. Nice place to visit and enjoy!

Three beef burgers and salmon burgers are very good. The he walleye is as breaded and deep fried...very fresh but bland. The biscuits were really delicious. I’ve been there twice and the service staff is top notch and the atmosphere is wonderful.

We were originally going to be seated at a table that was extremely dimly lit. We did ask the host if there was another option in which she provided a different table in close proximity to other tables. It was fine enough but for people more concerned with social distance it probably wouldn't have been a good option. Otherwise, the drinks and food were great!

Our order came out wrong, after a long wait. They were not apologetic about their error. When it came back correctly the meat was charred. Love the ambiance, however we will not be back for their food.

We have eaten in this restaurant many times, through 3 name changes. I think this newest concept is the best...love the patio and am looking forward to warmer weather so we may enjoy it.
I hadn’t realized the restaurant was no longer a part of the Hyde Park group.
Was looking forward to using a Cleveland Independents card.
So far as the food, it was good, nothing special. I had the shrimp...good , flavor-wise, but a bit tough! My sister had the trout, which, while not an attractive dish, seemed to please her.
The service was super! I can’t remember our server’s name, a young blond woman, but she was terrific. Drinks were great, and of value for the price.

Worst dinner experience in years. Mostly due to the extremely poor service but the lack of distancing was alarming. I wouldn’t have wanted to eat this close to other tables in pre-Covid times but seriously come on this was ridiculous.
Food was average at best.
Service was worst I’ve had in years. He wanted to take our appetizer order before drinks, delivered the appetizers before even taking our meal order. Just all around bad experience.

Our appetizers and entrées were scrumptious! The desserts, (Apple crisp and Keylime pie) were a bit of a disappointment, However. But our excellent server more than made up for the ho-hum desserts! She was attentive, knowledgeable and quick.
BRAVO‼️

One of the best settings in town - beautiful views of the falls, amazing outside patios and seating options and great staff / service. The food was average, though. What you would expect at a mid-level chain restaurant. Really wanted to love it and would definitely go back for the views and drinks.

Side note, almost no social distancing at all in the restaurant - every table full and at the same pre-COVID proximity to each other.

First time visit, a bit crowded for my liking but we drove 30 minutes to come to chagrin falls and this restaurant came recommended so we thought we’d try it out regardless. Our server was excellent very efficient and informative. The only disappointing factor was the food. We ordered the heavenly biscuits for an appetizer and they were stale. Both my husband and I ordered the lemon chicken, it was quite flavorless and undercooked. I’m not sure if we will come back but if we do I think we will try something else for our entrees. Hopefully the food will be better next time.
