    there was a large group in the middle of the place. They were loud, used profanity, I thought I was at a sports bar. The table of 2 next to us was celebrating there anniversary and nobody could hear each other talk across the table. It would have been nice if someone with authority told them to keep it down, but instead they apologized to the rest of the restaurant as they left.

    This was our first time to try the place and very bad experience. We made a reservation months ago and had confirmation. Upon arriving - the host seemed confused and the table we were originally taken to was already occupied. Got seated at another table. We had a PILE of dirty dishes left on the table the entire meal. Nobody ever picked up any of our dishes from appetizer to salad to meal. Had to ask multiple times for water as service never offered water. Ordered cocktails and would have had more - but server never asked us if we wanted another round. For a meal that cost over $300 for the 4 of us - this was a terrible experience. Won't be back and will definitely share with any of my friends to stay away. Better places to spend money than this place.

    The filet mignon was the best steak I have ever had! Garlic mashed potato’s were very good too. Our waiter was great. He was very busy and still managed to be very attentive. His name is Shentel or something along those lines. Very good experience!

    The food was very good. The special, sea bass with risotto, was excellent! The rib eye was very good and cooked appropriately rare, as requested. Baked potato and dinner rolls also excellent. Service was efficient and pleasant. The space where we were seated was not especially attractive, just kind of tucked back in a small side room with no windows. Meals are expensive, but we knew prices before going, so expected them.

    Very disappointed. My friend and I dressed up to go to a fancy restaurant because it was in a nice hotel and the prices were a little high. We had a reservation at 6;45 pm and showed up early to be told to wait in the hall. We were not told about the bar in the restaurant so we went to the front of the hotel and asked about a bar and was told it was in the restaurant. Went back to the restaurant and told the girl at the hostess stand we would be in the bar. Our reservation time game and went so 20 minutes later we went to the hostess stand to ask and they said they would seat us. We sat away from everyone in a big table for 6 when there was only 2 it was very quiet. The food was ok. The Lobster bisque only had a couple pieces of lobster. The salad tasted like ranch dressing and not Cesar dressing. The grill asparagus was raw with grill marks. After we were finished they brought us the bill and we thought that it was rather high for the quality of the food we just had. I would not recommend this restaurant to any one else.

    It was our anniversary - my husband had NY Strip and it was exceptional, I had a filet special and it was really bad. We were seated next to a large side room full of drunken golfers, which was irritating. The restaurant is obviously functioning short staffed - no table side cherries jubilee, they ran out of martini glasses and served our drinks in a high ball glass. If you want to charge 10 dollars for a baked potato you have to offer the ambience and amenities to make it worthwhile. In the past the restaurant has met those expectations, this visit we were sorely disappointed.

    We were visiting West Baden for a week for our anniversary and went to the restaurant twice. Even with reservations made long in advance and confirmed with the concierge the week before, we were placed at a small 2 seat table directly across from the bar. Many who could not get reservations were piled around the bar for to go orders or to try to eat at the bar. We saw folks in swimwear, children on gaming devices and loud unhappy patrons and were repeatedly bumped from behind. Our food (NY Strip for me Cowboy Ribeye for husband) was well prepared and good. Exceptions were the shrimp cocktail which was watery and not firm - unpleasant texture. Our server was kind but paid little attention. Charged us for a glass of wine instead of a bottle and then called our room multiple times to explain why our bill changed once, twice, then a third time. I felt severely overdressed in my cocktail dress, with wet people from the bar behind me - needless to say ambiance couldn’t have been worse.
