    The steak was not very great for such a high price. I got the New York strip and it tasted like it was drenched in oil and had zero seasoning or flavor. Waitress was great and drinks were great but for as much as it cost the food was a let down.

    Came to celebrate wife's birthday. No special acknowledgement of any kind from the restaurant, none at all for that matter, not even a Happy Birthday, even though it was clearly indicated in reservations and to the host. Brought in a birthday cake to be served at the end of the dinner, was told that candles or sparklers are available, none were added and the cake was brought out in the same plastic store container I dropped it off with...ruined the experience. Food came out cold. The waitress was attentive otherwise.

    We had a lovely brunch at 97 West Kitchen. Food was outstanding and the hotel and dining room was festively decorated for the season. I thought the food was a good value but valet (if over 2 hours $15) and espresso coffee prices were high!

    The fried green tomatoes were excellent. So was the Mexican bread pudding. The 7oz filet was somewhat tough and a disappointment. The house margarita was just so-so, nothing special. The vegetables were not as expected and only cool when served. Overall, we had high expectations, but feel certain we will not return.

    Arrived at the restaurant and were seated around our reservation time but it took about 15 minutes to get waited on. Our waiter was really tied up with a big table so he never really waited on us. We had several different servers over the course of our meal. Luckily we didn’t have anything else planned but one table around us wasn’t very patient. Food was only mediocre, I would expect it to be much better at an upscale place like the Drover. I had salmon and it was overcooked and sides with it weren’t good. My husband had chicken fried steak and it was almost all breading. The cauliflower soup was delicious as an appetizer but the deviled eggs were sweet, definitely not our preference. If we stay at the hotel again, we probably would not visit the restaurant again.

    Our food took a while to get to us. It was our Engagement celebration dinner and they sat us right behind the bar. I requested notecards with special writing on it and that didn’t happen. Food was not very impressive for the price. The noise level was a bit too loud for a dinner setting. Seemed more like a bar to me. Definitely won’t be recommending this place in the future.

    Food was good. Server was pleasant. Management was not prepared for the Holiday rush. Host and management kept seating walk-ins when staff was already overwhelmed with reservation guest. It took over an hour to get appetizers to the table; 45 minutes to get get drinks from the bar to the table. Food came at hour 2, to be fair, we ordered appetizers first then main course. Server was slammed, so it took awhile to order main course. Server apologized and offered to comp our drinks, appetizers and give us dessert. Server also said manager would come by to speak to us. She was very kind and said situation was unacceptable without prompting. One of our guest ordered a cheeseburger plain. Cheeseburger came out with bacon. Server took back and told kitchen to remake not just take bacon off. When burger came back out, a piece of bacon was still there, shocker. Server took it off before we could even ask to see a manager. Server was great. Management never came by the table even though server spoke to 4 of the managers. The restaurant was not full the entire time we were there. I was surprised and disappointed management didn't take the time to stop by the table and at the very least, acknowledge us.

    I was excited to try this restaurant with family visiting from out of town. The place is so cute, food was good but service was not great at all! We waited a long time to be served as well as the food to come out! So by the time our food, we realized we never got our app and the food was not hot (obviously sat for awhile). We never were checked on no refills or to see if we needed anything. We had to ask several people for our check and then waited 20 mins for it to even be picked back up. Could of been greet but was just ok! They charge $699 a night during the holidays they have no excuse but to have outstanding service.

    11/25/2022 12:00 reservations. Service was a bit slow, but friendly and professional. We ordered drinks which did not arrive until our appetizers arrived. We ordered our meals (6 guests) and 45min later we told they were out of ribs! We had to order different meals.. finally when our food arrived, meals were cold, fries were soggy. Seemed like our food sat while they scrabbled to fill order. While we waiting for our meals, table next to us were served ribs! Over priced-over hyped- not worth it. we were told they validate parking.. at the end of our meal we were told only for breakfast. We had lunch.

    97 West charged a pre dinner charge for Thanksgiving dinner but ran out of prime rib by 6pm with 3 hours left until the last serve time. They also ran out of stuffing and were so short on pie we received a piece so small we could eat it in 2 bites. The restaurant is vey loud !

    Came here for Thanksgiving dinner. For $68 a plate, the portions were very small. I left still hungry. I didn’t even get the roll I paid for. Restaurant was loud as there was a football game on the TV. Not exactly the ‘classy’ expectations I had. Not impressed. Won’t be back.

    We love the Drover and attended their Easter brunch but the Thanksgiving dinner was a bit on the stingy side for the price ($89) . The 3 sides were served family style and allowed for perhaps a quarter cup for each of our 4 family members . The main entree was fine and there was a good choice . One roll each . The cranberry sauce was served in a tiny stainless cup - maybe 2 tablespoons total. Skinny slice of pumpkin or pecan pie , coffee not included .

    Slow service & mediocre food quality. Our server also was handling a table of 15-16 which took most of his time. Four small slices of pie, with a small scoop of cream, were very generic and disappointing. I wouldn't recommend this to others & was not up to my expectations of Drover Hotel.

    Wonderful Thanksgiving dinner! Party of 4, each had 4 different entrees and everyone was fully satisfied. Wonderful ambience and although the service had a highlight(she took our pictures), overall expected a higher level throughout. It was all or our first time to dine out on Thanksgiving and are grateful that you were open.

    I made reservations for the prix fixe dinner menu on Thanksgiving. We were sat quickly, and the restaurant is gorgeous. The food was actually really delicious, although the portions were a little on the light side for the price. My biggest complaint was the service. We spent over $200 for 2 people, so I was expecting "fine dining" level service. However, our server was inattentive and unavailable. A different server took our drink orders, brought us our food, and running our card (after waiting for 30 minutes for our check). The poor service detracted from the overall experience, and made it quite disappointing, honestly.
