    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.

    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.

    A really good meal but plan to spend a lot of time between being seated, getting drinks, ordering, and then getting your meal. Slow dining experience test the ambiance and food make up for it. Just plan to take time to enjoy a night out.

    Made a reservation for 8pm on a Tuesday night and we weren’t seated until 8:45 as they kept telling us we had “someone in front of us” on the list. The service was so bad at the restaurant that the amazing food couldn’t make up for it. The bar area was great and bartenders kept us stocked until we ate, but the restaurant itself was subpar and really doesn’t justify the hype. Bad service ruins a good meal…2/5

    We made reservations for outdoor seating . We were seated inside at the smallest possible table, no room for appetizers plates . Asked for water with no ice, straws. Server forgot and rolled his eyes when we asked to bring it again. He brought entrees and did not get dirty appetizer plates. No room to put anything on the table. We had to ask him to get dirty plates out. He also brought wrong entree order. We did not ask to exchange, since it look like he was giving us a favor and was bothered by his work. He still got his tips, I understand the shortage of restaurant business but he did not even try to do his job. It is a beautiful place, decor , grounds are most outstanding. The service was disappointing and poor. I had guest from Europe and it was very unpleasant lunch experience, while I was hoping for a great one.

    Food was amazing as usual. Service was not great this time, took over 10 minutes for us even to put in a drink order. Then it was over 15 minutes to get our drinks… which one drink order was wrong. Food was great though, ambience was lovely. Just the service was really bad this time. Our server kept going to this one table and Chatting to them constantly.

    Food was very good. We had the fried oysters, deviled egg, chicken fried steak and Cobb salad. All very good. Deviled eggs especially good. Service was very good. Would have been nice to avoid sitting so close to another party. There was room in the restaurant and we had reservations. Always disappointing to have to be crammed in. Overall experience very good. Would definitely return, just request avoiding listening to another conversation for 2 hours. Thanks
