The greeting staff was more than courteous upon our entry, and presenting us with a perfect table. Our waitress, Erin, started things off just right with a pleasant hello, and asking for our preferences. Our service was perfectly slow and easy, and very relaxing. The prime rib was above expectations, taste wise, and the generous portion. The accompanying potatoes and asparagus were perfect as well. Cathe was very pleased with the wine and chocolate-ed strawberries, and notation.
Thank-You for the perfect birthday dinner !!!

Our dinner date for our anniversary was everything we expected. The beautiful view from the deck overlooking Gun Lake was its own ambient quiet on a sunny September evening. We savored our drinks while we waited - not long - for our dinner. Our server, Cody, was attentive and courteous. He recommended the grilled snapper. He was right. It was delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening!

Party of 6 and the weather was "if-y". We started on the deck until the rain came and they were very accommodating to move us inside. Excellent waitress and the food was outstanding. 6 different things ordered and each of us kept raving about how good it was!

We had a 7pm reservation and were seated around 8:15pm. When we attempted to order drinks they were out of almost every item the first 3 people tried to order. We placed our food order, it was at least an hour before our food came. When the food did arrive, it was marginal at best and that’s disappointing as it was not cheap. The steak was over cooked, the fish was over cooked on the ends and under cooked in the middle. When we told the manager he said he was sorry, but then quickly added “you know, it is our busy season and it just happens sometimes”! Our server was great, but her great service did not over compensate for marginal food, too long of wait times, and a manager that was no help. We will not be back and we were a table of 10 foodies who often pay top dollar for exceptional food and drinks.

Wasn’t thrilled that the prices sky rocketed. Ie: chicken sandwich jumped to $15. Need to offer a $10 option
Drinks are a bit pricey too.
Fish was over cooked.
Nice ambiance pricey bill for the food, that wasn’t as awesome as in previous years. Fyi: We have been coming here for over 26 years.

Terrible service. Lazy staff. We bussed our own table - actually cleared our dirty plates and glasses while the wait staff and busboys stood and watched. Manager's excuse was they were too busy, but the restaurant was less than half full.

Hostess was also lazy. We were there to meet another group of people. Rather than taking us to their table, the hostess pointed at the dining room and said "They're in there somewhere."

We ate out on the terrace. it was very hot and the bugs were terrible. a fan would have been nice to possibly keep the bugs away and to keep it cooler.
I would recommend eating inside. however the view was fabulous

I had the chicken sandwich. I asked for the bacon well done, it was fatty and rubbery. The chicken piece was very small, dry and tough. The bun was soggy. I never complain, but this was really poor. They comped my meal, which I appreciated.

Some of the food was excellent - Crab cakes and Mac & cheese. But the brisket was flavorless and overall the food was over priced. I’ll go again for the crab cakes and Mac & cheese but that’s all.

Stayed and dined here for our 36th wedding anniversary. Fantastic food, beautifully presented and great wine list. Very fast service and superb view of Gun Lake. They even brought chocolate covered strawberries to our table on a Happy Anniversary plate following our meal. Could not have had a better experience. So caught up in the moment I forgot to take pics!

It appeared that there was not enough staff. We waited at least 20 minutes before server asked us about our drink order. Also we had to ask multiple times to have the food replenished as things such as cinnamon rolls, bacon, eggs were completely out. Those are staples at a brunch and should constantly be available. For an expensive brunch we expect better service and better and consistent food. We will likely go elsewhere next Mother’s Day.
