    Our waiter was not very professional, I am in my 40’s and I was carted, and he asked me to take it out of my protective sleeve, made a commit about where I lived and if I had tried a restaurant there but never said thank you or commented about age, (creepy to a woman I might add. ) Special was ok, not great and definitely not worth $85, dessert was unripe fruit in a cobbler with no oats or cobbler to it, just hard fruit and corn syrup, and to top it off, for such a “suppose to be nice restaurant “ I am NOT interested in walking through a casino to get to a restaurant, so sadly, for these reasons we have to chop you from our list, and will not return.

    The waiter was beyond polite and knowledgeable of the menu. He made a great suggestion and I couldn't thank him enough. The quality of dinner was excellent. Steak cooked perfect, lobster flavorful. Overall one of if not the best experience for dinner with my wife I've ever had. We will be going again.

    TCRW, this used to be a great discovery for us. This visit was quite disappointing. The beef lettuce wraps were the best part of the meal, and they were not warm. The Beef Bourguignon was way over salted being close to inedible. Desserts ok. Wine values were great as during HH. We should have tried the surf and turf as their fillets are hard to ruin.

    I’ve been here a few times and it’s been great, hence why I booked for Valentine’s Day. My girls risotto was too hard (pre al dente), her filet was tough, and I don’t think I’ve had a worse Old Fashioned (which they charged me $48 for 2 drinks (sangria and 1 old fashioned). Server never checked on us about the drinks, never came back to see if we wanted anything else. She still got tipped 20+ % because my mother raised me right, but I won’t be going there again unfortunately. Lobstet Bisque and French Onion Soup was the best part of the meal.

    On our first visit, we went for Valentine's Day. Ordered off the menu having steaks, potato and a vegetable. They were accommodating with switching items (upcharges applied, but we expected and were OK with that). Service was good but not intrusive. The food was good. There was a hiccup on an accompaniment and the charge was removed (even though they did bring it out after we commented). I was expecting a large potato and thus leftovers, but the potatoes were small, and we both thought appropriate sized so as not to 'overstuff' yourselves. Overall, the variety of menu options and the quality of the meal left us to conclude we would definitely be back.

    Made reservation because had an excellent experience in the past. Arrived early. Went to bar to have drink while waiting for our table. Could not get served. Ordered from your couples menu. Appetizer good. Ribs were like petrified cardboard. Desert was good. Service was good but not friendly. Made a special trip to celebrate an occasion. Won't be back. Would rate restaurant as ordinary and expensive. We expected expensive.

    We had a delicious dinner and our server Nate was fantastic also. From the shrimp cocktails and salads to our walleye entree, everything was prepared perfectly. Thank you!

    I ordered an 8 ounce filet mignon that ended up being dried out, well done and over cooked. Our waitress was great, sides were delicious, bread and the walleye. It is disappointing that a restaurant to be known for steak did not meet or exceed expectations. Especially for the cost of 50.00 for the filet mignon.

    The only issue we've experienced lately is a mix-up in steaks when served. I would suggest using color coded picks to identify the doneness.

    Food was good but not anything super special. We sat in the bar area to watch the football game and there was only one server but she did an amazing job and was really nice.
