    Myself and my wife are 45 and 38 years old. We got carded for a glass of wine….. was told they had no gluten-free desserts yet I have had gluten-free dessert many times worst case they could’ve sold us ice cream with chocolate on it… specifically told him we needed a gluten-free experience for me and my state came out with fried onions touching it. I’ve been sick for a day because I’m super sensitive and have celiac. Likely won’t return. For $200 I can go many other places.

    We had great food and service. Filet with peppercorn and a Prime Rib were wonderful and well cooked. Views can't be beat! Definitely be back!

    The service was excellent. Most of the food was very good. A little disappointed in the 16oz prime rib. It was very thick, but it was a little overcooked and it was not tender like prime rib I’ve had in the past.

    My wife and I split the 18 oz ribeye, ordered it medium rare. When it arrived it was extremely rare and we had to send it back. The lobster Mac & cheese was ok but not the best. We really wanted to enjoy our dinner there as we came from out of town but it just didn’t happen. The service we received from our waitress was amazing.

    We love the food and service is great. We will always have carrot cake for dessert and save some for breakfast the next morning. It is so neat that the owner goes around to say hello to the guests.
