I frequent the restaurant often but this last time was not good at all. We were so disappointed with the food that we did not eat it but we still paid full price and tipped the waitress handsomely because it was not her fault that the food sucked. We will not be eating there anything soon

We were seated next to the fireplace and my wife appreciated that! There was live music tonight and the singer was very engaging. We come here often and we are never disappointed. My wife had the pizza and she said it was great and I had the pot roast and this too was excellent!

Our waitress however was amazing and the best we’ve ever had! It was our first time sitting outside and boy was it beautiful! We all ordered filet mignon and 2 came out a little cold, but they made fresh new ones quickly and even adjusted some of the bill! No complaints at all, this location is always amazing and we will continue to come Eve try 1-2 weeks like we always do

Jessica did a great job of accommodating everyone at the table. My son loved the experience and thought all the tvs were cool and loved the fact he got a delicious pepperoni pizza !!! Only recommendation is to offer smaller portions (1/2) slab of ribs or small option for child menu even though I understand it’s an adult environment… with a hotel coming this is something to consider as children visiting will be more frequent

Ordered 2 ribeyes, 1 of which was medium and the other one medium well. Medium came out to be rare And medium well was close to rare. Server took back the one steak and asked for a new one, however chef said he would just bring the one that was sent back up to temperature. Needless to say the steak came back to the table and it was not edible. Very disappointing. Manager came to the table and apologized but that was it. Unfortunately not the first time this has happened.
