    Our service at dinner was fantastic, and the food was amazing! The only thing worth noting is when I showed up with my reservation, they said they don't take reservations. I showed my confirmation email, and they were very confused.

    Server was outstanding and made every attempt to make my meal better. Had the fried chicken sandwich and was disappointed.

    For a place like this I expect the food to be much better. The burger isn't great for the value, but the hot chicken sandwich was good. The server was very nice, but the service was very slow. We even saw someone sit at a table, and ended up leaving because they waited 20 mins and didn't even get offered a water. I feel like Grand View could do better with this place.

    We had made reservations but still had to wait 15 minutes before we were seated and then it was another 20 minutes before we even got menus. The staff we had were awesome, it was just very short staffed for the amount of customers.

    Nestled below the Grandview Lodge, the pub has cold beer and hot food. This is decent fare that will quell hunger pains. Enjoyed the hustle and bustle. The staff worked really hard to meet everyone’s needs.

    Made reservations for a Friday night, so it is understandable that it was busy, however it took 17 minutes to be greeted by our server. Once greeted, the service was great for the remainder of our experience! Live music was great, our spot was great, food was great, drinks were great!

    Our food came quickly, but we waited 30 minutes after requesting the bill. So many people without reservations came in & there were not enough servers on to accommodate.

    We had reservations for a high top table. When we arrived, the restaurant was not busy but all the high tops were taken. We simply just chose another place to sit but it was a little disheartening to see that although they highly recommend that we make reservations we didn’t get to sit where we preferred. Food was fantastic!

    There was a long hair in my daughter’s chili. Told the server, who didn’t seem at all concerned. My sandwich was barely room temperature. For the money, I’d expect more.

    Service was amazing but the food was horrible. My plate clearly just had the Saran Wrap yanked off the top of it before bucking it into the microwave. Never in my life have I had a piece of salmon so dry and hard that I had to use a knife to cut through it.

    We were excited to try the Northwoods Pub! When we arrived, we waited for 15 minutes after our reservation time to speak to the hostess. Once we were seated, we waited another 15 minutes until a staff member came to our table. We ordered drinks and our food. After 20 minutes and our drinks had not arrived, we asked a staff member to check on our drinks. A few minutes later, our drinks arrived…. We took a sip and nearly had to spit it out because it was so foul. At that point we decided to pay for the drinks and cancel our food order. We had been excited to spend our New Year’s Eve on site dining at a Grand View restaurant, but unfortunately ended up eating fast food in a scramble. A disappointing experience!

    Excellent server, a wait before beverages & ordering but not a problem due to lovely server. Only complaint was a “wild taste” with French dip sandwich. All other meals~ Terrific!!! Outdoor ambiance was stunning!!! We’ll be back!

    The bloody Mary Bar was awesome, as was the pistachio creme ale. The food was awful! Our $14 Nashville hot tenders was advertised to be served with pickles and blue cheese, they came with neither. We received two tenders that were 90% bread, way over cooked, and definitely not Nashville hot.These tenders were beyond bad. The poutine was pretty boring, with cold shredded cheese sprinkled on top. The bartender was very nice and cheery. We tipped purely on the the nice people working and not the horrendous food. We will happily pay good money for good food, but this just wasn't it. $75 after tip and we both left not satisfied.

    Avoid the reuben, or be prepared to chew. Whoever created this has no idea of what a quality reuben should be.

    Absolutely loved the igloos!! The main lodge is beautiful and relaxing. The Christmas decorations inside, but especially outside were very tastefully done - I always appreciate and notice those added touches that makes me want to come back! Ate at the pub, and was told they don’t do pizza orders, so that was probably our only small complaint. Overall we had a wonderful time, and will be back!

    There were 10 long time female friends in attendance. We had not all been together for years. The table was ready when we arrived, though we almost lost it to another large group of ladies as it wasn't marked as reserved. They graciously gave it up to us. Server was very attentive and friendly. Food was outstanding. Bloody Mary bar was a hit! The only complaint I would have is that one of my friends put $5 in the juke box and it was silenced by the bartender who was watching a college football game. Rather disappointing as we were in celebration mode and music always helps. We would definitely come again though.

    The bartender was outstanding the whole weekend! He kept tracker of all the customers and took to go orders efficiently and professionally. He deserves a bonus because it was a busy MEA weekend and that was the only bar open.

    Family dinner celebrating an anniversary; we were seated in a quiet, more private area which allowed us to have good conversation without struggling to hear each other. Our server was fairly new to this venue, but did a stellar job of taking care of us and keeping everyone happy. Food was very good and reasonably priced. The experience was just what we hoped for.
