The drinks are overpriced for what you get. Way too much ice in a very small glass and no alcohol taste at all. My salmon entree was mediocre due to the salmon being overcooked. The brussel sprout side dish, however, was very tasty.

Food was bland. Like, really bland.

salt and pepper shrimp- cooked nicely, but flavorless.

steelhead salmon entree- bland, and the accompanied asparagus VERY dry and bland. The white sauce didn't help at all. Presentation was also very odd, as it came in a bowl.

steelhead salmon sandwich- my friend said this was actually ok.

brussel sprouts- described as crispy and with bacon. Was not crispy and the "bacon" was a vinaigrette, not actual crumbles. They tried to flash char it, but still was not satisfactory. Sent it back.

An overall overpriced meal I did not enjoy.

Wait person a little slow and while he was nice, didn't seem to be all that involved in his job; you didn't have black tea, bathroom could be better taken care of; and ribs were more fatty than meat. Overall, a disappointment considering the cost based on the experience.

Everyone had a different dish. Some were tasty, others just ok. The fish special was a bit disappointing. It came with a small half cheese of a potato (maybe 3” long) that was prepared twice baked- it had two small pieces of bacon on one end and was plain on the remaining 3/4 of the potato. The fish itself was supposed to be topped with crab- there was very little, which was masked with the excessive amount of greens. The prime rib was the best plate- zero complaints there. Mashed potato’s were delicious. The braised short rib was good as well. The blackened sirloin was a very thin piece- maybe 1/4 thick. Not what was expected. Lastly, for the cost of the plates, switching to a “charge for bread” seemed petty. Overall, some things were good, others less than ideal.
