We sat at a table a long time and never got waited on.
Finally, we asked the owner to take our order. Our water never got refilled. Perhaps the restaurant needs more wait staff.

We've been there before but never again. The first time we ate there we were shoved in the farthest reaches of the restaurant , in a corner, like we were being punished. I guess that's what happens when you don't have a reservation. To be fair we said we'd give it another try. Well, this time we were way up front in the mainstream of traffic.

My companion ordered a dish with salmon but asked that no sauce be put onit. Of course, they came with the sauce pour all over. Obviously it was sent back and now we have someone either waiting to eat while the new dish was prepared or eating alone.

I ordered the meatloaf special. I was told how popular it was and I'm a sucker for meatloaf. Well, it must have been extremely popular because when I saw my plate there were little crumbly pieces of what was supposed to be meatloaf. To me meatloaf is served with slices from a loaf. It seemed as if they were scrapping the bottom of the pan to make a serving. Not very appetizing.

As I stated earlier, never again.

Have been there quite a few times mainly for lunch. Wen with another couple. My salmon was cooked perfectly but fries were barely warm. My husband has pasta. Left half of it on his plate. But the worst was our friend ordered a BLT and onion rings. Onion rings were good but again warm. The worst his bacon was so not cooked. The fat was still creamy. He took it all off the sandwich. Left it on his plate. The server picked up plates, did a double take when he saw the bacon. But did not say a word. The unanimous decision was won’t go again for dinner.

Service was terrible. Brought one incorrect cocktail and we returned one meal and had it taken off the check. This formally excellent place is going down hill fast.

Hopefully they get the food quality back to how it was 8 months ago. Food was not hot again. Getting old!
Prep coms out different every time . Chicken parm tonight and they stacked it ??? Why. Stuck to each other and not in a way I’ve ever been served and not in a good way! Sorry

Tim is the best!!! The service at Pinnacle is always first class. Happy hour makes it extra special!! My wife loves the Shrimp with Risotto!! The accompanying asparagus makes the dish better. Sliders and fried cheese appetizers made the meal even better!!

Cold food ! Not as good as it was 4 months ago and the price went up! Great selection of foods and need to bring back tilapia along with more vegan food!
They need to figure out the kitchen then it would be excellent for a couple times a week!

One person in our party said their rice was cold, though the scallops were warm....no compensation when mentioned to the wait staff. Kind of embarrassing.

Love the food at this place but sometimes the service is a little challenging. It took a while for someone to initially come to our table and then after we ordered drinks they were apparently forgotten but came after we reminded the server. Overall the food is really good.

The food was the best thing about this visit. Waited a good ten minutes before seeing a waiter. Finally, a waiter appeared and asked if we were ready to order. We said yes, we are ready. He then walked away and we never did see him again. Tried to signal two of the girls working the hostess sections...they ignored us. Then we asked a bus boy who our waiter was and he said, "oh he is outside with customers but I will get someone to take your order". That someone was the manager and he took our order but with no particular apology proffered....not even a complimentary desert.

Food was good. My medium rare steak was over cooked! Other 3 entree were fine. Service was spotty. Waitress was strictly an order taker!
Nice place. Patio seating was nice. Most staff seemed to not want to be there (Memorial Day) !

The last time we came, we were seated at a tiny table next to the entrance to the kitchen. Waiters were bumping into us as they walked by and it was very noisy. This time, I requested a table not near the kitchen and it was great. They should remove that tiny table so the waiters can move through there more easily, and not subject guests to that kind of service. Our waiter was great this time and the food was tasty, as always. I particularly liked the $2.00 off all wine special!
