    A big okay. They seated us at the back of the restaurant in the patio area. The heaters kept the temperature reasonable on this January evening but we passed a lot of nicer tables within the restaurant on the way in. Our first table wobbled badly so we were reseated but watched a couple more guests change from that table after us. The food was fine and the server did her best but could have used some further training. No removal of the appetizer dishes after the meal arrived and no check up of the meal and drink refresh. We were a little disappointed.

    This was a disappointing evening for New Years Eve. We were seated way in the back by the kitchen door with lots of kitchen noise and an overpowering seafood smell. Our table was very wobbly and full of leaves from being outside in the fall season. The food was ok. Service was underwhelming.

    As always, the food was excellent, and we always enjoy the upscale atmosphere in their dining room. Our server was good and as attentive as she could be given the large number of diners she was assigned to serve. The dining room was a bit noisy given the full house, and it was a bit chilly in the dining room despite the nearby fireplace. It almost felt like they were running A/C or an air exchanger on high. Great place to dine, though.

    I would definitely come back here again! The food was fantastic. We were there on a holiday weekend Saturday, and it was crazy busy, but the staff was very professional, and very evidently hard-working. While our food was a little bit delayed, the quality was excellent and worth the wait.

    We had reservations but still had to wait about 30 minutes to get seated. Our waiter was very soft-spoken so it was difficult to hear him. He was, however, very nice. The food was good. I would go there again in hopes that they were a bit more organized.

    I’ve dined there before—multiple times, but yesterday’s experience was terrible. Took two hours to get appetizers. Our guests with children had to leave because it was almost 10pm and have not gotten their food. Even our drinks (lemonade and water) took 45 minutes. After an hour of waiting for our waitresses to get our food order, one of our guests had to call them over. I will go back of course, but would not book a large group (23 guests).

    Had a good time sitting outside on Mother’s Day. Food was good, but my fries were cold when I got my food. I think the walleye appetizer should have had a few more pieces of fish on it. I should have told the waitress but she was busy so I didn’t say anything.

    The ambiance was pleasant, but the actual food took a very long time to get to the table, both our appetizers and then our entrees. Drinks were refilled when asked and empty plates taken when requested, but it would have been nice if those would have been done without asking. Once the food arrived most of our group enjoyed their meals, especially the Chicken Bacon Ranch wraps, but I had the Turkey Cranberry grilled sandwich and it was small, had very little sauce and was dry. My mashed potatoes were lukewarm and not a very big portion, but tasted fine. The flatbread, goat cheese balls and BBQ sandwich all good good reviews. If I went back I would order everything up front and hope the server could time out getting apps first, but waiting to order entrees really extended our meal. There are so many good restaurants in the area, I’m not sure I’ll be back any time soon.

    We asked for a booth, and the host said he was going to put us in at table instead, with no explanation. We saw multiple booths, open. Possibly there was a shortage of wait staff, though no shortage of hosts. At least five of them were standing at the check-in when we walked in. It took a while to get service, but once the waiter came, he was very friendly and helpful with the menu. Ordered a glass of wine which was lesser quality than expected. The soup was hot but the flavor was strange. Walleye entrée was good, the braised short ribs were very dried out. Service somewhat slow and hard to find our waiter after he first came to the table. We had to track him down for an issue with our bill. When he was available, he was very accommodating and friendly. We both agreed it was okay but not worth going back anytime soon.
