I always consider going to the Prospector a treat. This time around, looking at the menu prices made me really ponder whether the treat was worth it.

We had reservations for a party of six and they were easily able to accommodate and the table was even ready early! Which was nice. However, the tables were a little bit close together. I definitely had to watch my back if I needed to leave my seat.

The service was absolutely outstanding. Not only our waiter, but all of the service staff were interacting with us and our two children. It was very humbling.

Cons: High menu prices, tables are a little close together (which makes it a louder atmosphere by default)

Pros: Everything else - service, food quality, filling our drinks (which is important), selection, etc

The service we received from our waitress was awesome. She was friendly and we never had an empty glass. We knew she was there but not in an in your face kind of way. We look forward to going back

Total disappointment. Strip loins looked like they came out a $10 four pack from Walmart. Salad bar was dismal and the waitress, although entertaining and personable, forgot an appetizer we ordered. Not the same experience it used to be. We won’t be back.

Kids meal did not include drinks, extra 3.00 for salad bar . Fish bones ,fries were thin and seemed like they had been sitting under a lamp for a long time.
Smaller bowls for soup
Use to love going before we moved. Probly will not return.
Was not told any meal specials only drink specials
