“Serving” breakfast, lunch and dinner, you’ll “love” the new Racquets Restaurant inside of Boar’s Head Sports Club. Drop in during the morning hours for a warm breakfast or just grab a salad to go for lunch. Evenings include a full dinner menu prepared by our top-notch culinary team. If you're just looking to relax and have a drink in a vibrant atmosphere, our selection of adult beverages is bigger than Andy Roddick's first serve. Choose from an array of fine wines or just kick back with a cider, cocktail or local brew.

We didn't realize that our annual Christmas season visit to the Old Mill Room would be transferred to the Racquets location due to construction and renovations of the Old Mill Room. A plate was returned and I was charged anyway. The atmosphere is basically a gym. It should not be listed as a restaurant. It was very bad quality cafeteria food. We should have walked out but we were optimistic. We had all traveled hours to meet one another for a holiday brunch and couldn't readjust our schedules. If we had known it would be that bad we would have all gone elsewhere.

Really hard to find a especially at night. The racquet club is ok but doesn't have the ambiance of the Old Mill Room which is being remodeled. Food was quite good.

We have only lived here seven weeks and have been to Racquets 4 times. The outside dining with firepits is so nice and cozy and inside is really pleasant as well. The waitstaff is always polite and helpful and friendly!

Everything about this dinner was bad. The service was slow and somewhat irrational (our cold appetizer took 25 minutes but after it arrived they brought bread for the table). The food ranged from bad to indifferent. My fish was particularly bad - hard and over cooked yet fishy tasting. Desert was a rubbery cake with shavings of frosty ice cream.
I’ve read prior reviews and this experience sounds unusual. Perhaps they were overwhelmed because the main restaurant was closed - but isn’t that something management could have planned for?

The food was excellent from the dinner menu. Atmosphere/ambiance was more in line with a fast food/grill type business than a restaurant. Server was excellent and helpful.

My first visit to Boars Head in 30 years. Was surprised to find such an indifferent place. Moribund staff. Boring food. Surprising.

Although the service and ambiance were just good, the food was excellent. The waitstaff was attentive but not hovering, so it was a comfortable experience. We thought the food was so good, we ate there both nights of our visit, once dine in and a second night we did take out. Both meals (salads, sandwiches, and burgers) were excellent.

This restaurant is located in the sports club at Boars Head Resort..please don't let that deter you from enjoying a "special" dinner here. We celebrated our daughters graduation here. The food was wonderful. Accommodating to food intolerances...and the BEST service ever. Ovi went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy. We eat out quite a bit and the quality of the food, and fun drinks, was 5 star!

Not fine dining by any means but the food was good. The problem was they stopped serving breakfast at 11:00am on a Sunday. That’s quite silly.

Disappointed we were not notified that the dining room was closed for repairs etc. The grill was OK for snacks, quick food but not for the fancy sit-down meal we were looking forward to .
The staff was fine and the area beautiful, but when we made reservations we should have been notified of he change.

Good setting for a sports bar/restaurant; not too noisy vs normal for sports bar.
Food was delicious and service first class.
