3 of 4 entrees arrived together. Fourth took 5-10 minutes to arrive. Might be short staff like every other business right now. Otherwise a great experience and we will be back. Recommend!

The outside tent is excellent. On a chilly night, the heaters kept us very comfortable. Brendan made sure our food was delivered in a timely manner and our daughters loved the birthday trio dessert. As usual, our meals were delicious.

We’ve been here many times, a family favorite. This time wasn’t up to the same standards as we have enjoyed before and I hope they can get back there.

The prime rib was a little under seasoned for our taste. We had to add some salt to it. The creamed spinach was not very tasty - it had a very strong spice taste (maybe nutmeg?) & the mash potatoes was dry and grainy like in texture.

The staff were all very nice & friendly, but the service was very slow. They took awhile to serve our meal and for them the pick up our check.

Sundance serves traditional steakhouse fare. But, that said, they do what they do very well. The quality of the meat and its preparation are excellent. The service is friendly and attentive without smothering, And side dishes are nicely done. Cocktails and bar service are a specialty at Sundance. The wine list is ok.
I highly recommend Sundance.

We were originally seated outside but there was a party of 15 ppl that were extremely loud that we couldn't hear each other. Our server Chase was amazing and got us another table inside. Food was excellent. Our drinks were wonderful.

I came here for my birthday and had a reservation. We’re 30 minutes early and they were able to seat us 15 minutes before so that was nice. I had the petite cut and it was really good. Since it was my birthday they also gave us a mud cake for dessert. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed everything about Sundance! The crab cakes were great and one of the best clam chowders I’ve had in years! The prime rib with Sautéed shrimp was excellent…our server was wonderful and we left Sundance very satisfied! Will definitely return again!

When my Colorado friend visits me, we go straight from the plane to Sundance, our favorite restaurant.
The drinks are great and the prime rib perfect.
The food is absolutely amazing!
I love the men’s club beauty of the wood.

Their prime rib used to be the best there was. But the past few times, they've overcooked it to the point where it's dry. Please bring back the old recipe.

Definitely recommend making reservations. Our reservation was 4:30 and we checked in about 4:29 in which we were seated right away. Appetizers were amazing and definitely recommend the clam chowder! My boyfriend’s filet mignon was absolutely amazing. I got the New York cut which if you don’t mind tendón wouldn’t be an issue. I’m not the biggest fan, but I didn’t let that stop the overall meal. It was our anniversary and our waiter brought us an ice cream cake. We didn’t check it it was included in our bill, but it was a nice surprise that we didn’t even mind if it it was! Will definitely come again in the future

Sundance's reputation is founded on their prime rib, and we can confirm it is outstanding. Yet everything else we ordered was just as good.
