    Great food for brunch/lunch!! Reasonably priced, great service! But the music was very loud for 11am and hard to talk, and A/C was on high - neither could be adjusted.

    We absolutely loved our visit to The Country Club. The happy hour menu was fabulous—a bonus because we didn’t think we would be there in time for the specials. The food was very good but the service was remarkable. Our server was Tim and he was one of the best we’ve had in many years. He was helpful and attentive. He went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful experience. We will be back the next time we are in town.

    We enjoyed our dinner and bar service from the bartenders. Everyone was friendly, cordial, engaging and provided outstanding service. The food was absolutely good, but our charred octopus dish barely had any octopus. The dish had potatoes mixed in there, actually camouflaged would be a better word for it cause we thought it was octopus until we had bites of it. It looked as if there were pieces of an octopus cause how it was presented in the dish, lol. Usually at other places they give you a good chunk of a tentacle. Needless to say, there should have been more octopus. But, it was really good and so was our shared lamb bolognese entree. Will definitely go back!

    As always a delish steak and outstanding cocktails with a side of people watching. Make your reservations later in the evening to avoid the line and dance your feet and dinner off to the best dance party in OC.

    Cena was an amazing server and Timothy went above and beyond when he helped walk my 98 year old dad arm and arm to the car. Topped it off by giving him knuckles as he made sure he was in safely. The respect and kindness of the two of them made our incredible evening top notch! Our food was delicious so kudos to the chef! My dad said it was the best fish he’s had in a long time!! thank you for a wonderful evening!

    Great experience as usual however the loud mouth next to us was happy to get “drunk guy louder “ & curse more with each drink. His friends were trying to keep quieter but even as the music got louder to drown out his F bombs he just got stupider. Staff pretended not to notice. Dont be a public drunk YO!

    Great to start, walked to the restaurant liking the ambiance. Sat in a booth inside, ordered a bottle of wine. Went to the restroom and returned to my table with the TV blaring. Cuss words beeped out every other word. Asked the server if they could turn it down and he said now, they were having a Vanderpump Rules night. So they decided to turn off the music, and swap if for raunchy reality TV while I spend $200 on a tab? Terrible. Moved outside where the volume level was more tolerable. Terrible idea, spoke with a few other patrons who arrived before the “event” and they two were confused and annoyed. Terrible idea, won’t be returning solely because of this reason. Ruined the evening. Who wants to here cussing and annoying people while you’re trying to enjoy a nice dinner? The volume level in doors was just insane.

    Experience was great. The outfits of the employees don’t really match with the excellent ambiance. Also, there was a male waiter physically assaulting a female waitress behind the restaurant. Not something you want to see on Mother’s Day. Seemed sketchy for sure, but will try again!

    First time here for our party of four, and what a treat in all regards. Our waiter, Sina did a great job with recommendations and service, our filet mignons and ribeye were cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The cauliflower and brussel sprout appetizers were delicious, and the Old Fashioneds were on point. Pricing was reasonable for such a fine and fun dining experience. Steakhouse quality with a more casual yet still classy atmosphere. All staff that we interacted with were attentive and friendly. Booth was just spacious enough for four without being cramped as some are.

    If you don’t call ahead to check or confirm what music or entertainment will be playing (regardless of what you see posted on Open Table or their website) then YOU’VE BEEN WARNED. I suppose on a slower night or had I done the same as I advised above 👆🏼- we may have enjoyed it. I had heard good things but, I didn’t and we went on a Thursday (she wanted to dance) well- LOL it basically was CLUB NITE! We were easily the oldest 2 in the place- and we’re both pretty young at heart at minimum! Average age was probably 21.5 years old and it looked like a scene from The Hills meets Jersey Shore! Gangs of girls following after gangs of boys as if they were all let out of school early. Anyway- the food all sounded good but, by 8:00 most everything was “no longer available” and by 8:30 we were informed that the kitchen would “close in 15/20 minutes”. I’ve eaten at enough fantastic places let alone new ones to know when you place an order after that message- it’s a potential deathknell. We had their fries and their sauces with a few rounds of drinks. The fries were good- and maybe would have been as good as billed but even they were likely sitting in the drip tray as a last batch. I suppose I’ll try it again but not without proper planning and doubling my research!

    I really enjoyed my first experience at The Country Club. I found it to be an old school restaurant that had a rustic charm to it. Most importantly, the food was excellent. We ordered a number of courses; beet salad, ahi cudo, broccolini, roasted mushrooms, bone-in filet and the bread pudding and every course was excellent and tasteful. The staff was responsive from the time we walked in the door until we left. I look forward to returning.

    We had an 8:30 reservation which we were on time for. We were told to go to the bar and wait. We get to our table at 8:55. Then we were FORCED to leave our table and finish our desert by 10pm. The Restaurant turns into a club which is fine. But why take an 8:30 reservation and FORCE us to rush if the Restaurant is not ready for our 8:30 time? The whole meal we felt VERY rushed and not at all fair.
