    I was surprised on tip charge of 22% for just 1 couple. We only wanted to eat dinner and was charged for the downstairs party which we didn’t go too.

    Empty restaurant, sat us at remote table in corner. Server got order wrong, took 20 minutes to get entree that had been left out. No apologies, no compensation, no concern at all. We live full time at the lake and frequent local establishment often. Unfortunately, the Encore is on our bottom of the list.

    Beautiful venue for having Thanksgiving lunch. The buffet offered everything anyone could desire. Our waitress was great, kept our table free of empty plates and our glasses full of cocktails and water. Glad that we chose to go this way, saved me a lot of time in food prep!!!

    Thanksgiving tradition we have started here and hope to continue! Food is excellent. Service is hit or miss but overall it’s a great time. You can tell the owners have put some real thought and hard work into this place! We really enjoy coming here! Thanks so much for giving a great place to be on Thanksgiving and all year round at the lake!

    I had never been there, and was glad all the other businesses that were offering Thanksgiving dinner were full on reservations. The food was great met the owners, and they were great down to earth people. I will be going back and would recommend it to anyone that’s looking for a country type atmosphere

    This place came highly recommended by people and we could see why! Food was great, portions were huge for the burger and sandwich we got with fries. Draft beer selection could be a lot better, very limited and little craft options. We came for the live music and that was great as well. Happy hour specials were not advertised either and our waitress seemed reluctant to tell us about them.

    They acknowledged my reservation but didn't have a table for us. We were a group of 3 and they had a table for 6 but wouldn't seat us there. Fortunately, another group of 3 had the exact same scenario and overheard us so we shared the table for 6. They brought out the food but mine wasn't there. Everyone else was done eating by the time I got mine. The food was OK but nothing to brag about and definitely over priced.

    1. The specials board hadn’t been updated from the previous day. 2. The lighting was so dim we couldn’t read our menus. 3. Our waitress brought water but didn’t ask if we’d like a drink. 4. We had to ask for bread. 5. My fish dish was so hot I couldn’t eat it. By the time I could, my potatoes were cold. 6. The Prime Rib was cooked well but not a great cut of meat for $44.

    We were seated immediately. All employees were friendly and efficient. Bottle prices for wine were very reasonable. Food was good, not great. Our attendant, Chase, was very good. Knowledgeable, attentive friendly. The food server was great as was the house manager. Overall a good place for dinner.

    I had never been here before and we were unable to get in some other places we usually try when coming to this side of the lake. We had a part of 8 with Reservation for 5:30. Showed up about 20 minutes early and we got seated, which was nice. Encore has a nice Vibe. Our waitress was a little quiet. She forgot to tell us about evening specials until after we ordered. But, she was sweet (I forget her name) and did a pretty good job. I really liked the ability to order sandwiches, etc. if you didn't want a big entree. Wide variety on the menu. And the food was above average. Good job. Will definately be back.

    This was truly a horrible experience. They were extremely busy and we definitely were patient based on that, but it was so bad we left and ate somewhere else. We were served premium priced cocktails in plastic cups. Waited for 15 minutes to even be greeted once seated. Waited another 20 for water and another 20 before the drinks came. Mentioned to the waiter and manager that it was not a good experience. Waiter was sympathetic however the manager was completely unaffected. Borderline rude. I predict this restaurant under this management never turns the corner.

    Bottom line- Service killed the night. There was plenty of staff. We had a reservation for a twelve top and the restaurant knew we were to attend their onsite concert afterwards. The server started off well- pleasant- then took a long while to bring drinks and the wrong wine. She corrected this but was flustered and virtually absent from then on. Food came in waves brought by runners who had no idea what was on the plates ( which fish etc) and no idea who got which order. One of our guests waited 20 min for his dinner. My wife ordered a dinner salad and was initially brought a small side salad. (Overall the food was fairly good and like everywhere at the lake - pricey) I asked for the manager - Wes- who did what he could to remedy the issues but by then the experience had been pathetic. We were offered free deserts. I passed but accepted seating outside at the concert and a $50 gift card ( covered three drinks). Tip 22% forced on each ticket! What an insult- the server made nearly $150 in 90 minutes on our table alone and did nothing to give us a good experience.

    Food was good. However, there was a birthday party going on across from us which was very loud. Maybe have a room dedicated for that. Besides that all was good. Would recommend and come back again.

    Cajun Pasta was excellent, not so much for the Salmon Plank. Salmon fillet was sized for the price but the dish had no flavor. Seasoning very bland. We would not order that again. Seared tuna appetizer was excellent.

    We booked a table at this restaurant during the advertised hours of dueling piano, and after a phone call to confirm there would be dueling pianos inside. We were at dinner for 2.5 hours and there was never any dueling pianos. When we asked our server, they were unaware if there would be any music. Our drinks (6) took over 20 minutes to get and a few were wrong even after ordered directly from the drink menu. Server never checked in on us again for more drinks or refill water until our meals were gone, 1.5 hours later. We ordered another round of drinks, and only received 2 of the drinks. Food items were incorrect and partial meals were missing. Because the server did not bring the drinks or food themselves, there was poor communication to get anything other than the incorrect orders provided. When time to pay, the payments were messed up and the wrong cards were charged for differing amounts and one card was misplaced by the restaurant during this time. It required a return and a re process of the items. The server was newer and apologized but we had already had a tainted dining experience prior to an apology. The food was great, but will definitely not be returning due to severe lack of service.

    Good evening, We got the chance to eat in the restaurant today. It was our first experience at the Encore. The establishment was great. Very clean, and we loved the decore. We did have issues with our server, however. She did not bring water after being asked twice. Multiple of the drinks orders were incorrect. The table near us that arrived much later after we did, got their food before we did. Other than the chicken salad arriving without chicken, the food was great! Then our waitress disappeared for a very long period of time where we were left without drinks or any service. We had plans for everyone to order the ooey gooey butter cake. It was actually the reason we came but decided we did want to add another hour to our stay. Sorry to complain, but we have plans to come down next weekend and wanted to let you know. As you know, service at the lake is everything.

    Easy to reserve a table on Open Table. First time having the salmon and it was ok but not my favorite. Love their apple salad dressing. Main complaint was charged for 2 glasses of wine and I had 1 and a credit card convenience charge but we paid in cash. Have found you have to watch your ticket at all the restaurants. Over charge for drinks and add the cc charge when you pay cash. I’m sure we will be back but will double check bill.

    Encore is a hidden gem that I don’t think enough people know about!!! The place is huge & is music based. They had an acoustic singer on stage while we played corn hole. The spinach & artichoke dip with the Naan was amazing! They loved the corn dogs & pizza as well. I had the pina colada chicken, which was so different & delicious. I had the bread pudding for dessert, it was more like monkey bread but still tasted good. They gave my dad a free ooey gooey brownie & ice cream for dessert that we all tried. They had an Industry pool party but sadly it was empty. I think maybe on a different night it would be better! I say live, love, lake…xoxo
