    Made a reservation 3 months in advance. Arrived on time for a table @ 6:30 and waiting 40 minutes to be seated. Enough said.

    Try the Sundreams Farm mushroom items, especially the Sundream mushroom soup, it’s thick like a chowder.

    Great server. Very patient. Kind team. Food very good. Only pain point was that it is pricy but I get it. Example- Shirley temple is the same cost as a beer. $8.00. Side of fries $7.00. Onion Soup $15.00.

    We had great food and great service from Justin, James and Ashley. The food and drinks were excellent. It's a little pricey but if you are celebrating a special occasion it's worth it. It's a fun spot.

    Loved the Tavern but our server rushed our orders and they carded my 21 ++ daughters (22 and 26 years old) two times. Not sure why but it was embarrassing. I fully support the ID checks however they were with me, their 54 year young mom and wasn’t like we had previous cocktails and came stumbling in. Otherwise we will come back.

    My husband's and daughter's sandwich and fries were very good. His side salad was ok, but there wasn't much to it. My main course salad was very tasty but small for the price.

    Good food, good drinks, slightly overpriced but that's to be expected at a resort. Host stand isn't well attended and when you arrive you may wait a while before being helped. We ate there two times during our stay and it took us 10 minutes to even be seen at the host stand both times. Everything else was excellent, but if I had to change anything, it would be a better greeting system upon arrival, and make sure there is someone there at all times. When I am paying a premium for the resort service, it's frustrating to not receive the premium level of service.

    Very nice people which unfortunately can’t compensate for extremely slow service , overpriced & small dishes. Guests at the hotel have limited choices. That’s a shame. The atmosphere and design are very nice.

    My chicken wings were delicious and moist with a good portion of celery/carrots. However, my husband thought the Reuben sandwich was not tender and skimpy for the price. The ambiance and the service was great.

    Food was really good and service was great. A little bit limited on choices for menu- wish there was more of a dinner selection for entrees. The worst part was that our reservation was for 7:30 and they did not seat us until 8:00. That was very annoying.

    I've always loved the relaxed feel of this place – while looking outside at the tree lined landscape during the fall season. Just simply breath taking and pure relaxation. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The mushroom soup was amazing and the Clams with pork belly was delicious and refreshing, especially on a cool autumn day. Service was well-timed, exceptional, and friendly.

    Second time there and both times placed at drafty and unpleasant table locations. Food was mediocre and over-buttered and over-priced. The place has a nice flavor but only if seated at one of the few available "nice locations". Waiters are always outstanding.

    We had 3 dinners on consecutive nights at the Frontier Tavern, and the service and food were awesome. Excellent waitstaff, great food, and comfortable ambiance. Highlights were the excellent mushroom soup-full flavored and not overly creamy, Caesar salad, and sautéed mushroom topped burger. Oh, and our table shared the delicious Apple Brown Betty dessert. 3 great meals!
