    the bbq was good.. the pecan encrusted perch was awful!! the salmon was requested rare and was cooked well done! need to have better quality for your fish dishes.. the AC was freezing and the background music was too loud and not necessary.. really disappointing as we like to go here for dinner... will stick to the bbq i guess.

    The restaurant was empty with the exception of 4 out of 10-12 tables with the better views overlooking the course. We had children w/us, who are very well behaved, but we were seated at the front of the restaurant, which was completely empty except for us. When I asked for a better table, I was told the 4 tables, of 2-4 golfers each, were too loud for us to be seated in that section. We received the minimum level of service, no view, and our food was just OK.

    Very nice place to eat I was just a little disappointed that they changed the menu and it’s a bit more casual with barbecue and hamburgers & some fish. Everyone liked their food (4 in our party) I personally wasn’t really happy with my whitefish sandwich though. I would recommend eating but would look at the menu first. We didn’t and were expecting last years menu. Waitress and staff were excellent and very friendly.

    I was disappointed that they didn't have a special menu for Easter Brunch, as the Bluffs course restaurant was booked solid. The menu was there usual lunch menu, and nothing very special.

    The 4 course set menu for New Years offered 3 choices for mains, I had the ribeye with mashed potatoes and green beans in a peppercorn sauce. Steak was cooked perfectly and was one of the best meals I had in 2022. I chose the Arcadian salad with Spinach, apples, walnuts and dried cranberries. Very nice. My small plate was the crab leg and crab cake. Crab leg was delicious but a little messy to eat, crab cake was ok, I thought it was a little too fishy tasting for me. Lava cake for dessert with ice cream was spectacular, although could have balanced it with more than just the small dab of ice cream. Overall a great New Years-meal experience!

    The food was amazing!!! The service could have been a lot better. There was a few times we had to remind the waited about our drinks. And the wait between courses was to long. Other tables didn’t have such a long wait in between courses as we did. Over all will come back. Hope to have a different waiter next time.

    Had a table of four overlooking the 18th green. The day was fit for Irish golf. "Twas a soft day but a bit brisk." (In Americanese, the phrase translates to 'gale force winds and horizontal rain.') So, a great view. The interior surroundings were welcoming, and the food excellent. Bren, our server, was friendly, knowledgeable, and discreet. Great experience

    I made reservations at The South Course for dinner and we were seated immediately. The manager took us to our table where we were waited on quickly. The drinks were delivered quite rapidly as were the appetizers. My shrimp cocktail was quite underwhelming with medium sized shrimp and a bland cocktail sauce. For our entree I had walleye which was quite tasty, but small for the $26.00 price. My wife had the meatloaf which was very dry and chewy. We will probably choose to not go back there often.
