    This was mine and my wife's first time visiting the restaurant. We made a reservation for 5:30 and was met by the manager at the entrance. The employees were smiling and happy to service us. We were seated at a table with a wonderful view of the lake. The waitress (Michelle) was very nice and helpful. After she took our order, she assisted us with the local area entertainment and even took a picture of us. I asked for a drink that was not on their menu and she had no problem making it for me. The whole staff treated us like we were the only ones in the restaurant. World class service with great food. We cannot wait to go back.

    I had Scallops with roasted acorn squash with carrots with a hazelnut cream sauce. Beautiful plate. Food was delicious. Only 3 scallops for $38. Probably normal price for this area. Location is beautiful, lakeside dining. Not easily handicap accessible.

    Had two meals, New Years Eve dinner, and New years day brunch. Brunch was 5-star! Terrific setting. 85-90% of food was also terrific. Our main server was 5-star. The others gazed around the room while delivering, bumped our table on numerous occasions and were generally not attentive or 5-star servers. However, the setting made up for most any annoyances or unprofessionalism. tenderloin with lobster/spinach Hollandaise= good, nothing amazing. scallop pastry was amazing. salad delish. Burger fantastic after we returned the first one for being over well done, when ordering a Med rare (it seems they sent us an old one sitting under a heat lamp-you know the one..) Anyway, the replacement was A1, the Benedict gets a 95, salad 90.. All mostly nice and well done. Did not feel it was worth the $340 with 2 glasses of wine. But again it was NYE and they had us trapped with the Prix Fix. All in all a 4.5 star.

    Chef went out of his way to create a special menu and each item was memorable. The star of the show was the beef tenderloin wrapped around lobster. Excellent! Service was friendly. Can’t wait to return.

    The restaurant at The Greystone is superb and is apparently linked to the adjacent hotel (which is not so superb). The food is of a good variety and well prepared; we ate there three evenings in a row and would return to do so. The staff is the highlight of the restaurant. Without them, the experience would not be so great

    First time dining at Greystone. We were celebrating a birthday with friends. The food was wonderful (short ribs, ceaser salad, and pork tenderloin were excellent). If you are trying to decide between the two, go with the short ribs. You won’t regret it. The only downside side was the serving portion (short ribs). Taste was out of this world and you were gobbled it down in no time and were left clamoring for more or hoping someone else would fill up quick so you could claim theirs. Adult beverage’s were really done nicely as well. Made it even nicer that they were all generous pours. 😁 The Super Tuscan (mild red wine) was gleefully engulfed our dear friend. The mulbac red wine went well with the short rib entree. We skipped desert but the choices looked delicious. Ambiance and the views were perfect. We definitely recommend visiting.

    My wife and I were celebrating her birthday and our 43rd anniversary.this was our first trip to the Greystone and we could not have been more pleased. Cheyanne was wonderful and made sure we enjoyed our meal. The food was excellent. The octopus appetizer was tender and exquisitely seasoned. My wife had the pork tenderloin and I had the scallops. Both were excellent! Cheyenne even provided a complimentary dessert to honor our special occasion.
