The prime rib was not as tender as it should have been and lacked seasoning. Gluten free bread was available and sides and salads were good. The haddock was good.

always heard great things about tailwater, our experience must have fallen on a full moon. not impressed by the food however the manager and waitress were very apologetic. deducted one meal and our drinks from the bill and offered us dessert in hopes we will return for a better experience.

We just love our overall stay at the Tailwater lodge. We had a great service at the restaurant for dinner, our server Hilary was extremely polite and had a wonderful smile and the food was very good but huge plates..... We also had breakfast at the restaurant which was also very good and the atmosphere was very pleasant. We stopped at the lodge on our way back home from Florida and we are definitively planning to do this as an annual last stop before going back home.

The tasting room was great before dinner. The place was packed which was nice to see. We had the prime rib and Mac and cheese which had nice sized shrimp and plenty of crab! The drink selection was adequate and overall it was a great experience.

Love the seating and atmosphere! It is like being at a log cabin lodge in the Adirondacks or Catskills!

Staff and servers superb—Hillary was very attentive to our party of 7 without being intrusive. Decor and ambiance was upscale yet comfortable. Liked the whole vibe. Downside for me was the creamed corn on thanksgiving. It was dried out, chunky and gross. Everything else was delicious.

Went for the first time with two couples of close friends. Had a great time. Very generous portions. Atmosphere, service, prices, drinks, appetizers, dinners, and desert were fantastic!

We have been to Tailwaters Restaurant quite often in the past. As usual, nothing was a disappointment. Service was great, food was awesome and the setting is just perfect and casual after a long day of fishing.
Thank you for maintaining the quality from the first day you opened the doors!!!!

Overall - great venue and delicious food. Would have liked the noise level to have been lower - a bit loud for conversation.

Tailwater is a gem! The menu was very interesting and well balanced. The food was great as was the wine list. Also picked up some great Steelhead fishing Intel from our environmental scientist waitress. Nice.
