Wonderful food and beautiful views. Much nicer than I had expected. I did feel the wine list was limited.

Both my spouse and I enjoyed our meals. The portion sizes were more than adequate. The chicken breast was extremely tender, moist and delicious. We sat at a table next to the wall of windows. The view was spectacular!

Food and service were excellent. There was live music of a quiet and professional sort. Could enjoy a given song or continue conversation for another.
Nice place and very handy to the hotel.

The beautiful view was the best thing about the meal. Our service was mediocre at best and for the money I'd expect more. We watched as bread was provided to other tables, our salads came out drenched in dressing. My filet was cooked to perfection, however my sweet potato was undercooked. My husband got the delmonico and mashed. The steak was passable the gravy on the mashed left a lot to be desired. It also appeared as though where the over 65 dine.

The restaurant (food, staff, and view) are wonderful. I would give it five stars across all five categories; however, it is get “dated.” It could use a freshening up and remodel very soon. The meal was great! The views were unbelievable. I lived approx. 30 mins away and never knew this gem was here growing up till I needed a place for our anniversary. Totally recommend this for a Friday or Saturday meal. Reservation are a must if you want a window seat with the great view.

It would have been nice to know the market price of the surf and turf. Was NOT expecting $95!!!! It was a great meal but way over priced. I blame myself for not asking what market price was - just would have been nice if the server told us instead of finding out when the bill arrived.

One small criticism: There are no identified vegetarian or vegan dishes on the menu. As a vegan, I was a little discouraged, but our server recommended the pasta primavera (not on the menu), which was filled with vegetables and garlic/olive oil sauce (aioli); it was excellent, with enough left over for three more meals. The chef very kindly fixed up some fruit for me for dessert, and my husband's and my dinner was very satisfactory. Thanks so much.

The Ambiance and Service were the best part of the Top of the 80's experience. They have a large menu selection, which was very nice. However, I found the food to be terribly overpriced in comparison to the quality of the Entrée. Top of the 80s is the only formal restaurant in the area and the owners clearly use this fact to over price the entrees. To illustrate my point, my waiter proudly announced the "Catch of the Day" is Tilapia! I was polite but inside I thought... are they kidding?! Tilapia of all things.... a relatively inexpensive, largely farm raised, muddy fish. Hardly the "catch of the day" and definitely not what I was expecting the waiter to say. I ordered chicken stuffed with lump crabmeat in a lemon caper sauce. I could tell the chicken was previous frozen and not necessarily fresh and stuffed meant lumped crabmeat sprinkled across the top of the chicken with lemon caper sauce on top. For a price tag of over $100 for two guest, I was disappointed. If you're leveraging the place to wine and dine clients, I say give it a go because the ambiance, service, and mountain views are worth the price tag. However, if you're in it for the taste, save your coins and go to Martin's or even Applebee. At least, you'll get what you paid for. Thanks, Honest Diner.
