    Great Food! Exceptional Service! It was our first time in for brunch and the Breakfast Burrito was outstanding, the staff was very personable and easy to converse with, and you can’t beat the beautiful views overlooking the golf course! We are looking forward to coming back! :)

    My family and myself had a lovely experience dining here while staying on property! Everything was exceptional from the service to the food in the restaurant. They make a terrific old fashioned and the curds were to die for. We can’t wait to visit again in the summer!

    This was okay… willing to go back in the summer season when they are busier. The physical atmosphere of this restaurant is good, yet the workers atmosphere was ok. It looked like lots of off duty workers were hanging out at the bar taking shots and hanging out at the bar while we were eating.. and they were constantly going back in forth to and from the back staff room. The food itself was okay. Our server was amazing.. I wish I could remember her name but she went above and beyond and was a great server. Overall would give it a 3.5/10. Yet willing to see if it’s a different atmosphere in summer in their “ on” season.

    Great evening! I have eaten here many times and never disappointed. The chicken wings are tasty! My favorite are the Roasted Chickpea & Hen of the Woods tacos! They are amazing! Hubby got Chili Lime Marinated Alden Hills Chicken, which was delicious!

    We greatly appreciated having a low key place to go for NYE (especially as we had done a big dinner the night before). The food was pretty good, but nothing too special. The best dish was the chicken and mashed potatoes. Drinks were tasty. The service was top notch!! Enjoyed.

    The food, esp bar b q was very, very good. However, there was 1 person there as waiter, host and staff. 1 person had to cover many many tables. it was nearly impossible for him and some people had to wait 30 minutes for their food, Some people had to wait a long time just to be seated. One table had 11 people! I felt bad for the person who had to do everything. Although he was trying his best! It was ridiculous.

    Would not return. Service was worse than the food. Food was just ok. The cheese curds and cocktails were good - everything else was subpar. We had the prime rib that came with baked potatoes (not fully cooked). Waitress never asked if we wanted a second cocktail. She brought water with the check. Our bill for 2 people was $162.00!! Ridiculous and will never go back.

    We came in on a very slow night and we're one of three tables in the restaurant. Our food took an obnoxiously long time, our drinks sat empty, our waitress, Kim, rolled her eyes at us during payment. Food came out lukewarm. Not a good experience and will never be back!!

    Mentioned celebrating husband's 50th birthday in comments when making reservation, but was not acknowledged. Reservation made for 4:30 on a Friday night and was perfect time as there was only 1 other group of customers at that time. Have eaten there before & have had fantastic food, however, husband said the fish fry he had was horrible. Our 2 orders of salmon & 1 order of steak were perfect. I ordered a side of the "charred corn" but did not notice any char or smoke taste on it. Waiter's name was Cash. Still tipped 20% ($48), even though birthday was not acknowledged & drinks were not made "tall" when asked for.

    Server was sweet. Bar service was a bit pokey. Food was very good - shrimp tacos, prime rib and jalapeno cheddar cornbread. Be aware they have removed their full entrees from their menu but not the website so the offerings are appys, salads, sandwiches/handhelds and pizzas which was disappointing.

    The food was very good, however, it took almost an hour to receive it. Our waiter explained to us, after about 10 minutes that the kitchen was backed up, even though it was early on Saturday evening, that it would be 40 minutes to get the food. We never saw him again until he brought the food in about one hours.

    The sandwiches we ordered weren't good. It was basic "food service" food. The fires and mac n' cheese, could have come out of my freezer. The side salad was pretty good though. The service was good.
