We expected a Mother’s Day brunch but there were no breakfast type items in the buffet. Plenty of starches but no fruit either.

Servers were friendly but food was ok at best. We ordered a variety of entrees. It was obvious that the steaks sat in the warmer. Veggies were hot but fries were cold. Steak was overdone.

The macaroni and cheese was swimming in butter. The service was slow as it was very understaffed. We made reservations for the dining room but it was closed & we sat in the bar area. No hostess was on duty.
Drinks were good & sliders were great.

Food was great--although they were out of a few things. Service was good and wine/cocktail selection excellent. We were going to Les Miz and did have to let the server know that --it would have been good if he had asked. We really enjoyed the spinach artichoke dip and steak wrap that we asked to have with chicken instead. Everything was made to order so the kitchen was very accommodating. We got there at 5:45 so were in time for some nice happy hour prices as well.

I made reservations which weren’t even necessary. The food was terrible and very very overpriced. The server was good but they presented themselves sloppy. Not worth going unless u maybe just get a burger and fry.

View is lovely. Service was sporadic. My husband was served two plates that weren’t his order. I had my food 7-8 minutes before he did. Waitress kind of disappeared while we waited for our bill. Salad was average. Meatballs were delicious. Bread was not restaurant quality.

Prices were exorbitant, Service was extremely slow despite low attendance. Atmosphere was great but with dated decor. Good to go one time, no need to revisit. I know I won’t be revisiting. Don’t go on holidays as they increase price and have a restricted menu with no options.

Overpriced for poor quality food. The service was personable but clearly they can’t get or hold experienced wait staff. Will not be going back. Not worth the cost.

The steak was not worth $50.00. It was thin and small. The steak had poor flavor and not much meat after trimming the fat and grissle. View was nice. Pine club steak for $50.00 is much better.

We went for winter restaurant week. We had a reservation but I had to find someone to seat us. We sat for 20 minutes before I found someone to send us a server. He said they were super busy but the place wasn’t even half full. The food took forever! I had to ask about it twice. The cheese wasn’t melted on the Cuban sandwiches, the Creme Brûlée was ice cold and the bread pudding was hard and cold. Won’t go back.

Hi, Thank you so much for dining with us and sharing your experience. I want to apologize for not providing a better dining expeirence during restaurant week. We were indeed very busy this past week with a large group staying in the hotel and restaurant week going on however, that is inexcusable for the below average service you received. I will be sharing your feedback with our Executive Chef and restaurant staff so we can fix these issues. Sincerly, Kris Davis General Manager

Two of us went for restaurant week. The ribs were excellent. Cole slaw was really good, mac and cheese nothing special. Dessert was not great. I ordered bourbon bread pudding which was so hard I couldn't cut it with a fork. I sent it back for the creme brulee. It was cold and liquidy and not crunchy and browned on top. There was a weird orangy crust but I think they didn't use the burner to brown it. Service, however, was top notch, but there was hardly anyone there. The view was great. Also, it was a Monday and they had a pretty nice happy hour.
