The lounge level with the walk about is more appealing than the dining room. The view from the dining level is spectacular!

Service was extremely slow. Took about 45 minutes to get our order taken and 1.5 hours to get our food. Steak was very chewy and pork cutlet was overdone and dry.

The stir fried food and the buttered chicken tasted premade. It was ok but not outstanding like some of the meals I’ve had. Next I would order something that wasn’t premade and made up fresh.

Food was ok, kinda small portions for the price. Our server was awful though. She came by the table a total of 3 times the entire time and wasn’t very kind. Acted like she was so much better then us and had better things to do then serve us.

Great meal, well priced, wonderful service and the only complaint was a few issues with social distancing for other patrons. The tables were too close and hands free access to the restrooms could have been improved.

The appy was quite good, the Caesar salad was very tired. There was more than half an hour wait between the salad and the main course!! The brocolli looked like it had been under a heat lamp for half an hour, the carrots were extremely undercooked and potatoes very plain.

4 of us went here to celebrate a birthday. It was very crowded and no possible way to social distance at a time when this is not only recommended by AHS but necessary. I had jagersnizchle which was tough and the meat actually dried out in places. My sister had steak that was extremely tough. Our husbands both had salmon that was good. Abundance of food and service was good.

Food and service was great, however half way through our meal a couple were sat next to us not more than half a meter away, which is in violation of current public health orders. That made our party very uncomfortable. Although our server was great, other staff were wearing masks below their nose, or under their chin. I appreciate they are running at half capacity but a condition of being able to open is to follow public health orders.
