    This restaurant was pretty good; but definitely not great. We visited on a Friday night, the staff was pleasant and knowledgable; but slow and missing for stretches - they were admittedly understaffed. The food was good, but not that special. My half chicken had crisp skin but it was under seasoned and the potatoes were bland and undercooked. The desserts were the best part of the meal.

    Food was fine but not great. Definitely priced well above the quality and service. We were never offered refills/second drinks, my soup was cold and the one item we all wanted to try the most - apple pie - was on the menu but they font make it. I would definitely not recommend and feel sad for hotel guests who have no other options on the campus.

    Every moment of our dinner was exceptional. The server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was spectacular with portion sizes just perfect for one. Its location is a bit out of the way but so worth the trip. We'll be back regularly.

    Locally sourced food, really good specialty cocktails. I had the braised ribs, the meal was fantastic. I also had the spicy blueberry margarita and it was really good! Beautiful place, it is higher end so it's a bit pricey.

    We dined on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was nearly empty. Our server was delightful, attentive but not intrusive. Our meals were excellent as was the recommendation for dessert. I think that people forget about this hidden gem of a restaurant. It shouldn’t be overlooked.

    Though it was cold outside, it took my until about dessert to feel warm enough to take off my coat. Second time eating there and I chose to wear jeans because I remember being cold the first time. Otherwise, staff and food is amazing!

    Four of us made a reservation at 1:30 New Year’s Eve. Once we were sat down, it took 25 minutes to have somebody come over and ask for our drink order. it took probably a good 30 minutes before we got our drinks. One person in our party, ordered a beverage and was brought probably a third of a glass and was told they were switching the keg out. The beverage was fairy nectar. Another 15 minutes goes by. Our waiter and the bartender came back with another portioned glass and said they were having problems with changing things out. He ended up ordering a completely different beverage. At that time we finally had our order taken. We had also ordered an appetizer. Please keep in mind. There was only one other table occupied. After our order was taken, it took about 45 minutes to get our main dishes. The appetizer was never even acknowledged. My spouse and I have been there a couple times before and never received this type of service. If I were to go back, I would definitely ask to be seated at the bar and not the restaurant side.

    Reservation for 8 on a Monday. Didn't except a full restaurant, but just in case. There were maybe 3 tables of 2 in addition to us. Drinks were great. Food was great. Service was so-so. I needed my steak cooked to medium, it was rare, and our waitress had disappeared. My plate sat in front of me for 30 minutes before we saw her again, giving us the bill. Not impressed. Place was a ghost town. Felt like she took her lunch after we got our food. Forgot things were had asked for (my friend waited 20 minutes for limes for her drink) and would have to go to kitchen the retrieve and make multiple trips. I don't think we will return because of service, unfortunately.

    Great place-love the atmosphere and the giant booth for our family. Service was a little slow with drinks and food. Food was not very warm but it was very tasty. Feel like the prices were high for mid level service and warmish food. Would come back though for atmosphere and to try more things.

    Ashley, our waitress was a gem. She was friendly and gave us superb service. The salmon was cooked to perfection, exactly how I requested. The fruit tray was fresh and delicious. We are visiting from Texas and being away from the coast, I didn’t expect the salmon to be as fresh and tasty as in Houston. Bravo Well & Good. Everything was well & good.
