    I had dinner here, not long ago and the food was very good, minus one mishap with an appetizer. The oysters were fresh and tasty. However I was just there on a Sunday. While the oysters were very good, my appetizer at $18 consisted of a slice of bread, some deviled egg smeared thinly on it and a quarter cup of crabmeat. So 3 oysters, a meager appetizer, Bloody Mary and sparkling water came to $54, not including tip. Terrible value, watery Bloody Mary and terrible appetizer. Plenty of restaurants in CC, I won’t be back.

    Really enjoyed our dinner at Loch Bar. The food was very good — particularly the fried oysters and the seared scallops — and the service was very attentive. Highly recommended!

    Very nice ambience. Food was very tasty and well portioned. Service was poor at best. I would expect better from a restaurant charging $100 per person for dinner. My friend told the waitress about her aversion to anything creamy. She was assured her entree would not have any cream. Sure enough her salmon arrived with four dollops of cream. The waitress never came to check on us until we were almost done eating. Since we were going to a show after dinner and were pressed for time, we just switched entrees. When our waitress finally showed interest in us, we told her that we switched entrees since they did indeed put cream on the salmon. She apologized, but rolled her eyes as she walked away. The manager came over to check on us and we told him what happened. He apologized and asked what we wanted him to do. We were shocked by this response, so we left it alone. He was gracious enough to not charge us for our dessert, which was appreciated. Perhaps if our server had checked on us when our food came out instead of when we were done eating, the situation could have been rectified. Such a shame because I really wanted to like this place.

    Staff are friendly and helpful. Fairly large selection but everything is WAY overpriced. Don’t plan to go again

    Ordered fish and chips and fish was partially uncooked. Had a concert so we had to bag the dinner and take it home. Not a great experience. No compensation offered by manager when we noted this.
