We were fortunate, and seated down by the windows overlooking the grounds. That also had the advantage of being as far as possible from the band. The band was great, but sometimes between music and a crowded environment, it prevents table conversation, The food was amazing - something for everyone! My only complaint was the entrance to the main buffet bar. Some people came in from the large table with plates (to the left), while others entered from the two outside appetizer tables (to the right). Neither group of people entering was happy. The service was incredible. The server was super attentive, and we wanted for nothing.

The food here is always delicious! They always have the best fish specials. We always get the Hanoi shrimp. It’s our favorite appetizer. The noodle salad is delicious. The service is exceptional too. All of the staff there is wonderful, but Brittany is the absolute best! April is also wonderful. She is the manager and will accommodate any need you have. Make sure to get the crème brûlée. The chef always changes it up. We had butterscotch crème brûlée. It was amazing!

Always a great evening at the Dumbwaiter! We visit at least once per month, and any time we want a special date night, family night. Dependable kitchen, good portions, and several favorites on the menu, so it’s never boring.

An amazing experience. From the moment we walked in, we were excited. The feel of the restaurant, the ambiance, and the smells were fantastic. Once we got seated, our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. We ordered a lot of different things to try at the recommendation of our server. Everything was fantastic. The jumbo stuffed shrimp, the Caesar salad, the brussel sprouts, the scallops, and the ahi tuna. We then had some of the most amazing key lime pie and crème brûlée. We will be back.
