    This place was all fluff and so over priced. The food was either over seasoned or way under seasoned. We would not go back or recommend this place. There are several other restaurants in town that were so much better. Don't waste your money.

    We are locals and the Switchback Grille is our favorite place to dine for special occasions like our anniversary. Our server, Amber, was great. Our meal was outstanding - we started with wine and the crab cake appetizer, split a Caesar salad and the House Filet and roasted potatoes. We took home a piece of carrot cake, which we ate the next day. Very nice evening!

    Disappointing at best. Other reviews hinted at problems, but We were hopeful and really wanted to enjoy our dinner : steakhouse serving Prime beef. But when a $78 steak is poorly prepared it’s hard to get past. The fish entry had zero flavor. The dessert was stale. The table adjacent to us was served a top wine with dirty glasses. Another had their order incorrect and then waited another 20 minutes for a DoOver. And the staff while nice people kept apologizing like that was their job instead of getting things correct from The beginning.

    This place is very mismanaged, and for the price that is a huge deal. We were there a good 29 minutes before anyone even got our drink order. Then they brought out the wrong food, and when they did get our food it was incorrect and over cooked. Again, these things can normally be over looked but for a $500 meal for 4 people, that is unacceptable! The manager never came out to apologize for all the mess our experience was and when we asked to speak to her she was rude and unbelievably sarcastic! This place is a 2 star restaurant with 5 star prices. Best to find another place!!

    Food was very expensive. I had a beet salad that had small pieces of yellow and red beets surrounding a pile of arugula. No nuts, no goat or feta cheese. $27. When we got the bill for our party of two, a 22% gratuity had been already added! Then did this become a thing?! I won’t go back to this restaurant.

    The food was delicious. The ambience was pleasant. And the service was amazing. Lilette was caring, helpful, and on top of our situation. When a food choice we selected was not available, she apologized and took the time to explain the reasons why. We felt pampered and our needs and desires adequately addressed.

    Was looking forward to a birthday dinner at this restaurant. I ordered the mahi-mahi it was overcooked. There was absolutely no presentation on the plate. It was mediocre for the price of the meal. My husband ordered the meatloaf. It was a little bit bland. It was my birthday And the restaurant still charged $15 for a slice of cheesecake. Disappointed, the restaurant was not busy and the server only came back very few times to check on us.

    Good: our server and the Caesar salad. Bad: Everything else. Besides wildly expensive steaks ($55 for smallest) they charge for any sauce and charge $12 for any sides. My husbands salmon was way overcooked and the potatoes had obviously been sitting out for a while. I don’t understand why a restaurant who charges this much doesn’t do a better job of properly preparing dishes. It’s not that hard. We had a much better dinner at Oscar’s for half the price (at least).
