    Overall very good-excellent. Only two issues as I felt the menu was a bit short on selection and lack of opportunity to sub items, especially on specials. Drink pours very generous and prices fair. Extremely pleased with our last two experiences. Will definitely return when in the area again.

    Chandler, Misty, and everyone always make my homecoming special! Always love the banter and drinks! Thank you Brooke for taking care of us at the end! You guys are awesome! Chefs knocked it out with the food! Could not stop eating the ribeye and au gratin even though I should have... LOL. Joanne says shrimp absolutely perfectly cooked. Thanks Kat for keeping the wine list fresh and tasty! Cheers!

    The dinner last night was superb! Food was prepared wonderfully and presented very nicely! I definitely want to come back! I was hoping there were still openings for my husband and I to have Thanksgiving dinner there, but couldn't find an open table for our time choice or even close to that time!

    Our date night could not have been better. We opted for the restaurant week special…..a little more expensive than past restaurant week specials but still worth it. The Beef tenderloin was exquisite….cooked to perfection ans as tender a steak as I’ve ever tasted. The mahi was equally delicious. Caeser salads were fresh and chilled; the desserts were also. Our server(RaymondI believe) was superb.

    Second visit this time we made reservations in the Tavern area. It was very nice great atmosphere and experience. Our server, Erica, was wonderful, very attentive and had an awesome personality. We went for our anniversary, had no idea it was restaurant week, glad it was! We had an awesome meal at a really great price! Overall this was a definite “10” dining experience. I can’t forget to mention that the wine was great as well as the champagne to toast our anniversary.

    Food was overall good, but meals were cold upon arrival to the table. Excellent flavor, meat was tender, sides were well balanced, only complaint was that it was cold. Our server was attentive, but we could tell she was very new. It has been a long time since our last visit, but we feel that the overall quality has slipped. We were celebrating our anniversary, and it was a little bit of a let down.

    It is always a pleasure to go here/ We were seated outside and weather was beautiful. the food was great, it was restaurant week (I didn't even know it) so we choose the specials, I choose fish first then was told the Elk was a great deal for 40 bucks so I had that ..again. It was super delicious as always, the whole meal was excellent. the bill shocked me only because it was a 20 surcharge on the elk, plus prices had gone up on everything else/ Still a great meal but over 200 bucks.

    Our birthday celebration for our daughter was flawless and everything was perfect; the only downside was that we were seated upstairs where a party of about 30 people was fairly noisy and energetic and even though our table was in a corner, it was difficult at times for the 3 of us to hear each other. This was not the restaurants fault and my 5-stars still stand.

    Service by the wait staff was amateurish, obviously inexperienced and un or under trained. Wrong wine served at first. No drink order initially, Only half of the food served was good, half of it unacceptable and probably should have been sent back. Overall, the product and service have degraded considerably over the past years. Everything (carpet and chairs, etc.) appears worn and old. The food cost was commensurate with the product; certainly no better than say Applebee's and certainly no longer a place to be for any special occasion.
