    The shrimp and grits starter and the Spring Mountain Chicken dish with smashed potatoes and green beans were delicious. Unfortunately, my husband ordered the fried catfish and it was absolutely dreadful. Our server was a lovely young lady, very attentive but not intrusive. We will definitely try Wellington's again. The bartender makes a mean gin martini!

    Not very busy yet everything took a while to come out of the kitchen. Not as Delicious as fine dining could be - better filets as different chain restaurants. Great cheesecake, cold rolls. Server was normal

    We chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary based on the countless Gluten Free options due to a severe allergy noted on the website and menu. I was excited to celebrate over dinner; however after inquiring our server about the Gluten Free items on the menu we were expecting to try - I was saddened to learn the items are not Gluten Free and they are cross-contaminated as they are fried in fryers with other Gluten Containing foods.

    It was very convenient to have a great restaurant in the hotel . We enjoyed our meal at Wellington’s. The atmosphere was very relaxing and we enjoyed watching the flaming desserts being made at the tables. We also ate breakfast there- it was a little more expensive than chain restaurants- but we got a huge breakfast plate and it was very tasty.

    I made a reservation for two. A special occasion catching up with an old friend. I asked for a table where we could chat. We were sat next to the kitchen and ignored for 30 minutes. The wait staff looked at us as they walked by…but not one person stopped to say hello. When I finally got the attention of the Hostess, who begrudgingly moved us to a different table. This was 50 minutes after our reservation time. By the time our waitress was told she had another table, she wasn’t happy, but took it in stride and did the best she could being over sat. We had good service from that point on, but I doubt if I will make a point of visiting Wellingtons again.

    Crispy salmon, mashed potatoes, and fried Brussel sprouts were excellent - highly recommend! The service was a little slow to get started at 5 pm - waitress didn’t come to my table until after I had been seated there at least 5 minutes.

    The food was just ok, nothing to write home about. I had the beef tips and they were lacking flavor. The green beans weren’t very good and the smashed potatoes could have used some seasoning as well. We had the Wellingtons Sundae for dessert and I’m pretty sure the ice cream was freezer burnt vanilla with very little of the sauces. We did enjoy the fried green tomatoes, though.

    I ordered 4oz filet w/fries $27. Steak over cooked and barely warm when served, fries advertised as "hand cut fries?", tasty. Waitress left food under warming lights on counter several minutes while waiting on group of six ordering drinks, got their drinks from bar while our food was sitting on counter. We also, ordered Salmon which was very good.

    Our experience for breakfast at Wellington’s Restaurant was tainted due to the very poor service we received from our waitress. When we were seated at our table, she didn’t greet us but instead proceeded to inform us that they closed at 11:00. Our reservation was at 10:30 so this didn’t make logical sense for us to have to be finished eating in 30 minutes. She was aggravated when we asked to have a few minutes to look over the menu and once we did receive our food we didn’t see us again.

    We've stayed at the Carnegie Hotel on many occasions and Wellingtons bar and the restaurant never disappoint. After a long day on the road either by car or motorcycle it is great to get an ice cold martini and the food is always well prepared. I'm a french fry snob and theirs are perfect and even better with the duck fat aioli. The filet mignon 4oz is small but prepared perfectly at medium rare, but after the crisp caesar salad and the yummy deviled eggs its a perfect size. The haricot vert were crisp tender as they should be. The only thing we didn't love was the cabernet sauce, it was too sweet for us. The wait staff was very kind and attentive. We will be back next time we are in the area.

    This is, by far, the best steak house we've had. Having just moved here from Vegas it's been hard to find that "place" again. Great drinks, fantastic menu and appetizer options. It's perfect for date night or just drinks and dinner with friends! We had the deconstructed wellington, baked brie, catfish nuggets, New York strip and the filet. Even the salad was delicious, super fresh and not overcrowded with giant lettuce pieces. We've been a few times before and can't wait to go again! The only thing that would make this place even better is opening up the hours a little more.

    Lovely, cozy, relaxing. Dinner was prepared very well and delicious aside from what tasted like stale grocery store rolls. Salmon and Chicken dishes were excellent! Found out it was a local roaster. Breakfast was delicious and the coffee was the best! (Local roaster-Old Goat).
