My wife and I ate here while on vacation. I wanted the walleye dinner, but they were out. The fish that was substituted was great. A european fish that I can't remember the name. My wife had the steak with cream pasta. Very delicious, and flavorful. The steak pieces very tender. Service was top notch. We will make this eatery... More

My husband and I had a nice visit with Nathaniel, the dining room manager on 4/6/17. He was very welcoming to us coming into a quiet bar later in the evening and allowed us to enjoy ourselves without feeling like we needed to leave so they could close. As a person who works in hospitality, I understand both sides of... More

the steaks are excellent and the service even better. The Hunter's Ribeye is above and beyond expectations. Tell them to leave the juice/gravy off and you will enjoy it more. The house salad is just so tasty and plenty of it. Served in this giant bowl of all kinds of vegetable. The server we had was an ex-huterite and she... More

Stopped in to spend a gift card. We each had steaks. Mine was too small for the value. I got the 8 oz. Top Sirloin for $20. Just wasn't worth it. My girlfriend got the hunters ribeye with a lovely sauce. It was excellent. Drinks, bread, service, salad were all top notch. Great ambience by the fireplace made for the... More

The location, attached to hotel made it worth the trying. The service was pretty good, but the food was not nearly as good as what I was expecting. Started off with a good salad, but main course was like dried out and only warm. Would probably not go back

This restaurant is attached to a hotel and at first seems a little nondescript. However, it has a really nice ambience, and the food is very good, along with the fresh baked bread.I would highly recommend the Steak Gorgonzola Penne - it was great!
