It was a perfect day so we had a very pleasant meal outside. We ordered a small chicken nachos as an app, and they were delicious. I had the steak, my husband had the brisket sandwich, and we were both very happy with our meals....More

I have never been disappointed eating here for lunch. We made a return trip here in 2017. I ordered the fish and chips. My kids ordered mini corn dogs which they consumed quickly. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch again...More

At the base of the hill looking up to the Grand provides a nice menu alternative to the Grand's buffet luncheon. Food is your typical sandwich type menu but at a step up in quality.

We enjoyed our lunch here. I had the Reuben and it was excellent. My wife had the salad and soup and was very pleased as well. Service was fast and it was a great value for lunch

The gate house did a great job with our group of 12 plus! We ate there with my husbands sailing team. The whitefish was fantastic and so was the service with our large group.

Ate at the Gate House for lunch. We sat outside, we could see the Grand Hotel and the carriages going by on the street while we ate. Prime rib panini was excellent.

Had lunch at the Gate House after a morning bike ride. Standard American food with a refreshing drink menu. While lunch was not inexpensive, the portions were large enough to share. The Caesar salad comes with anchovies on top but the waitress was kind enough...More

The Whitefish Bisque was good, not exceptional. My wife enjoyed her drink and the Pretzel Sticks with her soup. My burger was tasty but for the price, expected a little more. It is off the typical path so a little quieter. I do like the...More
