We stopped in since we were staying at the hotel prior to Thanksgiving. The ambiance was comfortable and the food was delicious. I had the pork chops and a Chardonnay and it was delicious; my wife had the filet and a Cabernet and it was quality. They got busy so service could have been better, but that wasn't a big... More

Was impressed by the atmosphere. The server was really attentive and helpful. I ordered the halibut. The best part of the meal was our app which were crab cakes. Really good. The salad was great as well. However the halibut was over done and really dry. Pretty expensive for dry fish.

From the appetizers (asparagus), salad, bread basket (unique breads and butters), to the meals this restaurant is 1st Class! We've eaten at all the restaurants on site... More

Excellent food and wait staff. The surroundings are also quite nice. The place is a bit on the spendy side.

A great evening in a great restaurant. Our waitress was Angela who was fantastic. She was personable, professional and dedicated to providing us with the highest quality service. The dinner started off with a basket of specialty breads and flavored butters. Our salad with the house dressing was exceptional. My wife had a filet and I had the walleye. Both... More

Ate here with friends. Was a little skeptical, because we could see empty tables, yet they made us wait 10 minutes before seating us. However the service, and food made up for the wait!! Steaks cooked just as you expect them. Fish not overdone. Appetizer was excellent and creative. Wine suggestion was spot on. Server was exceptional, and really made... More

We love this restaurant. The food is great! You can wait a very long time though. It is also very expensive so be prepared to pay for a good meal.
