The steak was very good, but you can get a good steak anywhere for a lot less. You come to this place for the ambiance and special experience. It had been many years since we had been and when we saw a Groupon, we thought it would be a good place to celebrate a special occasion. We made reservations, drove... More

The food is great but the wait ruins it all. The service is beyond slow, the slowest I have ever experienced at any establishment. Nearly 30 minutes from the time a drink was ordered to when it was brought out. Over an hour and a half from when the meal was ordered to when it was brought out. The staff... More

Beautiful setting on the lake - the bread, salad and entree were all perfection. The staff, from the minute you walk in the door, are superb. The decor is a bit tired. We'd recommend subtle lighting; at the very least, dim the current lights. Simply removing the tired carpet and replacing it with hard wood would update the interior nicely.... More

Rarly ever came except to drop food off at table .. and didn't get food right ... and when I asked if she could bring some butter... More

Normally g&g is very good. We normally visit on a Friday or Saturday night when reg help is there. This time met friends. We shared apps. And soup and I ordered the salmon. It was way overdone(charred) and had been seasoned heavily with salt. Too burned and too much salt. Wud have mentioned to our waitress but she didn't come... More

We went out to this place with the colleagues. I tried local KC beer and few appetizers. It was good. What I really enjoyed was the lake view and people riding a boat and catching fish.

We have dined at Marina Grog and Galley numerous times and have always enjoyed. From a date night for two, a small family celebration, to a group dinner in the private dining room, the Marina can make the visit special. Reservations are preferred. Indoor and dockside dining provide lovely lake views. A cozy bar and inside dining have views of... More

We celebrated our 47 th anniversary at the Marina Saturday night. It is, in our opinion, the best restaurant in town. We go there every year for special occasions. They have wonderful seafood, steaks and more. We love the tables by the windows to get the best views of the lake. After dinner it is fun to sit outside and... More

This was our first visit to this lakeside restaurant but it won't be our last! We made a reservation stating that there were four of us plus a baby. Our table was ready when we arrived, complete with a high chair right next to the aquarium. We had hoped for a lakeside table but the booth we were given turned... More
