Delightful meal; delicious food. Sadly restaurant was almost empty. Yes, it’s most expensive restaurant on site, but not out of line for its food, service and location.

A very nice place to stay and a great restaurant and bakery. Ogelbay park is a must see with beautiful walking trails and a nice little zoo and museum.

The dining experience at the Ihlenfeld is always memorable. The views from this lovely dining area just add to the experience. Unique menu selections and a diverse beverage list.
