I got stuck attending a dinner party for a co-worker's birthday at this place a few days ago and what a terrible experience it was. There is only one waitress for the whole place due to the fact the restaurant has a total of one car in the parking lot on a Saturday night. My entree was the worst, imitation crab cakes for $28 dollars plus tax. I asked the waitress to speak with the manager and the manager came over and rudely stated that's our version of crab cakes. She refused to take them back and return them to the kitchen stating that our policy no refunds. Everyone in our party had a horrible experience at this place which is extremely unclean and dead (only one other party of three in the whole place on a Saturday). I will never eat at this place again this restaurant gets and F-.

Definitely 5 star! If you are looking for fine dining, look no further. I had the extreme pleasure of dining at Vanderlyn's on New Year's Eve with my husband who is on a very restricted diet. Before finalizing our reservation, explaining the situation to Chef John, he prepared a special salmon dinner for him which was incredible to say the least. I believe this attests to the character and professionalism of this very talented and generous man who on a very busy night took the time and concern to accommodate our needs. I ordered the jumbo crab cakes which I must say are second to none. Absolutely the very best! Thank you Chef John, Sue, and staff for making this a special and memorable evening for us.
