My wife and I enjoy the prime rib and roasted herb chicken which we share/split. Both are succulent. The staff is warm, friendly and knowledgable of the food (and surrounding area activities). We enjoy dining upstairs at the bar or next to the fireplace on a chilly evening.

This restaurant is great, our waiter Wesley was great he was very personable and the owner and manager was great and personable. we told him we just got married the day before, which we did, and he gave us a free dessert and charged us less for our meal we had the cheese appetizer which was great and the Prime rib which was to die for. the service was excellent the place was clean. we plan on going back there again.

Great food, great service. A little pricey, but the owner is there every time we have been there, he always checks with us about service and food, which has been great on each visit.

Most of the food was okay, but nowhere near the level one would expect for the prices - 9$ for a bowl of soup, really? The waiter talked one of our party into getting his steak medium instead of medium well saying that it would be just be pink, not bloody. This steak was rare at best, totally raw in the middle and the waiter didn't offer to do anything to fix the problem. We should have left when the waiter kept talking about how good the chef was that we were in trouble, at really good restaurants the food speaks for itself.

When this place was run by the previous owners, it was hit and miss, some things good, some bad.
After the takeover, we had high hopes of the new management who already run a successful Mexican Restaurant in Midway. Initially the host greeted you and the manager would check on you during your meal...well that didn't last. These days you are met with indifference at best and no manager is ever in site.
It would seem there have been several Chef's since it changed hands, as after giving it another try, several times we were told there were major changes in the kitchen, none of which have made any difference to the food. It was even rumored that a respected local Chef was advising them on their menu, but on our last and final visit, the menu and quality was the same.
Too add insult to injury, it's not a cheap place to eat, moderate pricing at best.
We gave it so many second chances, neither I or my family will ever visit this place again.
I really wish I could be more positive as Midway needs 'Bear Dance', the Galleria opposite is great for a Pizza, but with the clientele locally we need an 'evening' place to hang out. Sadly this falls way short.
