Love the stuffed shrimp, with the artichoke dip. Food was cooked well with excellent service. We make a point to stop in every time we are in town.

Having lived in Amsterdam for many years, I would frequently have lunch or dinner here. I never truly appreciated how good this restaurant was until I moved out of state. I now make sure to visit every time I am back in the Amsterdam area. Went there tonight for Prime Rib. Hard to find a better one.

We have never had a bad meal at the Raindancer. It is pricey but you pay for what you get. The last time we went, I did have to ask if we had a waitress as we waited over ten minutes for someone to acknowledge us. But the meal made up for it and the waitress was great once we... More

The food is very good. The staff is friendly. The buffet is a nice dining feature. I had the chicken cordon Bleu and it was really good. My husband had the chicken parm and it was good as well. The atmosphere was nice. The place was clean. All in all, we had a good experience!

Four of us arrived for a late lunch and sat at the bar where we were greeted and ordered our meal which arrived promptly. We ordered some specials as well as off the menu. Everything arrived hot and was very good. A large portion for the price.

Visited with friends for lunch around Noon on a weekday. The fare ordered was good however the wait time for the food and the service provided by the server (cannot name because she did not give her name) was not up to the usual standard we have come to expect at Raindancer. The restaurant was not busy and the server... More

My party of 5 was seated in the far left upper corner of the restaurant. There we found mold on the poorly carpeted floor. The table was never cleaned before we were seated. It took 30 min for our waiter to take our orders, then we waited 40 min for the orders to arrive....they were brought at different times and... More

Arrived in the off-hours, 730 pm on a Thursday; so until the normal dinner crowd departed, service was minimal. Once people at other tables departed service became much better. Facility itself is kept cold in summer so bring a jacket. Salad and bread bar are excellent. We ordered the specials and the food portions were so large we had to... More

I went here on a Sunday I with my girlfriend, I had the open Ruben Sandwich and She had the NY Strip. Everything was delicious, including the appetizer (Teriyaki Buffalo wings). The Service was great, they didn't rush us out the door like other places. We were there for a few hours, deep in Conversation. A Special Thank You to... More
