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

Some said "very good"... Others were just "satisfied". From my perspective, steak was over cooked and tough. Salad bar had a lot to choose from, but nothing seemed like it was made fresh, rather "scooped out of a bucket". Early bird special had a lot to choose from and the prices were VERY reasonable. Those that ordered the lobster were... More

We celebrated my parents 68 anniversary and the meal was fantastic. They were very accommodating, giving us almost a private room to due hearing problems in large noisy spaces. Our server was outstanding, she accidentally gave my dessert to my son at the end, but we fixed that. She took pictures for us with our cameras, was very attentive to... More
