We have eaten here on two other occasions. Needless to say they haven't disappointed us. The food continues to be very good and staff was very attentive and pleasant. We shared a rueben that was more than enough for two. Great American fair!

Ate on the balcony and looked out over the town. Food was good. Waiter was rushed but really attentive. I could not have kept up like he did. At lunch they had live music. Was a good place to take a rest from all the shopping!

Awesome view, lots of seating. Husband and I both enjoyed our food. I got the blue cheese burger and it was delicious. Loved the food, the view and the seating. Service was a little slow, and employees there didn't seem very enthused or friendly. Food will for sure bring me back to eat there again.

The portions were huge and the food was good too. We had a variety of sandwiches and smoked pork chops and soups. We enjoyed it all and the view was fun...especially if you like people watching...even at New Years time there are folks to watch on the street.

Sitting with your family and enjoying watching all the travelers walking below you is a spectacular feeling. Plus, you could hear some of the street musicians below. The burgers this past year were not quite up to par. Some of the flavor was missing. Maybe it was new management.

Excellent views of downtown, good food, priced right, good service and clean. Cobb salad was good as was the ribs. The stuffed shrimp was good also.

The food at the Balcony Bar and Restaurant in the Basin Park Hotel has really gone down hill over the past few years. We use to stop here about 3 times a year. This was one of my favorites in the past. They had received several awards in the past, but we noticed just over a year ago that the... More

We stayed in at the Basin so it was very convenient and the balcony was great because we could here the music from the park below. We had great service and the food and drinks were very good.

We stopped at the Balcony Bar and Restaurant for an early dinner and were seated on the outside balcony. It had been raining earlier in the day and was a little chilly, so the restaurant had the overhead heaters running which actually made it a little too warm. Although the rain had stopped, plastic panels still covered the balcony opening,... More

The staff really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Also get a seat overlooking the street. You'll also be entertained by the occasional sparrow dropping in looking for a hand out.
