We went with family and friends to watch our favorite band, CaerBannog play and have dinner. Our server Mandi was one of the best we have ever had while eating out. She made sure our drinks were replenished and our food was served in a timely manner. They have a really nice covered outside patio with fairy lights and big... More

We were driving back from Blue Springs State Park and stopped at the Genuine Bistro for lunch. We had a great lunch. My wife had the pulled pork quesadilla and she loved it. The pork was generous and tasty. My sister had the chicken and tomato flatbread and she said it was great also. My brother-in-law had the stacked Reuben... More

This was our second visit here, and our experiences both times were excellent. Last time my husband had tuna cooked very rare and sliced thinly. He loved it. This time I had the pulled pork quesadilla, which was the best one I have had, ever, and the best dinner I have had in a very long time. It was delicious!... More

She promised it would be right out. Waited another 45 minutes for desert. Manager never came out to apologize. Waitress blamed it on kitchen... More

Food is always wonderful whether lunch or dinner. I've also heard from several people the Sunday brunch is great. Everything is very fresh and gourmet without being overly done. The menu items are delish but the daily special items are spectacular. Sitting on the patio is surprisingly quiet being next to the road and the atmosphere is very calming at... More

This was recommended by our hotel desk clerk, which isn't always the best sign. However, we were very impressed. Portions were plentiful and well made. The burger on the kids meal would rival many official "burger joint" burgers. Dessert was just as good as the meal. In all, we were quite impressed.

Three of us went for lunch and we all were pleased. The ahi tuna appetizer was well cooked and generous portion. The nachos were very good even though we would have preferred them to be loaded and not have to add the ingredients to each chip. Ceasar salad well done and the beer was ice cold. Our waitress was attentive... More
