We visit here every summer during our vacation. The food has defiantly improved. The server was knowledgable of the food and the manager came over a few times to check on us. He explained there is a new chef and it was obvious. We went back a second time this week and the manager even remembered us. Very nice and... More

Santa Fe is under new management. We stopped going before because the food was mediocre at best and the prices were high. Now the food is awful and the prices are high and they ice the cake with incredibly slow service. We ordered a Quesadilla and Nachos for appetizers. The quesadilla was okay. The nachos were chip fragments dumped from... More

Horrible! So bad that the next morning we are still talking about how bad it was. Old hard rice. Flat beer that had to be sent back. Bland burritos. Tasteless ribs. Go elsewhere.

REopened on May 30. Service was average. RIbs were pretty good. Fundamental food, but nothing to knock your socks off.

Hostess was rather rude when I went in to place my order for dinner- to take back to the hotel. "You gotta go to the bar for that"! Well, alright! that's what I did. The bartender was very nice- complete opposite of the hostess. Restaurant was in the middle of a menu change so some items were not in stock.... More

The food was really tasty and there was plenty of it! The waiter was very friendly. The only down side was they had just gotten a new menu that day and none of the waitstaff knew what was on it. They handled it well and that made our visit all the more enjoyable.

Stopped by for a late dinner. The room is amazing first and foremost. Great ambiance. Everything clean and well put together. A nice big menu with plenty to chose from for all types of palettes. The food was the highlight. Totally fresh ingredients in everything from the salsa to the veggies. Full bar. Lots of specialty drinks. Will certainly return.

We took the family out for Father's day dinner Friday night, what a disappointment. Not the same place it has been for years, the menu has changed since our last visit - much more limited choices and way over priced for the quantity and quality we received. The food was poor and the service was extremely slow. We were not... More

Been going there for many years with old friends. Used to be good. Now if at best mediocre, stop using frozen food and make it fresh

Sfg has re-opened. New menu -- excellent service -- great atmosphere. This restaurant is the best at Deep Creek. My only suggestion -- bring back some of the old menu. I will be back....
