The food was delicious. I was very surprised because it seemed like a touristy spot to eat and I was afraid the food would taste like the threw it in the microwave and slapped it on a dish but... was I wrong. It was so good. I ordered the whitefish with Polenta.NOM, NOM, my husband ordered the pork tenderloins .... More

We ate during a Friday lunch. Only a few other groups dining. Service was friendly but seemed distracted. Both of us had the garden salad with the Wood Fire Pizzas. The salad was a decent size as a side salad. The pizza was just underwhelming. The crust not good at all and we really thought it would be better. For... More

There was a good selection on the menu, but the food was very overpriced. Besides that, everything was pretty much alacarte and if you wanted soup or a salad you had to pay handsomely for it. They did not even give you a bread basket. The service was terrible. We waited over an hour for our food and never offered... More

This is a fairly nice restaurant and the food is good; not excellent but good. My complaint is in the décor. The restaurant is advertised by the tour guides as "rustic" which I suppose is true. You are surrounded by driftwood that twists all around and under your table which makes it very difficult to get your legs in a... More

Food was amazing! Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo; one of the best Italian dishes I've had. Pizza was very delicious. Staff was very friendly. Price wasn't out of this world, but fair. Except for having to pay for mediocre breadsticks. Saying that the chairs were uncomfortable and the theme felt more like a hunting cabin. The dining hall is tucked behind a... More

The ambience was great, I think this was an old "Rustic furniture" store, and some of the taxidermied animals remain. Kinda cool. Hubby ordered a Stromboli, and I, Ravioli. Waitress said it would be about 20 min for the Stromboli, we said OK. Well about 40 min later we finally got served. Hubby liked his food very much. There were... More

Last night, my son and I stopped in to order a pizza to go since it was right by my motel. There were not very many people inside as it was 10 p.m. I ordered a small 12" pizza with 2 topping and it came to about $20. A little steep even for a pizza place in a tourist city.... More
