Amazing food and friendly service. You have made me a new regular! Have tried both the pork with mango chutney and the lamb, both phenomenal!

Promising menu and we'll located in the hotel but the service is brutal. Two evenings of poor service and tonight I saw one staff try to handle a full bar and 9 or 10 tables by himself. I disn't have the heart to add to his stress so we ordered in. If you want to run a restaurant staff it.

Way too many 5* ratings for this place. Maybe the calibration is a bit different than I'm used to. The menu was promising, however I would put the Lamb salad my friend had as sub-par and the walleye I had as OK. Beer selection was quite limited and we had to send back a couple of glasses of wine due... More

What a strange place to find a superior restaurant! It was inside a County Inn and Suites. Great ambiance, great service, and a five star chef. Wonderful selection on both the food and wine menus. Full Bar too. Check it out!

Connected to the CIS hotel made it a plus to grab something quick and easy. Service was great. Got back to the hotel and needed something to help me relax, sat the bar and joined the conversation between some of the other patrons and bar tender who actually seemed to care that you were there.

Wait staff wonderful. Warm atmosphere. Enough selections on menu to find something without going out to seek a different place to eat, (which I didn't want to do with outside below zero temps.)

The Onyx Bar is a bar with televisions, stools around an L-shaped bar and several tables for dining or drinks. The menu is never changing. It was the same when we went in on our first night as it was on our last night. Just how much Chilean Sea Bass did they order? The food was average. It caters to... More
