Our favorite was my husbands Shrimp BLT. And we took a few pieces of cheesecake to go, it was fantastic. A neat building and a nice quiet place to have dinner.

Loved the atmosphere and friendly staff. Both the Italian dishes and the burgers were excellent, do there is something for everyone here. Great selection of wines and beers, as well.

My husband and I visit Excelsior Springs occasionally for a weekend get-away, and we always look forward to eating at Ventana. This time, we enjoyed a chicken dish and lasagna, topped off with my favorite cheesecake, caramel pecan. It was all delicious and the wait staff is top notch. I highly recommend it!

Not the type of place you expect to find in a small town. Family recipe lasagna and fettuccine alfredo were delicious. Nice wine list. Excellent cheesecake. Attentive staff.

My husband and I ate here during our stay at the Inn on Crescent Lake. It was recommended by the Innkeepers. We are so glad we went here. The Creamy Smoked Chipotle Chicken dip is AMAZING! It's so good that as soon as we returned home, I tried to imitate it! We will return if ever in the area!
