Almost great

For the location and atmosphere and high price I was surprised how dirty the silverware was. Had to wipe all of it off. Service was excellent and food was good overall BUT the filet was medium rare (dark pink in the middle) when I asked for medium.

Menu looked appetizing but did not come through. Ribeye tasted and looked like a cheap Sirloin....shoe leather. Crab legs fishy, temperature inconsistent. Service mediocre.

Service was average, not overly friendly. Food was okay but premade and heated up. A little on the expensive side for the quality.

We have eaten at Wendall's holiday buffets in the past. Last time I gave a 5-star review... That appears to be in the past. Both my wife were deeply disappointed in this year's (2015) Thanksgiving buffet. None... I repeat... none of the dishes were memorable. Most were almost inedible. We come all the way from Las Cruces, non-gamblers, to eat... More

We decided to eat dinner at Wendalls without a reservation. The time of year we visited wasn't a busy time so we only waited about 15 minutes. My husband and I both ordered the elk steak medium rare, which is one of Wendall's specialties. It was one of the best things I have eaten! We both enjoyed it. Service was... More

While at our stay at the hotel, the adults dined at this steakhouse. Mid range in price, food was delicious. Would go again. Would not take young kids.

The decor was so beautiful with an inviting atmosphere as a solo acoustic guitarist played beautifully as we entered. The hostess was pleasant as we arrived a little early for our reservations and was very accommodating and hurried to prepare for our table. I believe it wasn't more than a thirty second wait. Our group of six adults ordered drinks,... More

We dined here twice and now our taste buds are permanently ruined. Nothing will ever can match the sumptuous fare we has at this restaurant. The ambienance was soothing and the panoramic view breathtaking. The wait staff was attentive and hospitable. Never will be the same... lol

We had a fabulous evening out for our anniversary. We were greeted by Gabriel who had been our waiter on a previous occasion, we had a beautiful table by the window with a wonderful view. From start to finish our waiter attended to our needs. We started with drinks (unusual for me). I had some kind of chocolate drink which... More
