Stopped here for lunch with friends visiting from out of town. A holiday week during the busy season. The crowd was large and it looked to be a long wait. However, within ten minutes or so we were seated and orders placed. It took a little long to get or orders but not too bad considering the... read more

You cannot go wrong getting one of the trusted items on the menu that have been served here for years....the Arabian Club and the Wade Hampton's Downfall come highly recommended. We love that there is a full bar, and it is a happening spot for lunch. The earlier you go to lunch, the less of a wait. It tends to... More

Reservations were recognized. Seated promptly and timely served. The Duck, Scallops, Double Cut Pork chop were excellent. The spaghetti and meatballs was only ok. There were too many flys pestering our meal, be aware.

We've returned to the restaurant for dinner after a couple of less than inspiring brunch outings, and it's a pleasure to write that the dinner not only didn't disappoint, it was truly a very good experience. Service remains casual and pleasant. Everything was timely and served professionally. The serving staff could answer menu questions and make recommendations. Everything was spot... More

I loved the feel of this place. One huge room, with lots of tables... but the open walls and high ceiling made you feel like you were outside, at a picnic perhaps. Very relaxing. I had the soup and half-sandwich (White Bean Turkey Chili and design-my-own Turkey) and very much enjoyed it. I forget what my teen niece had, but... More

We had made reservationsfordinner and we're hoping they would be good top left picture is heavenly oysters appetizer. Fried in a light batter and juicy. I could have made a meal on them. Right fried skewered shrimp, again great. Meal was walleye fish and chips. Delish and meatloaf was very good with a red sauce. Definitely go again.

We had a group of 6 dine for lunch after hiking in the mountains. We loved the beer selection and the diverse & creative choices on the lunch menu. Each of us had a different meal and we all loved what we ordered. The atmosphere was relaxing and the wait staff was pleasant.
