Four of stopped in for lunch July 18/14. . Ordered coffee. She brought our coffee cups, but put the pot of coffee on the empty table next to us and left. After 5 minutes we asked the hostess if we had to serve ourselves from the coffee pot. She contacted our server and she finally pressed and poured the coffee.... More

Enjoyed dinner on the expansive porch on a lovely summer evening. The staff was friendly and the food was great. We has grilled Caesar salads (one with chicken, one with shrimp) and the pheasant. All were good portions, but not as large as one might expect. The dress code varied widely, ranging from families in jeans and flip flops to... More

We visited the restaurant on the Sunday evening after July 4th and found the food and service to be top notch. The cocktails were "pricey" - a Patron margarita was $13 (small glass). My husband and I both selected the scallop entrée and loved them. I asked to leave off the garlic mash and substituted the coleslaw (low carb diet... More

This restaurant has a locals special dinner of a burger and a beer where you are required to sit in the bar area and not on the lovely patio. That brought with it sarcastic comments from an overly snooty waiter, and poor unfriendly service. We were there to check out this restaurant for a large family reunion and made the... More

I hate Sirloin..but I would order it here every night. Tender! Candied bacon was wonderful! Such a great find. Will be back again.

I'd likely go back and specifically in the evening for another try. The menu had some good looking options and we may have picked poorly for our liking. We were there for lunch and I gather that the place must do well at night. Easy to find. Service was good, Good selection of beers and wines.

enjoyed the ambience, but the food is way too pricey for what you get. Filet reduction sauce tasted like it came from a McCormicks dry packet, but filet was good. The bread pudding ended things nicely, but for the price, I'd recommend the Brown Trout Mountain Grille for quality, consistency and variety at a more reasonable price.

We weren't expecting to find a restaurant with so many gluten free options on the menu - and Gamekeeper's exceeded my husband's and my dietary and flavor expectations. From past reviews, I think there has been confusion about the back entrance, but upon parking we were easily directed by a well-located sign with an arrow. We requested patio seating so... More

I have eaten many times at the Gamekeeper's Tavern with my daughter who loves it because of the Beet Salad their policy to allow dogs on the porch. The food (for the price) isn't exceptional, but the atmosphere and general "vibe" contribute to a pleasant eating experience. For this reason we brought our very good friends to the restaurant. My...

Lunch is something new this year at The Gamekeeper's Tavern. My husband and I tried it yesterday and we thought it was one of the best lunch places in the area. The menu has a large variety of items and it's reasonably priced. I had the lentil coconut soup, thick with lentils, black beans and tomatoes. Delicious! I also had... More
