Decent food. Great views

This place is hit or miss on being able to get a table and service. When we do get in we have enjoyed the food and the views. Prices are a bit high but limited choices at USNWC. Sweet potato fries are the best! Husband recommends the pulled pork and collards.

The hostess when we went to get a table need serious help. They did not have a handle on the restaurant. Told us there was a 30 minute wait. Wanted to text us when table was ready but told them we didn't have our phones as they were in lockers. They said "then just hang around" however they never called... More

I have been here 2 other times and have always loved the salads and the ahi tuna. Thus time I think the portions were smaller. We had sweet potato fries (delicious) & edamame. The former was too small but the latter was ample. The Apple/walnut & Caesar salads & the Ahi are always delicious! Service could be a lot better.... More

We have eaten here once before a year ago with 5 people and had a good experience. Today we upped the ante with a party of 9. Ashley our server was excellent. She handled special requests, was calm under pressure when the power went out, and overall was very friendly. Many thanks to the kitchen staff for getting all of... More

We waited for 1 hour and after we sat down, we waited for another 1 hour for our food... Unbelievable!! The manager didn't comp a damn thing nor apologize... And top of everything... The food was...

If you're expecting inflated prices on frozen burgers and fries when you're told you can't bring your own food to Whitewater Center, relax. The prices are on par with your typical sit-down chain, but there's actually creativity on the menu and quality ingredients involved. The chili was loaded with meat and topped with their jalapeno pimento cheese and our salads... More

great salads. Not open early enough for coffee. each time we go there to drop off teens it would be nice to sit for a few minutes before we start the day. Never a problem getting a seat though. Sometimes dislike the dogs everywhere on the secondary eating deck. Would be fine if they were well behaved.

Great salad options -- they will ask if you want to add "protein." I didn't add any, but my daughter got the salmon and it was very tasty. They have a good selection of beers and wines. Stephanie was very personable and helpful.
