Great atmosphere, disappointing food.

We went to the Brass Lantern with friends from Europe. The side salads were fresh, and the grilled chicken salad was huge. However, the dressings were nothing special and the salad didn't even have croutons! The grilled fish was tasty, but not near worth the price. They do bring rolls before your... read more

So after reading the reviews.... we decided to give it a try since gearing there were new owners. We were created immediately.. very friendly and nice atmosphere. Only one table was filled. We're approached immediately by more friendly staff. Decent menu and just what I had read online. The couple I was with ordered Pork Chops well seasoned and cooked... More

New owners have greatly improved the restaurant. The service was great and the food was excellent! We will definitely become frequent patrons of this fine dining establishment. We wish the Weismullers success and all the best in their new venture at the Brass Lantern.

We’ve been to this restaurant in the past and had a good meal so when deciding where to go for New Year's dinner we went back (mistake). I had looked at the menu online during the afternoon (urbanspoon.com) and after sitting down and opening the menu in the restaurant found it was not the same. There were half the items... More

Much improved with new ownership/management. Had reservations Saturday night and the place was packed. The service was average (considering the crowd) It was very noisy in the bar area, but we enjoyed our time with friends. The drinks, salad and food were good. It is a great evening option and I like supporting local businesses (not chain stores). The mushroom... More

We loved this restaruant. It was recommended by the folks at the Super 8 and we had the best duck we tried in our lives. Hopefully we get a chance to eat here again!

Good food at AGREAT price. The only complaint was the temperature was set so low the ladies had to to the car and get cover ups. Mentioned to server and was told it was hot in the kitchen. Never did get a good temperature.

My friend and I were vacationing at Wyndham Fairfield Glade and was seeking a place for her to celebrate her 38th wedding anniversary (first anniversary away from her husband and she still wanted to celebrate it in a special way as they always do together).

My daughter and son-in-law drove up here from Florida to take me to dinner on October 4, 2014, for my 80th birthday. My choice of restaurants was The Brass Lantern. We arrived at 6:30 for our appointed reservation time. The hostess seated us at a table near the partition in the front (where the cold air from the open doorway... More

I was there as the "guest" of a financial planner. We were allowed to choose from several menu items and most of the group ordered the steak. I had the salmon. Everyone said their meal was excellent and there were no complaints from anyone. The staff of the planner ate in the restaurant and ordered off the regular menu. Everyone... More
