We visited based upon reading this restaurant had been here a long time. When we visited it was very, very quiet and thus lacked any ambience. The server was attentive if a bit overpowering. The salad bar was OK. The prime rib was unfortunately only average when we were expecting something special. My wife said her chicken was moist and... More

This place has been here forever, and there is a reason for that. The food is excellent and fresh, and the service is excellent. If you want a good night out dining, do come and check out The Mogul

Great experience! Staff was very accommodating, we sat quickly, ordered and didn't have to wait long for our food. Prime Rib was fantastic and the Thanksgiving Turkey was great too!

A very good restaurant. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The food was pretty good. We had a steak and took advantage of the salad bar which had a nice variety of vegetables to choose from. We would definitely go there again.

We've been coming to the Mogul Restaurant since the Sixties. Yes, I am that old and yes, for a restaurant to have that kind of staying power, they must be doing something special. The Mogul is just that, something special. Their food is exceptional and their service is personable and friendly. I cannot recall ever having a less-than-great meal /... More

Love this place, the Mogul has been around forever, and that is because they are always ready to serve you an excellent meal! My kids take me there for Mother's day as it is my favorite in town. Great salad bar and I dream about the sauteed mushrooms, the prime rib melts in your mouth and you can't go wrong... More

My friend and I chose the Mogul for a relaxing night out after riding. I hadn't been there in nearly 30 years and was looking forward to getting back there. We had no reservation but were promptly and courteously seated in a nice location and were welcomed by a great waitress. Served warm bread .........We both ordered drinks (average pours)... More

My traveling companion, who is vegetarian, picked this restaurant. Our chef/server was Garrett. I had halibut, my companion had mushrooms and baked potato. Everything arrived exactly as ordered. I often ask for any sauces and dressing on the side, so I had 4 little pots with sour cream, chives, lemon sauce, and butter. Halibut was cooked perfectly, so were the... More

I came away disappointed with the food. I also learned a lesson. It sems Mogul likes to have their wait staff cook the protein that is ordered. I guess the cooks/chefs should be bringing the plates to the table. I made the mistake of ordering the ribs. The ribs were grilled for a short time , covered in sauce (which... More

This restaurant has a unique concept where your waiter is also your chef. Our waiter/chef for the night was Caren. She was very friendly and made sure we were comfortable and that we had everything we needed. She recommended the salad bar and it was devine! The meat was also delicious, very lean and of high quality. We had a... More
