“Once was enough”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I wanted to like this place so much, but the food is really, really not very good. We had dinner there two nights just because there's nowhere else to go. Food and service went from bad to worse. Too bad because it's an awesome location.

“Good food, expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We both enjoyed the food, it was a bit expensive - but worth it. The service was friendly, and the venue was attractive.

“Enjoyed it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

So, usually these places are ok at best. They know you have no other options if you would like to eat. Read the reviews I expected the same just below average food and service. I was pleasantly
surprised! The service was friendly and prompt. We enjoyed all of our dinners. All were cooked perfectly. They were able to accommodate our dietary restrictions without complaint. We did almost have a situation when they could not find our reservation the first night and next available seating was at over 2 hours later. They found the reservation a few minutes later so crisis was averted. I would strongly suggested making a reservation in advance as suggested on the hotel website. They will also ask if you would like to make a reservation upon hotel check-in. The hotel was sold out and there were many hungry and annoyed people sitting in the lobby waiting to eat with no reservation.

“Average, but the only full service restaurant around”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Terrible service, average food (though you get a lot of it). It is the only full service restaurant in the park. The waitstaff and bartender don't care about service (I guess because they have to live on property and they are the only game in town). They do have free WiFi in the lodge and restaurant.
