We stayed at the Wingate and this place was located in front in the parking lot. Upon walking in the front doors the restaurant is very nicely decorated and has nice ambience. The staff was friendly and the service was good....thats where I stop.
We ordered 2 homemade Bison burgers at $16 a piece and 2 $7 beers, as well as a $9 kids meal (chicken fingers...same meal much less almost everywhere else). Who charges $9 for kids meal? Anyways, it wasn't busy, not even half full and it was around 6pm on a wednesday evening and our service was good and the food came in a timely manner. The kids meal came out first and the burgers followed about 5 minutes after. The plate was packed with food, albeit 1/4 of that plate was fancy sliced veggies and another 1/4 was bun top. First bite into the burger and it was pink, very pink. My wifes burger was cooked better but still some a slight pink almost not noticeable. My burger was sent back and re-done, properly this time. My wife was told hers was ok and she ate it. The restaurant promo'd my beer over the error and the bill came to just over $50. I have eaten many a bison burger and prefer it to beef, but this one was not a favorite, Neither my wife or I liked the taste. The fries were good and crispy, my wife had mashed potatoes and only had 2 or 3 bites saying they tasted terrible. The kids meal looked good and I wished I had ordered that.
The table right beside us also had under cooked food, some sort of chicken dish. The manager was very apologetic to us and the other table.
The next day my wife was sick with symptoms of mild food poisoning and it negatively affected the days plans.
If you don't mind paying for a fancy restaurant surrounded by hotels I guess this is the place, but I will not be returning. The only reason I gave it 2 stars over 1 was the fact that the staff were friendly and it was a nice looking place inside.
