“Awesome views!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Our plan was to have one drink in the bar while enjoying the view. However, after viewing the snack menu we decided to stay for dinner. We had the chicken cesar salad and a burger and fries. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. However, when you add in 4 glasses of wine, the cost was $93.

“A special experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

What makes Allred's special, of course, is the spectacular view of the mountains and the valley below through large windows. The best views are from the tables right next to the windows, but don't worry if you don't get one of those because even from the back of the room the view is lovely. The bar has the same view, but there are only about four tables that have a view.

Our food was very good, although not quite at the level one would expect of a restaurant at this high price point. My fresh tomato soup had a uniquely delicious twist of a large dollop of steamed coconut milk on top. My wife's salmon and my pork chop were both great, although both were a little undercooked.

Service was very attentive. Prices were high, although not out of line considering the view.

Allred's is a very good choice for a romantic dinner or a special occasion.

“A wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

We had a great experience at Allreds. The drinks in the bar were a wonderful start with excellent service. We moved into dinner and were treated to a delicious meal. The appetizers and main course exceeded our expectations. Overall the food, the service and the setting made this a memorable night.

“Terrific Food and Service!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

We had an amazing time at Allreds! The food was great and the Cesar salad is unbeatable! You have to get it for the croutons! Most of my family and friends had the steak, and everyone was very pleased. I had the salmon and it was also terrific! The staff made sure everything was perfect! Would definitely return.
