“not what it once was”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Not fresh, flavor muddled or watered down. Princess was not special not rich.Was one note dish . Mushrooms watery like frozen and reheat crab taste not present just blah. Wine good pork chop dry out and terrible. Cheese cake still frozen hard to eat. Not the uptown special restaurant anymore. Food not fresh or flavorful .

“Rooftop's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We had a birthday party last night to celebrate my mom's 90th. Food was wonderful, service was good, This restaurant is a great place for special occasions. It will be missed by lots of people when it closes it's doors at the end of the year.

“Great City View. Great Food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Rooftops restaurant is located on the top (6th) floor of the Emprise Bank building located in downtown Hays. Reservations are suggested. The atmosphere could be better as the decor is fairly dated. However, the food is fantastic. I can highly reccomend the Filetto de Manzo Alla Princesa if you like steak and a touch of seafood. This dish is Tenderloin medallions with crabmeat, shrimp and finished with fresh basil and a splash of burgundy and topped with Hollandaise sauce. Add a glass of wine to this and you have a great meal at about $24.00. In my opinion Rooftops has the best steak in Hays. Service is fast. Full bar offered. Lounge is down the hall for pre and post beverages.

“Best elegant dining in Hays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

If you have a special occasion, then this is your place. Food is really good, and service is excellent. The view from the top floor of the bank building is also probably the best in Hays. Place is tastefully decorated, and is usually not too noisy or overcrowded. Perfect place to celebrate. Kinda pricey, but for special occasions, its worth it.
