“What went wrong?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

We went on a Friday night. The place was packed. The view is great and the weather was perfect. I have never seen it that busy. The servers were under stress. We got a meat and cheese basket while others in our group got meals. The food never came for about half our people. Apparently the kitchen crew was overloaded and couldn't keep up. Others were not getting their food around us. The waitresses were put in a bad spot. Management did not react well. They should have come out to address the problem, but left it to these young girls. We made sure we took care of them. It wasn't their fault. We ended up going somewhere else to eat.

“Average food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Our waiter was wonderful and made every effort to meet all of our requests and needs. The food was average. Not what I would've expected for the price. The wine was good, and priced competitively with other restaurants. I would definitely go back.

“Two Thumbs Up, Plus!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Best Restaurant in the 50 states, & Europe. Brayden, the master server was beyond expectations.
He allowed us four, to sample all the select beers, until we found one to our taste. Also, his food service knowledge & friendliness was excellent. John, the Chef came out of the kitchen & asked for feedback & suggestions after giving us suggestions, before we ordered; wow!. Cecil, the Manager; is a master servant type of keep the customer happy with excellent food, staff, & facilities. His bathrooms are the best, unique, & clean & warm; ever. What a touch of class in all areas. Thank You Guy's!

Rich & Nancy H. Trade Lake, WI We will Return!

“Top Notch Restaurant On Top Of A River Bluff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

This is a great place for both lunch and dinner. Our server was fabulous, and the food exceptional! After talking with him we learned that most of the staff was previously employed at a now defunct restaurant that was a favorite of my wife and I which was located in nearby Columbia MO. So we felt a real connection to this establishment right from the start. The view of Jefferson City is a real bonus, as is the wonderful outside patio area. I can't wait to sip wine and eat good food during the coming months ahead when the weather improves. You can't go wrong dining here.

“Wow!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We went here after riding 10 miles on the MO Katy Trail and decided to have lunch then ride back 10 more miles to our car. After tasting 4 good wines, it was hard to make a decision on which one to order, but we ordered the White Knight, Sweet White Wine! It was so good that we brought two more bottles to go. At 25 bucks a bottle, it had to be some good stuff! And I ordered the Prime Rib Sandwich! OMG, was it good! After eating and drinking, I didn't want to leave, was fat and very happy! LoL! This was a Sunday evening about 4pm. I asked the waiter how long will they be open and he told me until the last customer left! Now that's what you call good customer service! I will be going back again, soon! They also have Dinner Murder Mysteries in Oct, Nov and Dec. Check their website for dates and times.
