“Just because a place looks nice, doesn't mean it is.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

We've eaten here a handful of times, never our first choice. When it was new we tried it because of all the hype, but while we thought the restaurant was stunning, look-wise, we found the food overpriced for its mediocre taste. One of the things that has been consistent with our few visits has been the so-so tasting food and less than impressive wait staff. The last time we ate there it was a weekday morning for breakfast, and we were seated with the only two other parties in the entire place down near the bar. The waitress never brought us water. I eventually had to go to the bar and ask for a glass of water so I could take an aspirin I had been waiting to take for almost 10 minutes while the waitress was... well... somewhere. Not sure where she kept vanishing to because she wasn't down there attending to the few tables of people she had. We probably sat a total of 20-25 minutes before she even took our order, and it took forever to get our breakfasts, which were lukewarm. Needless to say, they had their last "do over" with us and we haven't been back in almost a year.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

My husband and I are there while passing through for just the night. It came as a recomendation from the hotel and we loved it. The service was great, the staff were very nice and accomidating, and the food was great. We both got fish dishes and both were so good that we ended up sharing both plates to get the best of both worlds. The grounds around the restaurant are worth an after dinner stroll down by the river. It was designed to look like a river ranch and they did a great job.

“Both food & atmosphere are excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

Gorgeous restaurant right on the River. A lodge-like atmosphere with great views of the river and park across the river. Large deck area for eating as well and can view the river traffic. Our family of 6 all ordered different meals and they were all very tasty and priced reasonably. Staff courteous, friendly and paid attention. A little bit of a wait (5 min), seemed like a reservation is advisable for deck seating. Clean place with a lot of charm.

“Great food AND serivice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

We choose the Taprock Grill for the rehearsal dinner the night before my son's wedding. We had our own private room; not only with tables & chairs but with couches and a fireplace. When booking them for the rehearsal dinner, theyoffered us the option of a buffet (with a certain price per person) OR just letting everyone order off the menu. We choose to let everyone order off the menu. Even though there were about 40 of us; the service AND the food was great! The menu has a wide variety of choices and there prices are reasonable. Great place!

“Good Food, Good atmosphere, but felt too much like a chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

We enjoyed our food, and the service was good. The view sitting over the river was great. The only drawback is that it felt a little too much like a national chain restaurant, like a Red Robin and we normally look for local flavor.
