“Good food, excellent service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

An adjunct to the Homestead in that its a short walk from the resort and worth the walk. We had an excellent meal served by a very talented server who knew how to smile and keep a smile in her voice. The burgers were first rate and the entire meal was well above average. Just what we expected for a place with such a venerable name.

“An Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Mike husband and I did not have reservations so we sat at the bar. The service was a humiliating experience, we will leave it at that. I had the trout and a salad which was delicious. Yes, it was overpriced but that was not a surprise as it is part of the Homestead. I would like to go back again with reservations.

“Interesting pub - good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Ate her on our first night at the Homestead. Trying to service better than average food in a pub setting. Service and atmosphere were OK, but not special. The food was pretty good - I had a very good Parmesan crusted trout but it was also not cheap. Overall - we had a good experience, but weren't dying to go back. Recommend checking out the Waterwheel in Warm Springs instead

“Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Comfortable, casual venue. Trout is very good. Great drinks. Sides okay. Ate here last year and it was amazing. This time very good but not quite as good as last.

“Nice early dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

They were very friendly with great service. One of our party was on a special diet. The server had the chef come out and he listened to her restrictions and together they came up with a dinner just for her. The rest of us had the fish and chips, which were very good but the price was a little high. We did not have reservations and were seated right away.
