“Great food - beautiful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Our anniversary dinner while at the Homestead. They had nice touches during the greeting, seating and gave us a glass of champagne (and it was the good stuff). We had a wonderful lobster appetizer, soup and short ribs that were all 4 star - price adjusted.

Service was the best that we experienced at the Homestead

“We expected more”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The new restaurant at The Homestead is fairly attractive alothough I believe a bit more care could have gone into the space planning and design. The hostess desk is in a confusing spot and there is a lot of wasted space in the lounge. We found the presence of tennis shoes and jeans in a nice restaurant to be disappointing as well as the number of items on the menu that were unavailable. Our waitress was ok, but had too many tables. I like the high top tables that overlook the deck outside, but there aren't many of those seats room nor turn over of these tables. I really had high hopes, but overall Jeffersons fell short and was HIGHLY overpriced. I am hoping Omni will transition into ownership and make appropriate adjustments.

“Great food/ambience (could get pricey)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This is more of a fancy dinner go-to, but definitely worth checking out. Wait staff is good and so is the food. Probably a little too-fancy for families with really young children. Wait a little bit til they can truly enjoy it.

“Fabulous Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Wonderful service, and great food. Salmon was huge! The wine list is impressive. All the beef is local. The lounge area with fire and TV's were nice for relaxing afterward. Game room downstairs.

“Food & Service :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The food was very good and priced fairly. It was the waiter who made me smile. Kind, funny, prompt. He brightened a rainy day.
