Get there early on a Tuesday as it fills up fast! Food was mostly good. Salmon, mashed potatoes, green beens, yummy. Shepard's pie, yummy. Pork chop with blue cheese. Blue cheese was a not so great topping. Pasta with seafood, pasta overcooked. Soup, terrible. Tasted...like watered down bbq sauce. Thin. Little pork or beans. Waitress was sweet but seemed a bit overwhelmed.More

I had a very good Mojito while waiting to be seated. We were told that it would be 15-20 minutes until a table would be available, it was actually 30-35 minutes. Once seated it took over a hour to get our food. The only saving...grace is the food was good. Not convinced I will return.More

Nice setting, get an outside table. The food is wonderful, the mixed drinks leave a lot to be desired. Wife ordered a fruity cocktail from the menu. She was brought an empty glass and an unopened can.

We stopped in for an early dinner and decided to have a starter and a main course between us with a salad. It turned out even that was too much for the two of us as the portion sizes were very generous. Good view over...the lake from the dining room while the trees are yet to regain their summer foliage. Pleasant ambiance in the restaurant. Pleasant staff and reasonably priced.More

Our family of three was spending the night in the area and decided to try Ace's. It did not disappoint. Our server, Derrick, was the best. Very professional and friendly. Real food is served here! From the pork chop my husband got to the beet...salad, maple glazed carrots and mashed potatoes. The warm rolls are amazing! It would be nice if they would serve a tasty gluten free roll as well.More

This is a nice restaurant on the lake with good views. While the duck wontons weren't what we expected (cream cheese with small bits of duck), the main courses made up for them. The pork shank was a large portion with tender pork and nice...seasonings. I had the scallop appetizer, and enjoyed the seared scallops on butternut puree with chorizo. The chocolate flourless cake for dessert topped a nice dinner.More

The service was very good, nothing to complain about there and the staff was friendly. The dining room is nice & spacious, but it felt "dated" (much like the rest of the property). our real issue was with the prices being commensurate with the food...quality - it doesn't measure up. First, we shared the warm beet salad which had real beets (not canned) which is good, but the rest of the salad was uneventful - nothing 'wrong' with it and nothing positive commenting on. For drinks, one of us had an old fashioned that was terribly weak / short on the rye and just not dressed up enough; totally bland. On the entrée side, one of us had the sesame crusted tuna but it was served sliced; you serve it that way over a salad for $18.95 not over greasy fried rice for $23.95 because sliced makes it a smaller portion. It was cooked as ordered so good points there. One of us had chile-dusted salmon which was also cooked as ordered but other than the seasoning, it was flavorless - indicating it was likely just a farm-raised selection that has sat in the freezer for quite some time. All in all just an average, over-priced experience that we will not be revisiting.More

We'd been on the road for 3 hours from Washington, DC, so we were ready for lunch. Our friends had given us a list of places to try. I looked at menus and chose Ace's Run!! We enjoyed a cold beer, with a view of...the lake. My husband was surprised that I chose the veggie burger, but the flavors just seemed to suit my tastes that day. It was a mix of veggies, with Asian flavors, pickled onions and a peanut sauce. We also had the warm beet salad with goat cheese and walnuts. Both were delicious!!More

A beautiful dining room with a full bar and outdoor dining options are to be had at Ace's. A very relaxing and soothing setting with an appealing menu that offers numerous options to please a crowd. My husband feasted on the crab soup, his first...taste ever, followed by Shepherd's pie, an all-time favorite food of his. The blackened pork chop was my choice with two side vegetables. The vegetables were cooked to perfection and the chop was meaty, juicy, and full of flavor. Ace's did not disappoint and our waitress, Autumn, is a delight.More

We picked Ace's Run Restaurant for Dinner the second night we were there. Their menu was very appealing. Strong in Seafood. We were celebrating our 40th Anniversary. We were seated at the window and the view of the lake was spectacular!. The server explained that...there were a number of price changes and items unavailable due to the current market. They were having a hard time getting crab. I ordered the Seafood Sauté. They added more shrimp to make up for the missing crab. It was loaded with seafood! It tasted fabulous. Well worth the price. The server was at our table a lot checking on us and our food even though he had a large amount of guest. The atmosphere was very nice. The only thing I could say that wasn't the greatest was the decorating - the lights reminded you of a 80's hotel in the Poconos. But I would definitely go back for their food. They did a great job.More
