Close friends bragged about this place as a go-to for good food. Did take-out. No one was in the restaurant when I arrived so you would think that the kitchen would be able to prepare a good meal. Boy was I wrong. Ordered pork chop...and seafood pasta. Pork chop was not fully cooked and was raw next to the bone. It was sitting in what appeared to me an oily greasy concoction. Mashed potatoes were almost runny and green beans were chewy. Pasta was also in the same greasy concoction. Shrimps were off tasting and scallops were brown one side, almost raw on the other. The plate looked like it had been thrown together. Had way overpriced chocolate cake. Huge ($100) disappointment.More

Great place for dinner at Deep Creek Lake. The food was exceptional and the service was great. We had the chicken Chesapeake pasta and the seafood sauté over pasta. The seafood was delicious and the portions huge.

My mom and I came to Ace’s Run after a nice day of hiking. We were very hungry and the menu looked quite appetizing, though expensive. Our Clams Casino came out almost immediately, making me wonder if it was prepared way ahead of time and...heated up at a moment’s notice. It had, bacon, spinach (?), melted cheese and other ingredients I couldn’t quite parse out, all mashed together in each clam shell, making the flavor of the clams themselves undetectable. And frankly it was just too many flavors. Our two main entrees took another 30-40 minutes. We got the mushroom ravioli and the maple scallops and split the dishes half and half between us. There were so many cherry tomatoes and mushrooms in each dish, we wondered if they were trying to get rid of a surplus in the kitchen, and my mom bit into a huge mushroom-looking thing with thirty or so different offshoots but was too uncertain about what exactly it was to consume it. She also bit into something that was too hard (maybe overcooked?) to chew, so she had to spit it out. The scallops were delicious, but there were only 4 or 5 of them total, and the rice, tomatoes, mushrooms etc that the scallops lay on top of was so sweet, it tasted like maple syrup had been poured over the whole thing. Since we had had a busy day walking around in the brisk air, we were super hungry, so we ate ravenously, but after I felt mildly satiated, it became obvious that I wasn’t really enjoying what I was eating. Far too many flavors in each dish, despite the excess of cherry tomatoes and mushrooms. Thanks for reading and I hope this is helpful! The view from the restaurant is gorgeous and I think it could be a really wonderful establishment if the food were more appetizing.More

As Deep Creek Lake residents, my wife and I generally avoid restaurants during the busy summer tourist season. With summer over, we tried the Wednesday Pasta Night at Ace's Run. We were not expecting such a fun experience! The chef creates your custom pasta dish...right in front of you - kinda like making you a custom omelet at a breakfast bar. Plenty of choices of ingredients, sauces and pasta. They allow you two trips to the bar, but it's difficult to imagine an appetite which would allow that.More

Beautiful setting, I will give it that, but the service experience left so much to be desired, and that is why it gets two stars. The food was very good, once we got it. The cocktails were not good. The strangest margarita I’ve ever had...- it tasted like Hi-C orange drink, salt and water! Our waitress was very scattered and kept forgetting to bring our drinks and water, even after a couple of reminders. The entrees were generously sized, and tasty, but the experience was not what we had hoped for.More

We came on a Wednesday night and there were six of us. We all had something different and everyone was pleased with there meals. The service was fantastic. They have a pasta buffet on Wednesday nights and it looked amazing.

Very good food and wonderful service! Was here for a birthday celebration. It was a Wednesday, and they feature a Pasta bar on this day. It's 2 trips and you pick your pasta, veggies, other meat or chicken toppings (seafood for a little extra), and...sauce. You get two trips and it's only $21 ! I had a seafood linguine which was very good. Nice size portions too.More

Packed for a Wed night, waited 45 mins for table. Server was nice enough but had to ask for silverware-she was busy waiting on many other tables-took our order after 20 min wait-we then waited 45 minutes for our meal-I got the scallops-husband got salmon-cold...when it arrived but we were so damn hungry we ate it. Never offered bread or anything. Llooonnnggg wait and never an apology. Heard our server tell table behind us that “crème brûlée on me, I feel like I’ve neglected you” and we just both looked at each other like, “what”??!!! Way over priced 4 scallops over bed or rice with edamame for $34. No way. Would not recommend at all.More

Shady practices- server overcharged my credit card 5 hrs after we left the restaurant. I have a picture of my receipt and emailed to restaurant and called several times and no response.

Not your average food. It’s not perfect every time, don’t get me wrong, but this is real food. Great creativity from the chef to make fun food that is a pleasure to eat, not only due to amazing flavor and taste, but in presentation. I’m...actually always intrigued by the texture which some people don’t consider. Everything always seems to have an unexpected twist. A little crunch here. A little sweet there. A spice that suddenly takes a bite out of you instead of the inverse. I truly enjoy every experience here. And lakeside?!? Love it.More
