Don't miss this placed! You can't make a wrong choice off the menu- everything is fantastic! I also had my 2 yr old grandson with me. The staff was so accommodating- treated us like family. Won't visit Gaylord again without coming here!

From the food to the atmosphere, hands down the best meal I've had in years. As a chef myself I have to say, the food is absolutely spot on.

Excellent food and great atmosphere and staff. They have almost any type of alcohol you can imagine. The food might take a little longer to get you that usual but it's well worth the wait. It's also a little pricey but overall well worth it. Not a good choice for kids

Our lunch was excellent. Our virgin bloody Mary's were seasoned just right. The seared tuna was very tasty, just a little over cooked.All of the soups were excellent.

Love the creative lunch options here ! Salads and vegetarian options abound and the margaritas in various flavors are great too!

It's a wine bar, a lounge and fancy food restaurant. The décor is great. Our server was great, but way overworked with too many tables, no help. I'm surprised it was crowded on a weeknight, in off season for a resort town. The hostess did not help out. No Walleye, salmon or other seafood on a weeknight at 6:00 pm,... More

Very busy. Pretty good menu with several unique dishes that are very well presented. Top shelf bar with many specialty drinks. A little pricier than I would like but a great place when you want something a little different.
