We always enjoy our visits to Great American Saloon. The food is always fresh and very good. The only true " fancy" place to eat in Red Lion

This place just keeps getting worse. The food is a really bad try at fine dining. Its overpriced and unimpressive. A lot of our food came out cold but we were so hungry from waiting we ate it anyway. Our server was the one bright spot on our visit. I was going to complain until I noticed the servers were... More

Ate at the Great American Saloon and I'm not certain that I'll return. I called ahead to see if they were busy around 5:30 pm and the host stated they were not busy. Since we live about 5 minutes away, we hopped in our vehicle and headed over. When we arrived, the hostess informed us we had to wait over... More

I had a really terrible experience here the soup had shell in it, the waitress wasn't attentive, the food was cold, I told the waitress and she just said wow I'm sorry and didn't do anything about it, I asked her 3 times. They changed the gravy recipe and it tastes cheap. I was just really let down by this... More

My wife and I received a gift card for Christmas for the Great American Saloon. We had never been, and being our weekend was open, decided to pay a visit. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The various décor along the walls and above added to the new experience we were enjoying. Our service was great - we didn't wait... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner tonight and, although the service was good and the venue was busy, the food was just so so. I had a beef dish and my wife had a chicken dish. Neither were very good. It surprised me based on what many have written in their reviews of this restaurant. Maybe it was an... More

Tonight he had steak Chesapeake, NY strip or rib eye covered in a crab wine sauce and served with scallops. She had chicken medeira, Sautee chicken breast, asparagus, mushrooms and melted mozzarella cheese with mushroom medeira sauce plated with red... More

I've never been here with the exception of the Thanksgiving Buffet. There were simply masses and we were a part of a 30 person party. Service was slow but the servers were nice. The Buffet was better than expected and well stocked. I would say that's the food was the equivalent of Cracker Barrel.

This was our go to place whenever we went out to dinner. Our experience has been getting worse each time we go, tonight was the icing on the cake we will not be going back. Prices have increased over time, service is slower, and the food is poor. We ordered a medium steak and when it got to our table... More
