We are never disappointed with this reliable restraunt. Enjoy beautiful views in a very clean distinguished setting. Best of both worlds here because the classy setting has options for casual meals or something formal. All the food and service was GREAT! Loved the big juicy...burgers! Very good Holiday menus, our family liked the Easter and Thanksgiving feasts. It's great to eliminate the cooking and cleaning up so we ALL can relax and enjoy the day. Easy to get a reservation or served as a walk-in. A+More

After being on the road all day I figured I could unwind at this restaurant next to my hotel, I was aware the restaurant closed at 9 so I figured I could grab a quick drink or two at the bar. Apparently that wasn’t okay...with the older gentleman that was working, as I entered instead of acknowledging me he just started cursing as if I had ruined his night, other customers heard it as well. It took him a good while to get my first drink and by the time I got it, it was already last call. Although it was very convenient to have a restaurant that close to where I was staying, I would rather drive somewhere else where I don’t get cursed at for coming to bar for a drink and also where the bartender doesn’t smell of marijuana.More

Wow! First of all we found this restaurant through TripAdvisor. We almost didn’t go in judging the appearance of the restaurant from the outside but based on the reviews we thought we would give it a try. It was 2:00 on a Sunday afternoon and...we were traveling home from celebrating our 20th anniversary. We were hungry for some lunch. Upon entering the restaurant, it was VERY spacious and also very dated! Definitely seemed like the restaurant had seen better times… maybe in the 80s or 90s. There were some areas of clutter or disrepair. There was no lunch menu but there was a bar menu. So we were left with the dinner menu. Prices were very expensive. I went with the stuffed sole. It cost $27 and that was one of the lesser priced items. I would expect to pay that price for fresh seafood but it was frozen as our waitress shared when asked. Nothing was special or gourmet enough to warrant the prices being asked. For being a fine dining establishment, there was not the professionalism of staff one would usually expect. The hostess never acknowledged us and our waitress was friendly and attentive but maybe too friendly…. Very talkative and quite a strong outspoken personality. I wouldn’t want to make her angry. The view however was amazing! This spot has so much potential and the menu options were lovely as well but lunch options would be more appropriate for that time of day and fresher food for the listed menu items would make it worth the price. We were just passing through but would probably not stop again.More

We’re snowbirds traveling back to Troy NY from Cocoa Beach Florida. This was our final overnight and we were beyond impressed at the fabulous restaurant connecting our hotel. The views amazing, the service, above and beyond (thank you Alex & best of luck). The food...by far the best we’ve experienced in awhile. I had the seafood salad which was fresh and delicious beyond any we’ve had in Florida. The chicken dish enjoyed by my mate was plentiful and more than his hearty appetite could handle. So much so that the cheesecake for dessert was declined. That NEVER happens! Don’t miss this hidden gem!!More

Our first visit was pleasant. The waitress was super nice, made sure water glasses were filled, wore a mask, catered to requests. The food was good. Portion size was large so had another meal to take home. We particularly loved the Watermelon Salad. The guys...got Old Fashioned drinks they said were good. Bread with seasoned olive oil was okay.

First off, I would definitely go back. This review is to help management/owners. (sorry I am an auditor ;-)) The service and the food were quite good. But this place could be so much more. The location is great but the decor is sooo dated,...like 1960's dated! This is the type of space that an interior designer would dream about! Such a great view wasted because the windows are set at an improper angle and reflect the interior light. (see a high end rooftop restaurant to observe how to avoid this). Tables/chairs, flooring, decor.... all need a reboot. Also, more attention to portion control and business management is needed. I ordered wings, which were great, but they were huge and there were too many. I left 4 behind (fyi, I'm 6', 190). I asked for blue cheese and hot sauce on the side. I got a full soup bowl of blue cheese dip - the good kind with great chunks of blue cheese in it - it was excellent but I used maybe 1/20th of the bowl. Same with the hot sauce. A huge waste. I looked around at other diners and it was the same thing - huge portions , lots of leftovers.More

While this restaurant offers a beautiful panoramic view of the valley, and good, but overpriced food and wine, we felt a bit uncomfortable as this was our very first indoor dining experience since March. Although a sign on the door required all guests to wear...masks, we were greeted at the hostess stand by the hostess who seated us, without social distancing from us and not wearing a mask! In fact, she did not wear a mask at any time. She Helped reset unwrapped silverware on tables, touching the silverware without gloves. Our server was pleasant and the food was good.More
