Wait staff was limited but overall did a good job. Food was good but a definitely overpriced for what you get. Views are scenic. Overall, I would consider going there again, however there are several other places to visit in the vicinity.More

We have gone to Restoration a few times and find the views and burgers to be outstanding! We have also had nice chicken sandwiches there. The only thing that could be improved is the speed of service. The kitchen seems to run slow at times!
