Food was bland. Service was good. Had the buffalo short ribs and it tasted like crock pot roast with little seasoning. Crab cakes were mostly cake very little crab.

Came here with a golfing group and was pleased to find a place that was in sharp contrast to the high desert in New Mexico. Very comfortable and excellent service.

My husband and I are here with two other couples and received excellent service. Our glasses of water never went past half full! We both ordered the beef tenderloin which was cooked to perfection. Wonderful presentation!! Creme brule was also delicious!!

Ate outside, food was excellent. I had lamb chops and my friend had short ribs - a bit pricey but excellent. Except for the flies, the evening was really nice.

Lovely room, delightful food. We opted to go light and had the crab cakes, scallops, Caesar spears, roasted Brussels sprouts, beet salad from the starter menu. It was beautifully presented and prepared.

I didn't eat in the restaurant, instead choosing to sit at the bar both nights of my stay. I couldn't fault the service, drinks or food, it was all very, very good. Pity the overall hotel service was average, otherwise I would look forward to returning to the bar/restaurant.
