The setting was interesting and the food was good. There is a very large Cree that rises up several stories in the middle of the restaurant.

A little pricy but really worth it!!! The restaurant is amazing and the food is really good. Service was also really good. I do recommend you to have dinner in a tree house! Great memories!

This is a nicely built restaurant. Being seated around a tree. Be sure to sit close te the tree. It's not only nicer to be there but anywhere else it is absolutely impossible to hear eachother because of the loud music. Food is ok , but not really good. Staff is very friendly.

Eating in a tree restaurant is different and we are glad we did. However,the food and beverages are overpriced for what you get. We had a very small portion of calmari as an entree and pizza. Going once is enough.

Decorated beautifully and the real tree in center of the Restaurant Is awesome to look at. Live music was great for the night we went. Only I had was that the prices for food and drinks are on the pricey side.

An incredible place to go for a drink - very different and such a nice atmosphere. The live band were amazing as well!! Pricey menu though so if you are on a budget I'd recommend eating elsewhere then just coming here for a drink afterwards

We stopped here to eat with our tour group. Normally a group of 25 seems hard to accommodate but The Tree House handled our orders, service and bill without a problem. Would eat here again.
