My girlfriend and I went to the Den Restaurant at Nicklaus North Golf Course for a fondue dinner. This place is exactly what the title says "It is what it is". The van that picked us up had an odor and stunk really bad, I was glad that the ride and transportation wasn't long because I didn't enjoy that smell when we got in.
The service is pretty bad and the price point is ridiculous for what you get. I can't believe we paid a $140.00 dollars for a couple drinks and a couple pieces of food that weren't that great. I would say the price point of $48.00 per person is double what it should be... this is nothing more then a 20-25.00 per person setting. Anything above and beyond $25.00 is a joke for what you get here. If the service was exceptional, that would make up for it a bit but... sadly, it was not made up by the service but in my opinion made matters worse.
The thing that made me mad inside is the fact that it wasn't even busy, I'm talking like 4 tables and a few in the lounge that were occupied... and still our server was pretty much non existant half way through our dinner to the end. It was only at the end she wanted to be talkative when it came time to pay "hoping for a tip", well, your tip is earned not given based on being bubbly at the end of the meal.
The meat is not that great, wouldn't recommend eating that and or you better cook it for longer then 3-5 minutes. The other thing was annoying was the fact our burner went out twice on us and we had to ask for another server to re-light the burner for us. When he tried, his lighter didn't work and he had to get another one. There are a number of complaints about this place and I recommend to anyone who reads this not to attend and or come to this restaurant.
The only thing that is good about this place is the fact that it's a nice setting inside and on a summer's day if you were out on the patio... I could see why looking out at a lake or golf course would be a nice little relaxing treat so to speak.
