Reviewed October 25, 2012

The Maitre d was not very nice, but the food and views were excellent. Get the coupon for 1/2 off an entree at any attraction rack. You'll be glad you did.

“Another view”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This was a fun thing to do on the tour we booked, but I would not pay extra for it by itself. We did have a good view of the whole city, but at the end of a long day it did not do a lot for us.

“Atmosphere and food”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Amazing meal. We thought we were going for the buffet but the website was not up to date. The regular meal was very good though.

“Great View and that's about all...”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I thought the view was second to no other. My friends and I made reservations at the restaurant but ended up walking out. The waiter had an attitude and was quite rude. We asked questions about the menu and he seemed annoyed. We were not going to pay about $40-50 a plate and be treated poorly. I did mention it to the manager and they went above and beyond to accommodate us but by this point we were all too upset to stay. We did however go to the top and we really enjoyed the view. The lobby of the tower was disappointing. It kind of reminded me of China town. It was bare and had a lot going on and felt disorganized. Paying the couple bucks to ride top is really worth it.

“Not all that exciting”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I wasn't impressed with this attraction. It was extremely windy the day we were there, so I didn't go to the outside "porch." Good place to take photos, however.
