“Other reviews inaccurate - wonderful, tasty dishes and beautiful outdoor patio view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

The other reviews are completly and wholly uncharacteristic of this restaurant, which my family and I frequent often. The food is always excellent and the menu offers a great variety. I have NEVER had a bad meal at the Cider House or a meal I had to send back - and if I did I doubt the manager would be rude. To the contrary, the manager (who I believe is part owner as well) is friendly, charasmatic, and hard working. He always strikes up a conversation with you at the end of the meal and makes sure to ask how everything was. The rest of his staff are friendly as well. I am a longtime resident of Altamont - Friday nights are the who's who of Altamont - everyone is there because they know the food is great and consistent and there is nothing better than having a meal on the beautiful patio with scenic views on a summer night. All around, this is a wonderful family restaurant with atasty menu. The ribs, the salads, the burgers, steak, and all of their specials - the menu has a bit of everything, and the flavor of every dish I have tried is great. The other reviews are just not characteristic of what this restaurant truly is - an Altamont gem- and so I felt compelled to share my views.

“Quality of food is inconsistent”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2011

been there a few times and quality of the food and level of service is always different. Ask for meat to be well done and it comes out rare.
Sending it back results in waiting a long time for the food to come back. Manager of restaurant has an attitude, the kitchen and staff are always right, paying customer is wrong.
