I popped my head in to see if they could accommodate a party of five for dinner....they had us make a reservation and return in an hour despite the restaurant being half full. The bar is top noch with some interesting wine choices as well as knowing how to mix cocktails. The receptionist up front was slightly clueless and had to keep running to the kitchen for seating instructions. Our waitress was friendly, but was only one of two on staff, and seemed somewhat overwhelmed.
Food is billed as fine dining. It was good. Not great. Rib eye was slightly overcooked but well seasoned. The fish was a little bland (they had run out of the salmon and were substituting something else). The pasta my son and I split was adequate, though they forgot the chicken and then had to bring it out to be added (and it was clearly cooked in a hurry...seared black and dry). Kids choices were very limited.
The kitchen was noticeably overwhelmed. It took close to an hour for us to get our entrees despite their having a limited menu and our having ordered nothing terribly difficult. As mentioned previously, part of the order was incorrect. Desert for the kids took another 1/2 hour, and the bill coming out was slow, stretching our experience past one hour and a half. Prices were reasonable, and the food (excepting the errors in our order) was good (not great...have had better). The decor is interesting and has a real pioneer feel to it. Garden patio is nice on a warm day, though wear mosquito spray if in the summer.
Given the limited options in Groveland, it's not a bad place to dine...the food itself is A. O.K.. But, unless they were having an off day when we went, be prepared for possibly a long wait for dinner and to finish up. Be careful when ordering to make sure they get your order right.
