We had dinner here on Halloween & watched the end of a beautiful sunset. The hostess was most gracious & we were seated immediately altho when I called ahead I was told there may be a wait since we didn't have a reservation (it never did fill up but it was busy). Our waiter came to the table & made some recommendations for dinner as we ordered our drinks. They had a great wine special, first glass full price, 2nd glass 12 cents (or something close to that).
We asked our waiter about the 21st Anniversary Specials on the menu which were very low priced & he told us most emphatically that we would be better off ordering from the "specialties of the house" menu since those dishes were more interesting & showed the chef's creativity.
Since we were scouting out the restaurant as a possible locale for an upcoming group event we decided to order 1 dish from the anniversary special & 1 dish from the "specialties" dinner menu. I ordered the top sirloin & lobster for $17 & my honey ordered the Black & Blue Tenderloin for $25. We split a spinach salad for $7 - the salad was on the small side for the price & wasn't anything to rave about. Then our meals came...my steak was cooked as ordered & was a little chewy as I would expect for a sirloin...the lobster tail was a little undercooked but I figured it was better than overcooked & it tasted fine.
The tenderloin arrived as ordered & was a generous size but it seemed to be the same cut of meat as my top sirloin altho it was supposed to be tenderloin - it was tougher than I would expect for that cut. The black & bleu sauce was OK. The scalloped potatoes that came on my plate were good, the tenderloin plate some sort of mashed potatoes w/cheese or something...they tasted OK but were liquidy. We opted out of dessert since we couldn't decide on something to share.
Overall we thought the setting & the service were nice altho we thought it was interesting that the waiter really did his best to talk us out of ordering from the anniversary menu. There are many other similarly priced restaurants with more interesting & better dinner fare.
We decided that if we decide to book our group event we will do their breakfast or lunch so we can enjoy the view of the mountains & watch the airplanes.
The piano player was good & it was just barely audible where we sat. It appears that he is quite popular & draws a group of folks in for happy hour that seem to know each other well.
Heads up - there is no handicap access, only two sets of stairs. The carpeted spiral stairs from the airport lobby are better than the industrial stairs for those unsteady on their feet.
