“Dinner to 2”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

My husband and I went here tonight for a special dinner for two. I have nothing but praise for the food. The service was good but not excellent. We initially sat outside but the outside seating is over the top of the golf cart barn. They were being washed with a power washer and it smelled of exhaust. We then went inside instead. The interior is nice but it was anything to write home about. I expected the price to be high so that was no surprise. If you are looking for an excellent meal and don't mind an OK atmosphere then you will like this place. I would go again.

“Go!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Food here is quite good. Expensive for lunch, not as much for dinner relatively speaking. That's 'cause the menu for lunch and dinner is similar. Nice northern Italian cuisine. Best of all on a nice day during the summer overlooking the golf course.

“High Price but Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

The Cafe on the Green is a great place to go after a long day of golfing or hiking on the trail. It has a great view of the entire park and good tasting food!

The only problem is how expensive the food is! It isn't something completely insane, but I find it hard to believe that they can charge that much for nachos. Regardless, every now and then I am willing to spend a little extra for the good taste and nice view and location!

“Fabulous food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

Everything we ordered was very good. The service was excellent. The w aiters are very attentive and made us feel comfortable. The salad was nice and green and fresh. The clams and the sauce was to die for. The rack of lamb was excellent and the wine sauce was perfect.

“You just can't go wrong here.”

Food is delectable, wait staff on point and when you have the acoustic guitar player softly playing anything from music from Oklahoma to Zeppelin's Kashmere without missing a beat, you're in heaven!
