“Very popular restaurant served average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

This restaurant is among the most popular venue with local residents and quite busy. Servers were mature ladies who were knowlegeable about their offerings. Nevertheless, the food, which was quite abundant, failed to impress. Steaks were not particularly tender or tasty, pasta with seafood had very nice scallops and shrimp and lots and lots of linguine. Baked potatoes were over-cooked and dry but accompanied by lots and lots of butter/sour cream/bacon bits, etc. Chicken Parmesan featured many chicken breasts and lots of spaghetti. Tomato salad offered an entire heirloom tomato merely cut in half. All things considered, the prices were pretty high. Our table of 9 had a good time in conversation but not because of the cuisine.

Excellent foot; ambiance is intimate; service and presentation is excellent. Love the lamb chops - they are always done perfect.

“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

One of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. Runyons bills itself as a 'fine dining' restaurant - which it is not! Overpriced food, VFW hall-like ambience and servers who are clearly annoyed at being there. With the least expensive dish being $25 (for chicken & rice which was dry and bland), there was no effort made as to the quality or presentation of the meal nor any focus on creating a 'fine dining' atmosphere (ie; white table cloths, 'white glove' service, etc). How this establishment has stayed in business for this length of time defies explanation. Apparently, their patrons, as well as the owner(s), are clueless as to what qualifies as a good meal at a good restaurant. I will never eat there again. Once was enough!

“Old”

This place's heyday was like 30 years ago...if you're under 55 years old you won't enjoy this place. If you want to live in the past then maybe
