Description: Hagen's is clubhouse dining with a panoramic view of our Donald Ross Course. The restaurant is named for legendary golfer Walter Hagen who won the 1924 PGA Championship at the golf course. The menu features soups and salads to steaks and seafood. Guests can also sit at the expansive bar where gangster Al Capone was believed to have carved a message. Just don't sit in the wrong seat!

We read the reviews on TripAdvisor before selecting restaurants for our trip. Hagen's had excellent reviews, so we thought we would venture out. The atmosphere is great: Golf course casual. The service was great, too. Unfortunately, my sister's salad was a bit slimy and looked like the kitchen opened a bag, slopped it on a plate with a little red onion and called it a salad. We asked for another side instead and ordered the corn and crab chowder. It was ok, but had an overpowering dried rosemary taste. My mom and I shared a rack of ribs, which was tasty. The mashed potatoes that arrived with my ribs were cold to the touch. When my new potatoes came out, they were extremely dry and there was no gravy to help them out (I even asked for some). I also ordered the mushrooms and did not care for them. I did not send them back after sending my potatoes back...they just sat. I would not recommend going there for dinner. $78 for three people for a dinner that was less than average was a bit much.

“Nice Casual Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Great Ribs, great place for a nice dinner with kids. We had a party of 16 and the staff did a great job. We all enjoyed our meal. A great alternative to the higher priced steakhouse at the hotel.

Great baby back ribs. Good prices for the area. Very nice staff. The view of the course is beautiful and so peaceful. Outside dining is available if weather permits.

“Golf course alfresco lunch at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Attentive staff, great golf course fair. Try the reuben sandwich! Eat on the patio which overlooks the Donald Ross course (and, play a round - it's a nice, challenging course.)
