“you have GOT to try this place!!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

We were headed to Sheldon and came across this place in Orange City. (I love happy little accidents like this). We had no idea what we were in store for. The décor was so cool and the young lady we had as a server was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and upbeat/happy.......definitely Midwest! Loved her personality.... The dry rub was exceptional and the other items we had (which you will need a "to go" box for) were excellent.

“Great Food”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

My wedding party went there for lunch the day of the wedding. The lounge was closed we we ate in the smaller section. It was a great experience. The food was well prepared. Given the large group the food actually came out pretty fast. None of us had to wait long. The chips they served with the meal are delicious. I would definitely go back again.

“Up and coming”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Wine selection is ok. Mixed drinks done well. The place specializes in smokehouse and barbecue dishes. All are good. The smoked Mac and cheese is an adult and kid favorite. Overall, good place to go. The atmosphere is nice but the over use of angel statues is a little disturbing.

“Orange City delight”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We drove an hour to indulge our whim for the Blue Mountain Smokehouse. The decor is fascinating and the food lovely and the wine outstanding. It's so worth the drive.

“Not what it was.”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Enjoyed fine dining and good service on previous occasions since 2008. Tonight's experience was markedly different on every level. Menu items were still listed but quality was far less than what had been served in the past. Hostess attributed the intended changes to a new chef. If the menu does not taste the same then it just goes to reason the menu should be revised to not mislead those who are expecting consistency. Of our four entrees, two were truly flavorless, one was actually cold, the fourth was way over seasoned. Breadsticks were missed at our table ( but came with the same dish served to other diners within view) and our beverage order was nearly forgotten. All in all, a saddening experience for all of us, but very much so for our son as he raved about this place and wanted to treat us to an impressive dinner. Not worth the time or money, despite a 12% discount and a gift certificate we will likely never use. Bring back the quality and service we anticipated or we certainly won't return.
