We stayed at Eagle Ridge for a long weekend and, of course, this was an easy choice to try this joint for supper. The atmosphere is a mixture of restaurant w/ a dance floor ( occupied by a ping pong table during the earlier evening hours), large bar area and an upstairs w/ a variety of arcade games for kids = family friendly during the day and early evening hours. They don't have a large menu selection, but what they have was good and even my 7year old found food to his liking. Nice wine and beer selection too. I found it to be reasonably priced in the off season. I would definitely go back there. My only complaint was that we were there over MEA weekend along with a lot of other folks and this place didn't plan the appropriate number of staff they needed for the amount of business that was there.

Good food and nice views! Medium priced and friendly staff, however the day we were there one poor gal was waiting on all the tables because no one else showed up to work; consequently our wait to even be seated was longer than it should have been.

We have eaten here many times. This time we tried the whiskey sirloin and it was excellent. There is a new chef here. We look forward to his future creations.

Although frequently closed at off season when we visit, we like to sit on the deck and observe the fall view. The same manager and waitstaff have been there and service is alway good. Lunches are tasty and feature regional items. Great wild rice soup!

We were lucky to be there when "Bump" (formally of Gear Daddies) & local musicians were playing...felt guilty for not having bought a ticket to watch. Great music, good service, and stiff drinks :-)
