Great location with a great decor. The terrace had a great fire pit on the upper level. Food was medium. I had the burger. It was flavorless. I didnt even want to finish it (something i never do). My wife had the grilled salmon sandwich. She liked it. We had the corn on the cob. It was good but not worth 5$! The waiter was probably the worst ive ever seen. Nice guy but couldnt answer our questions. He didnt know the menu and did not know how to serve a bottle of wine. The oter staff made up for it though... Overall i think i would go back, but i would ask for a different waiter, and not have the burger.

We got breakfast vouchers from the High Peaks Resort. We liked the breakfast food: my husband fell in love with their eggs benedict. We decided to go there for dinner too: everrything we ate was tasteful and plentiful (huge portions) at reasonable prices. It is not a fancy place, but they cook well and the prices do not break your wallet.

Poor to mediocre compared to other places in town. You can't even use the fact that they have outdoor seating as an upside, because so many restaurants have this available. The prices were high, and my steak was wayyyy over cooked. Our "chips and Salsa" appetizer for $7 consisted of 43 tortilla chips and a small bowl of cheap salsa. I might go back, but only if my girlfriend wants to.

Stopped by on the way in town, saw the nice terrace and decided to have a snack and drink. Looked at the menu by the door, seems great. Head up to the terrace to be told it,s a different and limited menu.....oh well. The waiter, Jimmy ? very kind and helpful, thanks. Nice views. Didn't eat finally.
