Went to a wedding reception in their banquet room. Highly recommend. The food was fantastic and the banquet room was beautiful. Perfect place for a reception.

Had a good lunch here, cheeseburgers and grilled cheeses, food was good and well cooked. Prices were high though, $67 for 4 people. Still, one of the best lunches we had on our trip.

We had dinner there and the food was good but the service was lacking. Our waitress didn't seem to know specifics of the menu items, or what beers were on tap. She didn't come around much either, and the restaurant was not busy.

We loved our stay at Golden Arrow, however, our experience for breakfasts at the Generations were in line with the reviews of poor service on Trip Advisor. We found everyone pleasant, but were quite surprised the level of inattention to customers during quieter periods, with the level of staff in the restaurant. Understanding staff have various roles and responsibilities, does not excuse customers not being recognized. Our meals were quite nice, however, the discomfort of seeing people up and leave around us for not being served, seeing customers seek out wait staff, only to continue to wait for their service requests, does not leave a good impression or experience for other customers. Being busy was not an excuse. The staff seemed experienced, just seemingly inattentive and not concerning enough about the general experience of the customers. I would go back, but we will specifically request to be close to the kitchen to ensure attention is given.

First let me apologize for your experience in the restaurant. During the week that you were visiting we had an influx of college students leave for school, and new staff taking their place. Unfortunately we were short staffed this day.

Please keep in mind that we server virtually thousands of customers each year, and most of them we do not hear from on tripadvisor with their positive dining experiences. We take pride in our menus and dining space and do our best to make everyone who enters our door a repeat customer. We certainly hope to see you again in your future travels.

Best,
Sara

We ate here at lunch time. The service was disappointing. We watched as dirty tables sat there for the entire time that we were there without being cleared or cleaned. Our server seemed to forget we existed. The paper napkins had a stain in there from where the cutlery shielded it from the sun. There seemed to be no shortage of staff, but certainly a shortage of interest in customers. We wouldn't return there.

There is no excuse for inattentive service. Please in an instance such as this seek out the manager. We always have a manager on duty that would be happy to help in a situation like this, and welcome another chance to make things right.

Best,
Sara
