The wait was 1 1/2 hours. Food was pretty good. I expected it to be a little more like top restaurant food but was more like Cracker Barrel Food but was good. My husbands prime rib was dry and small. The Women's bathroom was very small. 3 stalls and you wait for 5 to 10 minutes. Trash an overflowing and no soap. You bumped into someone when you opened stall door. The grounds were beautiful. Ideal place for wedding in separate area.

a 10 minute drive from Mt. Airy and worth the drive. The restaurant is very relaxing and friendly. The bartender was very helpful about what is good on the menu and also interesting tips about the area.

The noise level was ridiculous. It was so loud you couldn't hear the person next to you. There were several ridiculously loud parties but management was no where to be seen and didn't seem to care. Food was average. Nothing great. The only reason we went was the beautiful venue. Waitresses weren't interested in anything but taking our order to get us out of there. We had to ask to order an appetizer. The bill was a scratch pad they had taken our order on. It was way more than we expected. When we asked for an ITEMIZED bill they said they couldn't provide one. We found out for a party of 7 people they charged us a huge tip. I know there's not a lot of places to eat in the area but we will find somewhere else next time.

We arrived at 5pm on Sat. Feb. 8, 2014 and told it would be a 40 min. wait. 1 hour and 5 minutes later we were finally seated. We ordered steaks,potatos and tossed salads. While waiting for our appetizer a hostess would walk around the dining area with a very loud walkie talkie radio that blasted out names of customers to be seated that was very disruptive, this went on for the entire time we were there. When our food arrived the steaks were over cooked,tough and chewy and barely able to swallow. They tasted like low quality. The salads and potatoes were fine and the waitress is prompt, nice and helpful but meal was not worth the trip or the wait and price. Bottom line don't waste your time or money on this place its way over rated. We won't ever come back and advise others not to go either.
