“Lunch with a senior group.”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

They gave us good service and went out of their way to make sure everyone was satisfied with their meal. Sometimes when dealing with seniors we can be a little picky but they were great to us.

“Better Called a Step BELOW”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Would not recommend this place at ALL ! Stopped in Sunday night before Labor Day. One table with customers in the restaurant and a group of people drinking wine in the Wine area. Walked in and waited to see someone to direct us where to sit. Finally stuck my head around the cash register to get someone's attention. The young man (who apparently works in the kitchen) said just sit anywhere, and I asked him - I assume someone will wait on us ? and he just chuckled. After sitting about 10 minutes , we went back to the cashier stand and asked if someone could wait on us.... Finally a waitress appeared ...for us, the second table in the restaurant and we ordered burgers and water. She then disappears again, and we wait another 10 minutes, and I went up to the cashier area , again, and asked the young man drinking coke If we might have some water, because apparently the waitress forgot. At that point the waitress apparently saw me at the cashier station , as she comes down and asks if I needed something, - No thank you I told her, I can get my own water. So the 8.99 burgers finally come , and our well done burger is pink inside, so apparently the cooks don't get understand that a well done burger is not pink inside. Fries were obviously sitting around a bit. As we were eating 2 more tables came in and had to flag someone down to get waited on. Incidently, we spoke to the couple next to us who had just wasted $21 for each steak and were emphatic that they would never come back again as the food and the service was not worth it. Another annoying bit in the restaurant is a alarm , like a smoke alarm, that goes off when someone walks in the door. Ok, but no one EVER comes up to see who has come in, so apparently the sole purpose is to annoy customers with the shrill noise. Another ewww-factor is the uni-sex restroom -- Yes complete with NO locking door, I had to go back and have someone guard the door, as the closet sized restroom has 2 toilets with a wall between them and no stall doors.... Also the new Wine Bar, appears to attract the campers who can get obnoxious and walk back to the campground. Don't expect a cozy atmosphere here. The oddest thing is the sign above the outside door says Fine Dining and cocktails... Don't believe that for one minute. !!! Place seemed like it was run like a 'Frat' House by teenagers ! Can't remember the last time we DID NOT tip... but there was no way we were going to tip here.
