“overpriced for food that is served cold”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

outside was nice but the food was cold.. the children's food was so hot that we had to let it sit for quite some time t=before they could eat it.. so one wold think that all the food would be serve hot, nope not the case!! when the first words out of a servers mouth is that the plate is extremely hot that can only mean one thing..it was sitting under the heating lamps for a long period of time. food was lukewarm and for the price the least the could do is serve it hot... not in a hurry to return to an overpriced overrated restaurant!!!

“A hidden gem of casual outdoor fun!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

We have dined inside @ the Mountain springs several times in the past year. The food and service have been good, and they have good specials throughout the week.
We wanted to try the outdoor area which is shipwreck beachy decor, tropical whimsy and fun casual. The menu is good, ranging from typical bar food to specials (our special was lobster night, which seemed very popular). The food and service was good, no complaints.
It's a fun place to go w/ friends, family or out of towners. It is a bit hard to find, but worth the effort.
Our only suggestion would be an updated website giving the hours, specials, and menu. That info is not available online and although they may advertise in the paper (not sure, we do not get the paper).
Very enjoyable.....and outdoor dining is not abundant in this area....

“Feels like vacation!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Loved the outside atmosphere. It has such a vacation feel to it. It's a nice escape for a few hours, then back to reality. The service was great. The food was pretty good.
