We arrived on time for our 7pm reservation. Our reservation had been made 30 days in advance, but we were given a table in the basement next to the restroom. We ordered drinks, three of us ordered the same drink, and when it was delivered, it was not what we ordered. The waiter took care of it though. We ordered appetizers and they were yummy and arrived in a timely manner. Then, we waited over a hour for our main course. We realize that this is an upscale dining experience,and that usually means a more relaxed time frame, but the problem was that our waiter disappeared during this time. We each had only one drink the whole time we were there, which tells anyone who knows us that we just did not have the opportunity to order more. By the time our food arrived we had decided to eat, go back to our hotel and finish our drinking there. I had the tenderloin medallions and it was delish, We talked to management as we were leaving, but the manager didn't seem to care. At least they had complimentary valet parking, so we were able to park for the price of a tip. That was nice. We were a party of 8. Too bad about the service, we had heard very good recommendations before we booked here.

Popped in for a late lunch and had the place to ourselves. Some interesting menu options - would have loved to try a little of everything! Food was excellent, real homestyle feel, Tried the roasted garlic stuffed beef tenderloin and it was flavourful and cooked perfectly. The wife had the meatloaf which was great along with a side of the white truffle mac n cheese, excellent!

We had high hopes for Lonesome Dove and were excited to try some unique dishes. Unfortunately, we left disappointed. There just wasn't a lot of flavor and excitement in most of what we tried. I was most disappointed in the hominey, I barely ate a fourth of this and felt like it was never going to end. We brought my nieces and they really like the sliders. The entrees were perfectly acceptable but just nothing special. I was expecting much more.

This is a place for special occasions since it is on the pricey side. Although it was expensive, the food was fabulous, especially the Elk Burger appetizer.....really outstanding! Had the Roasted Garlic Stuffed Beef Tenderloin and it was flavorful and cooked to perfection. Absolutely recommend this place if you are prepared to pay at the high end.

Loved this place. Friendly staff and a unique menu. Really loved the atmosphere, really feels like Texas. Rattlesnake sausage rocked.
