I believe this is more of a 2.5 stars. I more than likely won't be back, but there were some good features. I do like the fact that I could make a reservation for two of us. Being a large tourist town, this was an important value added feature. We arrived at 6.30pm for our dinner date. The place was filling up pretty quickly and that concerned me a little bit. They have a large seated patio area and an outside bar. We opted to be seated inside. Many tables around us were also filled shortly there after.
They had a couple of specials listed on a separate postcard and a drink card as well. Our waitress was polite and informative. Definitely a career server. We ordered the marinated texas goats cheese appetizer. Double pork chop and a filet for the wifey, and a couple glasses of wine.
The goat cheese appetizer was a large serving with home made pepita flatbread. It was quite tasty and we made the conscious decision not to eat it all so we could enjoy the rest of our meal. Fresh bread was being brought to the table constantly as was the constant filling of our waters. A little irritating, but we didn't run dry that's for sure! Our entrees came out and they were impressively presented. We also got a side of Green Chile Mac and Cheese. My Ancho mashers were whipped nicely but unfortunately my chop was a little dry and overcooked. Our waitress mentioned they would prepare it medium. The meat closest to the bone was a little better, but overall it wasn't what I expected. Suzie's filet was cooked perfectly and had great flavor. The Mac & Cheese was creative but nothing out of the ordinary. I expected it to be a little more spicy than it was.
Overall, I couldn't help to feel that the kitchen got slammed with all the patrons being seated about the same time. The table across for us, a 6 top sent an entree back because it was cold and it took almost 45 minutes to get our entree from when we ordered. Our tab ended up being $109, which is where I definitely feel a little underwhelmed by our experience. It could of been a lot more, but like I mentioned we just had two glasses of wine. We may pop in and check out the bar scene when we are in town next time we'll see.
