“not overly impressed...”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

This was our first time eating at Fort Mulligan's and we wouldn't recommend it or even go back.
I had a strawberry daquiri, not sure how you mess that up, but they did!!
My husband & I both ordered the cajun chicken Penne. He ate his and said it was very spicy, I didn't even finish mine becuase I didn't think there was any flavor. I normally like spicey more than he does...but he finally took a bite of mine and agreed, there was no flavor at all. We complained to the wait staff because they made them both at the same time and were so different. Staff didn't care. Cool atmosphere but wouldn't go back. The other two we were with had sandwiches and fries and they said it was okay but nothing great either.

“Food was amazing service deffinatley lacking!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We went there on a Friday night about 7:30 and ordered our food we had 2 appetizers and between the 5 ladies 4 filets and 1 prime rib plus 10 beers we were anticipating leaving a 50 dollar tip for our server but she was very cold to us and not friendly at all. We had the manager come over who was super sweet but we were still disapointed at the service.

“saturday supper”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

great place to watch a football game and even better place to have a dinner. After a walk in the area, stopped there for a snack and beer and later returned with my husband for dinner that Saturday night

“Reasonably priced and tasty”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

This place was packed on a Saturday early afternoon. We were seated and served quickly. Our food was good. 2 adults and 2 kids ate for under $30... That's cheaper than Panera! Wait staff was super friendly, too.

“It was okay”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

It was okay and you should probably try it. Interesting building with huge wooden beams. The french onion soup must be taste buds of the beholder because we were not impressed, it was okay. Ordered fillet mignon medium rare, got medium well, glad I ordered it smothered in onions and mushrooms. Sauted vegetables were good. Does have a nice beer list. Must not have deserts as we were not asked if we wanted any. Overall it was okay.
