This is pretty much the only restaurant that served Sunday buffet brunch around that area. I was there at 11:30 and there was already a long line for food. The line was consistently long and the food was average the best. The best part was the omelette and craving stations which they served beef tenderloin. Unfortunately, they ran out of... More

Typical golf grill type of place with good test matches - ok for sandwiches and burgers but not much else. Service is pretty slow and erratic. Can be very noisy and crowded in bar area so if want quiet meal eat in dining room.

Delicious shrimp salad sandwich, very fresh with a bit of hard boiled egg and finely chopped celery (just like I want it). Served on a soft brioche roll. It came with a side salad that was also excellent. The herb vinaigrette dressing was restaurant made, slightly tangy, not too much. The mandarin crush was big and perfectly made. An excellent...

We have been quite a few times dining here, evenings, Sunday brunch, Easter and Mother's Day. The restaurant always has good food, friendly service and is clean. However, the Mother's Day brunch is far and above excellent. The food is fresh. There are many different dishes and stations. You won't wait long for food or ever worry about a dish... More

Today is our 24th anniversary and we wanted to have a special meal, but were very disappointed. We just left the restaurant and have to give it a low review - but not necessarily because of the quality of the food. The issue started with a long wait for service...it took.over an hour to get our entrees. They were not... More

This 4 rating is for the food only. After playing 18 holes in the swamp and on the moon we decided the food can't be worse than the track......and we were right. I had a perfectly cooked BBQ burger with bacon and coleslaw. Absolutely delicious burger! A great way to end a day where you feel taken by the awful... More

Get a window seat because the view is very nice, looking over the golf course . The staff keep things clean and fresh and there is a low table with children's food as well. Good bloody Mary, large selection of food and pleasant waiters.

We attended an outdoor wedding here. The view is spectacular and the food was excellent. There was plenty of staff which made everything run smooth and in a timely manner. No one was left waiting for their food. This is also a nice place to sit and have a drink and look out over the mountains.

Very nice ambiance with views overlooking a golf course. Noise level is appropriate for conversations. Service was excellent. Food was great.

Beautiful scenery, but service was very slow. Dinner took 2 hours, however this was a Monday night. The disappointing aspect of the evening was the scallop entree my father ordered. 2 small scallops on a smear of basil purée. That's it. $25. That would be fine for a high end culinary fusion at some hip joint, but this is Mountain... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review. I apologize that the manager on duty did not come and speak with you personally, I will certainly discuss it with her. Our scallops are fresh and as was badly communicated to you, are priced accordingly. Sorry you were disappointed, let us buy you an appetizer next time... More
