We live in the area and ate here for the first time last night; and while the wait staff was excellent, the food was, well, weird. Now I realize that being a foodie in trendy but I think they are trying too hard. They have...More

I am a snob so I don't tend to think much of restaurants in hotels, especially nondescript highway roadside places. Garlic Poet was one of the best meals I've had in a while and I was totally not expecting that! The staff is quick to...More

This is like a farm to table restaurant. Many options offered. Everyone in our group enjoyed their dinners. I had a pork tenderloin with a cherry sauce that was incredible! Highly recommend this restaurant which was a delightful surprise inside a hotel!

Very unusual menu - look it up before going. We got the most "normal " things on the menu, and they were great! Great beers! Beautiful setting and our server was excellent. We'd go again.

Some of the food was way too weird for me. They brought me some green mashed potatoes with my dinner. Yuk! They advertised Yukon Gold I believe, but these taters were greener than a freshly mashed avocado, and spiced with some unnatural seasonings. Maybe it's...More
