The food was good but it took a long time just to order and much longer to get the food. It was pretty chaotic even though there weren't that many people in the restaurant. The staff was very friendly though.

Ate here for the first time. Right when I walked in the door my impression went sour. They were very busy and people were obviously waiting. We stood there for about 10 minutes and many employees walked by without acknowledging us. Big big mistake after 10 minutes we were finally greeted, too late. Dinner was ok and way overpriced and...

They have gourmet burgers that are fantastic. The tiki burger is my favorite. They have a wide variety of well prepared and seasons dishes to offer. The have a room full of infused olive oil and balsamic vinegars. They are phenomenal! BlackBerry, ginger balsamic is to die for! You get a great value with this place

We arrived in town Wednesday of the Thanksgiving Holiday. It had been a year since our last visit and we were tired and just wanted to enjoy a nice relaxing night. The food was very good but the service was spotty for no apparent reason since the restaurant was not crazy busy. We were not on a time schedule so... More

Thank you for the feedback. The entire day before the holiday surprised us with many larger groups, which can sometimes make things operate like those "crazy busy" times. Our apologies if that reflected upon any part of your visit. We thought it seemed our staff was doing well juggling the challenges of the situation. We wish you would have felt... More

Came here with family. It was a Saturday night and it was very loud and very busy. The service was slow and my wife ordered a steak medium well came rare and we had to send it back twice. It was still very red. On a positive note the olive oil and vinegar bar has a wonderful selection.

Excellent food at the Pheasant Restaurant and Lounge in Brookings, SD. We made a point to go early to dinner and ask for the early bird specials. The pork dinner is superb-a nice piece of pork cooked to perfection, and the taco salad is good too. The best part was the dessert. The almond chocolate cheesecake was wonderful. One note:... More

This is not my most favorite place to go in Brookings. It is very nice and the staff is friendly. Just not our style. They offer a great selection of wines and variety of menu selections. Definitely something to try.
