Started off with some cocktails; a little pricey, but well balanced. Had some tasty non-alcoholic options too, which was nice. For mains, we had the fish and chips and the seafood pasta... again - pricey but satisfying.

After a long hike we stopped in for a drink and a quick bite. We sat down at the bar and met Fred the bartender. I told him I liked Gin, but I wasn’t sure what type of Gin drink I wanted. He said, “I...have a twist on the Tom Collins that I think you will love!” He pulled out the Gins and created a not only beautiful drink, but also the best tasting Gin drink I have ever had!! We popped back in a couple of days later and he remembered our names. It’s the people as much as the place that makes a vacation complete!More

Worst prime rib dinner I ever had. The prime rib itself was absolutely tasteless! The small and “roasted” potatoes looked like they were reheated from morning buffet and again totally tasteless. I will give them credit for the single piece of broccoli that they were...was able to cut into eight little pieces!! Gets better… when we order a $60 dollar bottle of wine from the wine list they brought us a different cheaper one. We only realize it when it tasted so bad we looked up the review and it was not even the right bottle. We let our server know and she took the tone shocked. Ya right. They did give us 20% off which was great but I would have thought the manager would have come out to express his/her dismay for the unethical switch of wine. Although there are tons of bad reviews for this restaurant, it appears we got the service and meal fitting for someone coming in with a gift certificate. I guess that is why they ask you to tell them up front when you are paying with a gift certificate. oh the dessert was darn good.More
