Food is usually very good but pricey live entertainment at night some days great views of the lake and liquor selection to choose from feels like you're enjoying an upscale meal with the service which is usually very good

Views are spectacular, food is alright. The one thing I do not recommend ordering is the she-crab soup. It made me incredibly nauseous and I couldn't finish the rest of my dinner. Packed it to go and the New York strip and mash au jour...More

Beautiful setting at the Inn of the Mountain Gods. Service was prompt. We had reservations for a concert and wanted to have dinner before so time was important. Our waiter took appropriate note of that and made sure we had ample time to enjoy dinner...More
