Attended a class reunion in Aug 2016 and the food was excellent. Staff was very helpful and the chef prepared a special vegan dish.

Wonderful staff and food. We were regulars for dinner and then had our wedding reception there. Family run and family feel. We go there a lot.

decent food at a decent price. Not a formal dining experience but rather a comfortable setting for a pleasant meal with friends.

Having read that this was a top-rated restaurant by Trip Advisor, we made it a point to stop in. We were early to arrive (4:30 PM), and immediately greeted by Nate and shown to a table. Both food and service were as advertised in a rustic setting. If we had it to do again at the same time, I believe... More

After reading the reviews prior to coming to this restaurant, my wife & I had high hopes, but, that was not the case because, we left very disappointed and felt like we were taken advantage of. My wife had ordered the chicken cutlet [very small boneless cutlet] dinner with mushrooms which was drenched in burgundy wine. I mean it seemed... More

We started our meal w/the homemade chicken tortilla soup - piping hot & delicious, seasoned perfectly. My husband then had the Ceasar salad - so tasty. My husband & I both had the prime rib (medium) done to perfection & mouth wateringly scrumptious! We both opted for the linguini w/butter & garlic - seasoned perfectly & pasta was al dente... More

When my husband and I first started dating 34 years ago we had dinner one night at the Lookout House. For several years we ate there on a regular basis. Following marriage and relocating, we still continue to visit the Lookout House once or twice a year for dinner. It has never disappointed us. The servers are great, the food... More

We had the duck and the veal francese, both meals were average but not disappointing. The service was warm, friendly and efficient. Was not impressed with their bread, a bit tough. We loved the warm atmosphere.
