Went on a Monday night; place was busy. Waitress was very attentive. They didn’t bring around the meats, which was fine with me after seeing reviews questioning the cleanliness of someone handling it. My filet melted in my mouth. My companion had a seafood dish....More

We each ordered the filet and shrimp with baked potatoes. Nothing was hot on our plates when our food arrived. I was also disappointed in the shrimp, they were very small. For the price of the meal I expected jumbo shrimp. They were also out...More

Ate here last night as we always do. Very good food. We even saw a bear in the creek from our table by the window. The food is solid but not Ruth Chris quality or anything. The salad bar is huge! The service was good...More

I have seen wedding groups downstairs before but it isn't a private area. I would call and see what they can do for you in one of the upstairs areas.

My sister and brother-in-law are both vegetarian and they enjoyed the salad bar and baked potato. By the way this is not my restaurant so I do not know if it is affiliated with the one in Boone. Hope this helps.
