Food was unique and delicious. I ordered the wild game of the day, which happened to be antelope, knocked my socks off! The only hiccup here was a weird charge on our final bill (at check-out) that was not ours which JW cleared up.

If you want great food and great service then this is the place to go. Not to mention the bottomless Mimosa's. Live music was a piano player very relaxing atmosphere. Enjoy!

So to start, we live about a mile from the JW and 18 Oaks. We have seen the ups and downs of the restaurant and they're definitely on a "down". We made reservations to celebrate a family "win" and were excited to dine outside. We arrived, and the hostesses had no clue as to what was happening around them. They... More

Michaelericcarter, I have shared your feedback with the Chef about the cut of steak you received during your last visit. I wanted to apologize for the falling short in meeting your expectations and ours. As you know from your previous 6 visits, quality of beef is something we take very serious and hang our hat on. I can also commit... More

The good was absolutely fantastic. I'm a tiny tiny bit of a snob and can be rather critical when the price gets 'interesting'... no room for such complaints here. The staff was excellent and efficient but not over bearing. The food bone in Prime was perfect and I didn't leave anything but the bone. Very nice set up here. Single... More

Ate there for dinner on a Friday night. Service was very good. Steak was good. Side items and dessert were ok to poor. Expected much better but this is just a typical bad restaurant at a hotel

Our server Charles was excellent. Very attentive and professional. He made some great suggestions for dinner. We all shared "wedge" salads and they were excellent -very big portions and large enough for two to share. Our steaks were done to perfection. The large filet was large enough to share and the side of asparagus was big enough for the four... More

Fantastic service! Our waiter, Rick, was wonderful! But the highlight was the dining room attendant, Joshua. He really went above and beyond to meet our every need!

The staff here is super friendly and efficient, they get 5 stars. The food is fine, was not bad, just more of what you would get at an mid to upscale chain restaurant like a BJ's or something like that. I think because it is a hotel restaurant, it is probably more casual than going out in the city. Was... More
