Ate here for dinner because we were staying in hotel. Service was poor. Pricey. Husband ordered steak tartare after I told him not to do that. My dog eats better looking food. Returned it. Order the basics or lobster even though the menu has some progressive entrees.

We ate several meals at the Purple Thistle. Our dinners were excellent, especially the halibut and the lemon semifredo dessert. They don't rush you so dinners averaged 2 hours. We had a great server one night and a chatty server the next.

Breakfasts were good, though the service was uneven. Our second breakfast the server disappeared and we never got a coffee refill. The first morning our server was continually "reheating" my cup.

It doesn't matter where you sit because there are great views out both sides of the restaurant.

We were a group of 14 for dinner and the service was extremely poor and slow. Only one server to look after our table plus the others assigned to him. He forgot my lobster order and when it did come it was cold and a little tough. Interestingly we had dinner there the previous night and our server was great and the dinner again so-so. This is a Golf North managed facility now and this company just can't get the customer service process working. Such a shame for such a beautiful location

The restaurant was not crowded and we had a nice window table for two. I was annoyed by two pesky flies that buzzed us through out the meal...
