This is the best brunch (Saturday and Sunday) without question. $24- omelettes, smoked fish , prime rib etc and then excellent desserts. Definitely make a reservation.

Chosen completely at random and is now on the "map" for future stops. Well appointed with different dining areas and a full bar give you lots of choices. There was not a disappointed person in our party of four. Bacon wrapped scallops, clam chowder, bison burger and mesquite grilled chicken all fine perfectly. Give it a try.

Came highly recommend. Left highly disappointed. Service was poor. Had to keep asking for stuff. For example in line waiting for food, there were no dishes. When they came out finally it was a small pile with a line of people waiting. There are 2 seating for brunch so with everyone starting at the same time they can't handle the... More

Dear MrsSO613, I'm sorry to hear of your experience. As you can tell by our other reviews and our 13 years running as "Best of Hartford", it is not the norm. If you would be so kind as to call the restaurant and ask for Joy, we'd be more than happy to make amends. Best regards More

Went for dinner and were seated in the bar section where tables line the wall. It was a little noisier than the other sections, but we didn't mind. Waitress was very friendly and greeted us with a smile. The salad bar was well stocked with many items. Our steaks came out perfectly done and wonderfully seasoned. The restaurant has a... More

Went for brunch with my husband and expected it to be the best that we ever had...and it wasn't...it was not worth the price we paid ($30 per person and that's without the tip) Everything was the cheapest type of food that you could have and even the "lunch" part of the brunch was disgusting. All the people that were... More

Hi Steph C, Thank you for sharing your perspective, and I would like to clarify a few things. Brunch is $23.95 for an adult and $9.95 for children. Kids under 5 eat free. We make all of our food in-house (with the exception of a few dessert items), hand-cut our meat and fish and bake our own bread. We have... More

Had a reservation which in some places does not mean much on a busy Friday night but mine was no problem seated immediately. The salad bar and bread is a great start to a meal but a word of caution you can overeat and not have much room for your main course! When you order a steak after it is... More

Menu is not huge but the food is decent. Service whenever I have been there is good. Sundays they have a brunch which is very good. This restaurant is right off the highway (I-91).

Recently I visited the Dakota with my daughters volleyball team. Not all of us about 8 girls and 15 parents. We called ahead and when we arrived were seated right away. We explained to the writers that we were separate families and that we would like separate checks. We are a travel team and have done this countless times. We... More
