My family really enjoyed this place. We happened to be staying next door so came upon it on accident. The filet mignon was perfect, and the fish dinners just as good. The staff was friendly and helpful. Would recommend

Leo, I'm sorry our prices weren't quite what you were looking for. We serve only USDA prime beef which is more expensive, but represents the top 3% of beef in the US market. Our aim is high quality meals and a unique dining experience. Also,...More

We just got into Springdale and decided to try this place. The ambience is very nice, and our server Erin was friendly and professional. They brought a bread to the table that looked enticing but had little flavor. The dipping sauce tasted like pure balsamic,...More

We made our reservations for 3 on the same day. I made it through Open Table. We were there the week after the Forth of July. If the park is really busy you might have to make it a few days before. I hope that helps.

It is summer time and families are traveling. We visited in June and although it was busy, we were seated quickly. It is best to make reservations during Spring Break and summer.
