“Thumbs down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

What a disappointment, 1st & last visit.Several entrees not available, fair quality, very overpriced, slow service- only 1 other table occupied. Appetizers were ok, my filet was very good topped with a scant amount of dry crab imperial. My husband had a pitifully thin overdone steak,with 2 scallops on top. Only 2 dessert selections we all passed. Surprised it is still in business!

“Over Rated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

We were taken in by the photos on the web. The Service was good. They did not have a few of the menu items we were going to try, Prime Rib being one. The lady ordered Shrimp linguini in pesto garlic. It had absolutely no taste. It was not worth the money spent. But I see from other reviews its good. This was our take on it. Try for yourself.

“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was right near the hotel we were staying and easily accessible. I had the chicken marsala and it was very good! I would recommend since it offers something more than the standard chain restaurant!

“What a Valentine Anniversary Treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

I love the Chateaubriand Bouquetiere (Dinner for 2) It's a large filet cooked to perfection, dutchess potatoes and Fresh veggies! The atmostphere is World Rustic and you feel like you could be in Europe dining. Give it a try. I understand they also have a $6.99 lunch buffet.
