“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

We had a nice dinner last night at the Switchback Grille. The setting is lovely and what a surprise to learn their seafood is flown in fresh daily! The salads are delicious, but huge! Had we known we would have asked to split one as we hate to have food wasted. I had the spinach salad and my husband had the Switchback salad..both were creative & delicious. For entrees I had the tuna and my husband had the halibut special. Both were spectacular, but our vegetables were stone-cold, and the fish was only lukewarm. Again, the portions are much too big!

“Poor value for the money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Service was excellent; unfortunately the food was barely average and for the cost, it was below average. My entree salad was pretty good, but for my family, the steak needed to be returned and the trout was evidently flavorless. The wine we ordered similarly was simply okay, but for the price we expected more. If we were to go again, we would try "easier" food, like beer and burgers!

“Decent food, but expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We decided to try Switchback for dinner since it was next to our hotel (Hampton Inn) and we were too tired to drive. The ambiance is on the swanky ranch style with starched linens and polished silverware. The staff is efficient and professional. Food service was a little on the slow side (20 minutes). Pricing is on the high side, especially the steaks (dry aged or not). 3 entrees and 1 salad about $170 no alcohol. The food was tasty and quality of ingredients was very good, perfectly cooked scallops and steaks. Overall a pleasant experience.
