Even tho a limited menu we were 6 people and everyone found something to order. All good was excellent. Good size portions, nice presentation, delicious. Never been there other then Monday night burger night. Good variety for everyone. A definite return visit in the near future. Waiter was pleasant, accommodating and couldn’t have been nicer. Think his name was Bob. Not sure but he said he’s been there 30 years.

Been here many times and the food and service are always great! Since covid they have moved tables to banquet hall which is fine only suggestion I have would be to make the lighting a little dimmer it feels like you’re eating in a cafeteria because it’s so bright in there . Ambiance is not warm.

Fantastic place with great service! Beautiful views. Quiet and great food! Especially during this fabricated pandemic that has all restaurant seating in parking lots the Sycamore Grill has by far the best setup for outdoor dining at such a time like this. I recommend them 1000%

The bartender, Malia absolutely makes the whole experience worthwhile for us. Especially in a time like this, when places are short staffed, having an employee like Malia is an asset to any organization, but in the entertainment/food service industry, it's a "must have."

We called the day before to be sure I could get special food due to allergies. The responder said he talked to the chef and there was no problem. When we got there, we were asked with whom we had spoken with the day before. There seemed to be a misunderstanding with the kitchen. The person who inquired about my diet on Wednesday was only somewhat polite. If we take the time to call, I think it would be a good idea to follow through without any problems or questions.

The setting is lovely. The servers were pleasant, and the food was good with very ample portions. We would have liked the dishes spaced out. Appetizers, salads, and entees all came out together. Also, we wished there were more seafood selections on the menu. All in all, we will return. It was a nice dining experience.

Nice place but understaffed. Menu is basic and effort is made in the presentation. I would not say this is award-winning food by any means as the menu is pretty basic. Mediocre place. it’s not a bad spot.as goid as any diner. Id say its Good for a quick beer and a burger.
