Well trained and friendly staff. One guest at our table accidentally knocked over his water glass. Sympathetic staff quietly moved us to another table and promptly delivered more water.

We thought our dinner experience was great. our reservation was honored immediately. The waitress was so sweet and attentive and asked us for our drink orders right away. One area of our table was dirty with some sticky residue, and the waitress quickly went to clean it. The onion soup we all ordered came out promptly and was absolutely delicious. The rest of the meal was served shortly after and was equally delicious. Food was great and so was the service for a great affordable price. We will be back.

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.

We had a delicious meal but felt sorry for our server. He was the only server working that night. He did an excellent job especially being the only server and other customers were giving him a hard time because the patio was closed. One couple was obviously annoyed because of the wait to get their food. Again the server was excellent and good delicious. Unfortunate there is such a staff shortage.

Menu is too small based on prior pandemic experience and price is too high. Service is getting better with more help.

The setting of the restaurant is very appealing overlooking the gold course. Tables are nicely spaced and the menu selection was varied. I would recommend this restaurant.

The restaurant was quite noisy while we’re there, we had to speak loudly in order for others at the table to hear.

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."
