Sat by the window overlooking the creek. Very serene and relaxing. Steaks are cut to order at table. Pretty neat as this was first time seeing that. Service was fast and attentive. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Great dinner and experience.

We did have a nice meal here but nothing outstanding. It seemed as if they really believe in cheese sauce and put it over several things. Our server was excellent - wish I could remember her name. We didn’t know they weren’t open for lunch...More

My sister and brother-in-law are both vegetarian and they enjoyed the salad bar and baked potato. By the way this is not my restaurant so I do not know if it is affiliated with the one in Boone. Hope this helps.
