My husband and a friend of ours have birthdays two days apart, so we often do something special together to celebrate. This year the four of us and another couple went to Henderson Castle.
It was a fun experience, but the food wasn’t as ‘wow’ as we expected it to be, given the price point.
Many of us ordered steaks and a king crab leg. The steaks were all decent sized and ‘good’, but not as melt-in-your-mouth as some we have had for far less money. The ‘king crab legs’ were considerably smaller in diameter than we expected them to be too. I would not have ordered one ($19/ea) had I known in advance.
They had run out of mint sauce, but failed to inform the waitress, so she wasn’t able to inform us at the time we ordered. My husband and another member of our party ordered the lamb... which was a CONSIDERABLY smaller portion size than the other menu items—3 lollipop sized pieces of meat—ridiculous! (It was far from a happy b-day meal!!)
On the positive side of things, the wait staff were friendly, quick and able to answer all of our questions. The gentleman that brought our drinks was particularly helpful and offered to tell us ghost stories in the bar after dinner. It sounded like fun, but we didn’t end up staying, as half our group were eager to leave after the negative meal experience.
I doubt we will return.
