    I was honestly blown away at the food! The menu described does NOT do the food quality the service it deserves. We almost left because we thought it was just a burgers and beer kinda menu, but decided to stay and try it out . Ordered the cauliflower soup it was fantastic! Dinner we had the halibut and then polenta cakes and it was so delicious. We ordered the scallops for dessert 😂 Highly recommended

    We so enjoyed our table overlooking the creek and the overall ambiance at River Ranch Lodge. Asa, our server, and the other staff were friendly and welcoming. The food, however, was a bit of a disappointment, not bad but not what we expected for the prices. All considering, we had a lovely evening and would return.

    A delightful meal at Christy Hill. The chef's choice of ingredients was balanced and delicious. Everything was cooked perfectly and wanting more. It was an anniversary meal to remember!

    We went to Jake's for a birthday dinner. I had the macadamia nut crusted halibut and was cooked perfectly, I asked for more of the sauce that complimented the fish. My wife ordered the palm salad and added mahi but the mahi was a little overcooked. We sat out on the balcony which is a little tired and needs sanding and staining. The service was very good, the music was at a nice level. Overall a nice evening.

    New Years dinner was great as was service from Isabella. We had prime rib and Spanish Taritelli. The peppermint ice cream with hot fudge topped off an all around good experience. Always a treat to eat at Garwoods!
