Wolf Lodge Inn

Reviewed By TAMAN1951

Definitely not worth the wait even with reservations. Ambience is nice and quite rustic. Very appealing for a steakhouse. Service was friendly but very slow and disjointed. All meals finally delivered but they only gave my grandson his fries and said his chicken strips would be awhile. He was served 10 minutes after everyone else. I found my ribeye to be tough but the char was nice. Daughter-in-law ordered well done (no my idea of good prep but it is for her). It first came out medium rare. Second attempt a solid medium. The third attempt (we were done eating by now it was burnt and inedible. Guess we pissed off the chef. In short not an enjoyable experience. Next time I stay home and fire up the grill. Quite pricy for mediocre quality food.

After reading previous reviews, I couldn’t believe I was in the same establishment. We made a reservation but upon arrival were told tersely that the dining room was closed, that we had to sit in the bar area. So we did and even though it was not crowded we were ignored for 12 minutes, finally had to ask the waitress who walked by us twice (with no eye contact) if we could get assistance. Waiter showed up in a few minutes with menus and we placed drink orders. Again, there wasn’t a crowd but the drinks took about 15 minutes, staff seemed busy but we weren’t the beneficiaries of their busy-ness (which should have been our clue to leave). We placed food orders and it took about 10 minutes for salads to arrive, a normal time. After the plates were removed it took over 45 minutes for the main course to arrive. Nobody bothered to inform us of status during the wait. The waiter was nice and cordial but not trained for service. What he told us after dinner was “there was a large order right before yours of 60 people”. WTF. If the service had been decent we would have been able to order ahead of the crowd. Or he could have informed us beforehand so we could decide our options. Turns out in addition to the dining room being closed for a party there was also a large catering party room in the back that had a huge birthday party going on, like you know, 60+ people!After all that, the food was mediocre, but it was at least warm. The menu reads well and is enticing but the entire experience was a total letdown. This restaurant is probably suited for a college town and if you have a large party this may be a good spot, but if you are visiting please consider your other alternatives.

Hudson's Hamburgers

Reviewed By Obelisk1776

Went to Hudson's somehow expecting more. The burger patties themselves are all basically prepared exactly the same, although some have cheese. Then they are added as singles, doubles or triples to buns with onions and pickles. On the counter you then add ketchup or their sweet mustard sauce or spicy ketchup sauce. Nice but not super - although others at the counter raved about them, and the two guys next to me had 3x double cheese burgers and 2x triple cheese burgers. This is a classic high school-style burger joint with a bit of class.

Jimmy's Down the Street

Reviewed By GoodToGoGirl

This is a highly rated diner in town, and we were looking forward to a really good breakfast. Plus, Guy Fieri has visited. My husband ordered the Logger’s plate with a biscuit. Each of the meats, the ham, German sausage, pork sausage, and bacon were really delicious. All of them were juicy and tender. I ordered the chicken fried steak and eggs because the chicken fried steak is made fresh right there, and that’s not the typical. The scrambled eggs were tasty and cooked well. The chicken fried steak was very thin and pretty dry. The gravy was just so thick and didn’t add to the steak. The breakfast potatoes and biscuit were fresh but not remarkable.

We caught a late dinner at Moon Time and really enjoyed the meal. They have an interesting menu...for a bar...which is so appreciated! We both got the "Sloppy Joes," a loose term, as it is a deconstructed Sloppy Joe of delicious ground pork and ground beef over a piece of cornbread. Yummy!

This place looked great online, so had to check it out. I had the Border Patrol which had Bacon and fried onion strings, it was amazing my wife had the Caprese which was also really good with pesto and balsamic. The also crisp the cheese on the outside of the bread which is really good. Place is busy and small but found a table and food didn't take that long. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the CDA area.Thank you for finding us and giving us a try! The Border Patrol is a fan favorite as well as the Caprese, however the “FRICO” (fried cheese around the outside of the Sando) always takes the prize as everyone’s favorite treat. We hope you visit us again soon! #meltzfanz

Craft brewery with exceptional food.

Reviewed By LizM01

Hidden gem of a local pub in an unassuming suburb, as we were driving there my husband actually asked where I was directing him for lunch. Great atmosphere, outdoor seating, friendly and efficient staff. The food was good. Nachos plate was way too big for one person as a main meal and really should have been written on the menu as a sharing item. Six packs of beer also available to purchase and take away. Clean restroom. Bacon appetizer was excellent, as was the arugula salad.
