I forgot how beautiful the Camelback Inn is! We met some friends here for dinner, and had a wonderful time. Our table for 6 was outside under the pagoda. We were behind the live musician (who was excellent), but the sound level was just right....More

Great setting, excellent food, reasonably attentive service. Live music turned out to be a major annoyance. Solo guitar/vocalist (who is very talented with a good voice) had his amplifier so loud we could not hear each other at the table outdoors. We asked repeatedly the...More

We dined outside, and it was a lovely evening. The trout special was the best trout I've had. The guacamole was excellent as well. And our server was attentive and knowledgeable with helpful but not pushy suggestions.
