This place has been here a long time and frankly, and it's a classic. The food and drinks are good, as well as the service. Some would say it's dated, but I think that's part of it charm. If you go, the only place to sit is in the bar to enjoy the BEST part of it, THE VIEW. Is... More

So I am giving them 4 stars because of the beautiful views, which many CO Springs restaurants seem to lack, and because of the delicious, well presented food. The service however was disappointing, especially in light of the fact that it was a surprise party for my wife, and I had made the reservations more than a week in advance.... More

Nice view? Check. Great service? Check. Outside seating with fire pits? Check. Ordered the prime rib and wasn't disappointed. Solid piece of meat with minimal fat but still tender. I can't vouch for the other menu items, and probably never will be able to. The prime rib will keep me coming back for more. The only minor drawback is having... More

A 2 only because the 3 people with me said their meals were just OK. Service was good. I ordered the Beef Brisket, $ 18 with small amount of mashed potatoes and 4 small pieces of asparagus that was the included vegetable. It was disgusting at best. Simmered overnight in a brown sugar and tomato sauce that was soooo sweet... More

I enjoyed the overall atmosphere. I was tired and undecisive and the bartender didn't blink an eye at helping me choose everything! Decent happy hour. Chili and cornbread were SO GOOD! mac and cheese was a let down--but I am so particular about it!

Sitting high above the city around a fireplace with a city lights view is the real attraction here. The food is a just okay, although I will say I've really only gotten what's on the bar menu because they have some specials before seven. Karaoke under the stars on Thursday nights has been fun for the summer, when it didn't... More

I have eaten here on numerous occasions. It sits atop a bluff and overlooks Colorado Springs. A great place to take the special someone in your life. You can also kick back and enjoy a few drinks on the patio next to the fire pits on the cool evenings of fall. The food has always been cooked to my likings.... More

Great evening spot, espically on the patio. Great for families and friends, Food average but the ambiance out weighs the food. Wonderful in evenings, get there early for spot by a firepit. Servie was a bit slow but server was very pleasant.

I am giving this review a 3 because the food was average. The service was terrible, but the manager did his best to make it up to us, so I will give the review an "average" based on the food. There were multiple service errors during our meal, including the fact that it took more than 30 minutes to order... More

This is a very nice place, set up on a hill, with spectacular views. The food was good and our waiter was very friendly. We had a terrific time. My husband and I had the prime rib while our son enthusiastically ordered the bison burger. Everything was cooked to perfection and we would go back there again.
