We have been coming here for a while now and for some reason when we have our banquet for 32 guys they can never get the bills correct. The wait staff is polite and nice I just think the system they use is outdated. The can never get the bills correct for the table. We had to wait an additional... More

Thank you for your continued business and feedback regarding your recent experience. We enjoy having your group every year. The delay in providing the bills at the end of service was in part due to requests from members of the group to combine rounds of drinks and entree's from various tables.

We waited for a long time for our meals and our table was one of just three. The prices are steep and the Chicken, one of us had, was like old shoe leather. I had an alfredo without the alfredo sauce. The drinks came with small fruit flys.

Decided to have dinner at Otsego Club's Duck Blind Grill during last week's golf trip. The building itself merits a visit, with its' Alpine Lodge construction setting it apart from most restaurants you're likely to visit. Inside the restaurant is a wall of windows overlooking the Sturgeon Valley, with a glimpse of several holes on The Tribute Golf Course in... More

We had a great breakfast at this hidden gem found at Ostego Club Resort. From the nice breakfast menu we chose a traditional two egg with sausage plate and the spicy French toast. Coffee was served fresh and hot by our excellent waitress, Roberta. The meal was delicious and it was so pleasant to enjoy our breakfast in an unhurried... More

We sat outside with a beautiful view. Enjoyed a glass of wine and chocolate chip cookie ice cream bake, it was fantastic. Service was good and staff friendly. There was also live music for a few hours.

They had a singer there for entertainment. We ate outside on the deck with a gorgeous view. Had great service, but the restaurant menu had a lot of nice selections but when I went to order something I was told they did not have it. My husband had just asked the greeter how thick the pork was and she came... More

The food is very good if you manage to get served. We arrived at 8:00 P.M. after the "dinner rush" on a Monday evening. We were seated promptly and that is where the good service ended. If it wasn't for the fact that we didn't feel like going into town for dinner, we should have left. We ordered drinks and... More

Food was very good. Portions were big. We don't eat a lot so should have not had appetizers. The view was outstanding.
