Without a doubt, one of my favorite Restaurants. Ordered King Crab Legs, and wow...just wow. Waitress was phenomenal with her suggestions. Drinks, food and service was beyond perfect. I'm already planning on going back on my next trip. Keep in mind, we were there when the door opened at 5, so no wait, booth was quaint & private.

This is a great place to take your significant other for a quite meal with a romantic atmosphere. The prices are a bit expensive but they serve fine dinning types of meals.

This place never disappoints! It has been years since I had been here and it was just as good as I remembered. The live music in the bar was fantastic!

The Freight House has excellent food and a great atmosphere. The menu includes filet, sirloin, prime rib, chicken teriyaki, shrimp, scallops, salmon, crab, and lobster and there are usually several other specials.The salad bar is amazing too. The servers are friendly, attentive and well trained.

Business dinner with some coworkers, excellent service and recommendations from our sassy waitress Liz. The salad bar was just right and a half order of King crab was cooked perfect and more than enough

This was our first visit. The lighting in the place is dim .I had a difficult time reading the menu.The food was delicious.

We chose lighter fare entrees and were very pleased with the quality of our choices. Salmon and chicken teriyaki were flavorful and the vegetables superb. Enjoyed our visit to the bar before dinner - what a selection!
