Our waitress brought the wrong salad dressing and didn't replace it; service was slow. Food not as good as a Denny's.

My husband had the fried crawfish appetizer and loved it! I ate a small Oriental salad - small portion but just what I wanted.

It was hailing and this place looked inviting. Boy were we fooled. Service was very slow and the restaurant was not busy,server had no idea what the different menu items were. Frozen Margarita was the worst ever. Food was tasteless. (I had a reuben,hubby had fish and chips). Poor dining experience.

The atmosphere was fine- lots of families and kids. The restaurant was clean. Service was strange- the waitor wasn't paying attention to me and ended up bringing me stuff I didn't ask for (first the wrong side, and then the wrong flavored soup). Not a huge deal, but it made an impression. Ultimately, I got some ravioli that was just... More

Have stopped here at least half a dozen times, mostly for lunch, but a couple times for dinner, and have never been disappointed. Really like the tuna melt. Wait staff is always friendly and efficient. Newly updated interior and nice patio.

The breakfast buffet is clearly the way to go on a Sunday morning. $10.95 We had pot roast supposedly like mom's, but it was tough. $8.95. Ate 1/2 of it because I was hungry. Not especially the best I hVe ever had, but fresh bread was great!

The restaurant is open again after a major remodel. Very nice upgrade, especially the restrooms which are way, way nicer now. Still good food, good beer selction, congenial wait staff. Always enjoy the patio during the summer. Hav e never regretted eating here in 11 years. Recommend the Cajun Gumbo.

We went to this resturaunt 3 out of the 4 nights we stayed in Gunnison. It was not for the food, it was only because they had trivia. It was a way for our family to interact and keep the peace without actually talking to one another. Food Fish and chips - If one likes their fish and chips in... More

So far in this town I've experienced lots of greasy, run of the mill fast food. This place is no different. The food is super greasy and super pricey. Not worth the price you have to pay for it. The service isnt much better and have to ask for every little thing like it is rationed. Stay away from this... More

Palisades was closed for a few weeks while the remodeled the restaurant. It's open again now and is better than ever. The food is still top notch and at a reasonable price. For those looking for a little entertainment while dining, there's always trivia available. Play by yourself or compete with other restaurants across the country. It's a fun time.
