Description: Top of the 80's Restaurant sits right on top of the mountain, giving you the view of a lifetime. The fall foliage is a spectacular and heatwarming sight. In the winter, watching the snow fall from our dining room is like watching a white, winter wonderland. In early spring you can see doe and their fawn feeding on the green grass. During the summer you can see for miles with the clear blue skies.

We celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary with 16 friends and family. Appetizers, meals and drinks were enjoyed by everyone. The Crab Cakes were to die for. Jody, our server was just great. Ask for her if you go there. Kudos to Tom for making it a most memorable day! We have been going there for 50 years.

The views were great, no social distancing with tables though....decor is very dated. Server was very nice a attentive. They overcooked by fillet mignon twice, but I ate the 2nd one. Everyone else enjoyed their meal. Was convenient because it was next to the hotel we were staying at.

Our first visit was pleasant. The waitress was super nice, made sure water glasses were filled, wore a mask, catered to requests. The food was good. Portion size was large so had another meal to take home. We particularly loved the Watermelon Salad. The guys got Old Fashioned drinks they said were good. Bread with seasoned olive oil was okay. I would come back again. It is pricy but is fine dining, so was expected. View was great.

First off, I would definitely go back. This review is to help management/owners. (sorry I am an auditor ;-))

The service and the food were quite good. But this place could be so much more. The location is great but the decor is sooo dated, like 1960's dated! This is the type of space that an interior designer would dream about! Such a great view wasted because the windows are set at an improper angle and reflect the interior light. (see a high end rooftop restaurant to observe how to avoid this). Tables/chairs, flooring, decor.... all need a reboot.

Also, more attention to portion control and business management is needed. I ordered wings, which were great, but they were huge and there were too many. I left 4 behind (fyi, I'm 6', 190). I asked for blue cheese and hot sauce on the side. I got a full soup bowl of blue cheese dip - the good kind with great chunks of blue cheese in it - it was excellent but I used maybe 1/20th of the bowl. Same with the hot sauce. A huge waste. I looked around at other diners and it was the same thing - huge portions , lots of leftovers.

While this restaurant offers a beautiful panoramic view of the valley, and good, but overpriced food and wine, we felt a bit uncomfortable as this was our very first indoor dining experience since March. Although a sign on the door required all guests to wear masks, we were greeted at the hostess stand by the hostess who seated us, without social distancing from us and not wearing a mask! In fact, she did not wear a mask at any time. She Helped reset unwrapped silverware on tables, touching the silverware without gloves. Our server was pleasant and the food was good.
