    The good: beautiful dining room and bar, good service, the tender flavorful filets cooked to perfection with wonderful wine reduction. Good crème brûlée and chocolate trio deserts. The Bad: roasted vegetables WAY over salted to the point of inedible. Baked potato curiously served warm on outside, cold inside. The manager seemed attentive to our issues but offered no explanation. The establishment hold promise, so I chalk the negatives up to a bad night and would try them again.

    Such a beautiful building. Unfortunately we had to wait 15 minutes after our reservation to be seated. We met some nice people to chat with at the beautiful bar while we waited. The food was a bit too salty for us and we would have enjoyed some bottled fizzy water as an option. It is a lovely restaurant but they just need to to work on a few things.

    I know it is extra work, but would be nice to have an allergy menu. The chef was pretty accommodating though. The noise level is high because of the high ceilings which makes it tough for those with hearing aids. Service was excellent and food was very good. A bit pricy though. $10 for a glass of wind from a bottle that was probably $20. Halibut at $38, although very good, was expense too compared to other restaurants in the area. It is a lovely venue. Every inch is quality. Love the private restrooms too. So glad the people who invested in it decided to come home and out their money there. We certainly hope it goes well.

    Was seated outdoors when there was plenty of room inside. Ants, gnats, and even yellow jackets bothered us the whole time. Would have been excellent in doors but the staff didn’t even offer to move us.

    The hostess and the wait staff were all friendly and inviting. The food was delicious! As an appetizer we had the shrimp; for main entrees we had the fillet, halibut and the night’s special - a pasta dish. We shared a dessert - brownie bottom cheesecake, and it was amazing. The setting is lovely. We highly recommend Broadgauge!

    The food was decent, but the service was horrible and the manager was rude and Ill equipped for the job, When we attempted to discuss our concerns with him, he became an emotional basket case and stormed off stating he would remove us from the reservation list rather than discuss our concerns. This was a joke since we already had horrible service and a $600 bill for 6 people due, which we paid and tipped well in full despite his unprofessional and juvenile behavior. In no way were we asking for anything free. He got upset, simply because he thought someone in our group rolled their eyes at him. He is immature and unprofessional and has a lot of growing up to do before running a restaurant of any caliber, let alone a supposed upscale caliber restaurant such as this. When you command premium prices, you need to deliver premium service. McDonalds offers better service for a much lower price. Good luck and hope for the best if you choose to go here!

    First night with new chef. Food was good and menu was limited but due to the change. I fully support local business but they need to expand their wine list beyond local wineries. We will go again.

    Another excellent meal! We had the pork loin and salmon special and they were both excellent. It was Chef Sean Keeley’s first night at the helm and although the basic Broadguage dinner menu remains, it has been tweaked a bit to include some vegetarian/keto/gluten free items. I’m sure there are many who will appreciate that addition. As for the service, we had Rick who is the epitome of what a server should be. We absolutely love him and appreciate all that he does to make our dining experience in such a beautiful place a special treat.

    The Broadguage is a BEAUTIFUL venue.....the food can be from GREAT to bland and overcooked...as has been my experiences. Sunday July31st of July..took family members there....th1/2 of meals were quite good..excellent...other were poorly seasoned...if at all..and somewhat overcooked... Pork hash had TOO much potatoes and little pork...gucamole without seasonings of any kind....Steak n eggs too bland...and several dishes were over oiled. . a shame, because 2wks earlier had had lunch/brunch there with friends and all had been excellent..except for minor seasoning adjustment needed....

    We had heard great things about Broadgauge and even reviewed their online menu. It’s strip from where we live but why not. Our friends had the same curiosity so we made reservations for outside dining on a recent Sunday for their well advertised brunch.. The weather was great and we looked forward to a great experience. We arrived and were promptly at the few outdoor tables. Our server appeared and distributed menus, took drink orders, and mentioned the daily specials. He returned shortly and answered a few questions about the menu and took our orders. Meanwhile all but one of the table that weren’t filled and orders began to be served around us. Other tables had been offered table service and napkins well before service but we hadn’t. When he passed our table we asked if we could have the same pre dinner service, he returned dumping the silverware and in a pile and walked away. O, they were busy inside but we should have taken it as a warning. The final empty table was seated.by a young couple. Our server promptly addressed their needs, menus, silverware, drinks as expected. We were lost in conversation and one hour had passed and we became concerned about our order. Ah, here he comes with a serving try high above his shoulder. Our orders had arrived, but not ours but the young couple. Before we could catch his attention, he turned and was gone. We were trying to flag down another wait staff to check on our orders but he was gone too. Finally a few minutes later, our orders arrived. Of course he had to ask who ordered what but that was quickly sorted out. He quickly asked to refill drinks and accommodated quickly and left. The food looked great but things went downhill fast. All the orders were different but regular menu items not specials of any type. All orders were Luke warm or even cold that was not how I expected my poached eggs with a cheese sauce. No one’s meal was adequate. The young couple paid and left. We were barely half through. Never again.

    The staff was very nice for our first visit. It was a long wait for our dinner after the appetizer came out. Other tables who were seated with us/ after (and even larger parties) we’re getting their food and finished before we got ours (hour wait or more between the two) my meal wasn’t what I order because they ran out of ribeyes. But I wasn’t informed of the change and would have liked the option of something else, since what was substituted I don’t particularly care for. For the price of the food I only ate a couple bites and now it’s sitting in my fridge. Definitely expensive, but we were prepared for that going in. I don’t know if I’d say our food tasted, or the wait for it, was worth $140 we spent on drinks (5), an appetizer, two meals, with the one being the cheapest on the menu. I’d like to think we would come back, but it’s a far drive for us and too expensive for a “regular dinner out” for us. It was a special occasion so it had good ambience for feeling “fancy”

    They didn’t have our reservation. Had us wait 20 minutes even though there were 10+ tables available. Didn’t ask if we wanted a drink. Once we were sat it was another 20 minutes until our order was taken. We ordered an appetizer, 5 minutes later our server came and said I forgot to read you the specials. “Our first special is an appetizer, oh shoot you already ordered an appetizer, I’m just going to read it anyway.” We then order our entrees, I got the burger and asked what came in it. I said I would just like it plain don’t even have to put anything on the side. No sauce no nothing just the burger a piece of cheese on a bun. Server says no problem. Burger comes with everything including a red sauce on both top and bottom of bun. I ask what is on the burger and show the server. The server replies “I think that is nothing but if it is something it is a tomato paste.” Order another burger and it just wasn’t good. Also asked for salt and pepper for the fries to which we never received. At one point the server did walk by and say oh yeah you wanted salt and pepper but then still never brought it. On the lone, lone bright side my wife’s steak was terrific

    Gorgeous building and fantastic atmosphere. We went for a date night since we haven’t tried the broad gauge for dinner; but have had lunch at the talisman cafe next door. We were started off with water and fresh bread; the butter it came with really made it wonderful! Our server was beyond delightful and would love to have him again. The Bavarian Belly Appetizer (pictured) was such an interesting concept and would recommend to keep the cheese sauce for your entree. I had the Burger and my partner had the jimmy stixx hot chicken sandwich. Both were delicious and filling so we did have some leftovers to take home
