                                                        I ordered a cesar salad. The lettuce was fine but there was little or no garlic and I could not detect the taste of anchovies, a little of which is supposed to be mixed into the dressing. We were there on a Friday at lunch time so the place was a little busy. The waitress was very pleasant but we waited about 45 minutes for my salad and my friend's hamburger to come to the table.

                                                        Always great food and service. The outdoor patio that was under the roof is quite noisy but not any other place outside.

                                                        It was great! The only feedback I have is that the umbrella needs to be secured because one flew off and hit another patron.

                                                        None of us thought our meals were great and we all felt they were overpriced.

                                                        Loved the lamb meatballs- very good service and great views of the golf course. The “large” pasta was overpriced for its size. Not an inexpensive evening, but tasty food and nice ambiance.

                                                        We had a lovely evening with friends. The food is always excellent (we've been there many times) We ate on the patio with great views of the course. Service was great, oysters were fresh Turn House is one of our favourite spots!

                                                        So disappointed. Other than the beautiful view of the golf course not much good to say. Pictures of the food online looked much better in pictures than in reality. Ordered Crab and Artichoke Gratin to share and it was super oily, even the garlic bread that came with it was extremely oily and heavy. Then we ordered grilled pork and it was super dry, we barley were able to eat few bites. The wine was good, however the server opened the bottle, put it on the table and left. Overpriced comparing to what we got.

                                                        I had been wanting to visit the Turn House since it opened. I never knew it was on a golf course in a residential neighborhood. I enjoyed driving through the neighborhood though. The homes are beautiful. The food was good and the service was good too. We made a reservation and were about 10-15 minutes early, and there was not a wait as we could be seated immediately. Is this a place I would re-visit? Possibly. Enjoy your time and happy dining!

                                                        The food was very good and the waitstaff attentive without being overbearing. Because we were all driving, none of us wanted a full glass of wine but we all did want a little - the waitperson actually brought us 3 small glasses so we would each have our own, yet charged us for one glass (there were 3 of us). That seemed especially nice.

                                                        My husband and I came for lunch and had the beet salad and french onion soup to start and then we shared a burger with parmesan fries. The food was all very good and the setting is very nice. The larger dining rooms were in use for a private event so we were seated in the room with the bar overlooking the golf course. It was a rainy, windy and cool day but there was a lot of outdoor seating which would be lovely on a good weather day. I'd welcome coming back to dine outdoors.

                                                        Great view of the rolling greens and fairway. Dining was enjoyable, We had the braised short rib and fluke. Both delicious along with the respective vegetables that melded perfectly. The beet and feta salad was very good, and our cocktails were excellent. Sine it was my wife's birthday, she was offered a dessert of her choice on the house, including a candle! Nice touch.

                                                        Took my mom here for an early Mother’s Day brunch. We had a 1:30 reservation but we got there early and to our surprise it was fairly empty. We were seated at a back table near the window that overlooks outdoor eating over the golf course. We sat unattended for almost 10 minutes until a waitress acknowledged us and said that even though she wasn’t our waitress she would start our drinks in a moment when she returned. Before she could our actual waiter Alex showed up. He didn’t apologize for the delay just said that he would be our waiter and I had to ask what his name was. We ordered our drinks - Arnold Palmer, grapefruit juice, and coffee. It took another 10 minutes for that those to come out. The drinks came out and they were great. The coffee smelled amazing and the grapefruit juice was definitely freshly squeezed. My Arnold Palmer had fresh lemonade and was good also. My mom spilled a little coffee and we asked for some paper napkins and Alex bought us a bar towel. I’ve never had that happen before but ok… For our entrees my mom got the Turn House breakfast and subbed the toast out for French toast. I got the shrimp and grits. Our food took about 30 minutes to come out. The turn house breakfast is eggs, home fries, bacon, and the toast or French toast. My mom said everything was fresh and she especially loved the potatoes. We had to ask for syrup, butter, and a spoon for my shrimp and grits since it wasn’t brought out with our meal. Again we asked another waiter and they relayed the message to Alex so he could bring it out. French toast was decent. Shrimp and grits were good but had a little too much of the tomato cream sauce. The spinach and tomatoes were a good addition to the dish. The shrimp are big and you get 4. No bacon like some other places add to this classic brunch dish. Once we got our meals Alex did not check on us again. I had to ask the bartender to get him for our checks. He finally came we paid and left. Poor service this time.

                                                        A visit a few months ago did not go so well for a variety of reasons. Following my review that I wanted to be instructive, Moody, one of the managers, reached out to me. We were invited for a round of drinks and a sharable appetizer, and to give them another try. He and the team were very responsive and we had a much better experience. I am not sure how long Moody has been there, but this management took our feedback very seriously and and wanted to reflect improvement. Jake was our very responsive server, even as many unexpected walk ins came in last night. Thank you for all your efforts to make the Turn House the best it can be. DB

                                                        Our server was fantastic, the restaurant is lovely. We sat in the outdoor dining area which was comfortable and a nice atmosphere. Part of the outdoor area has heat lamps and some parts don’t (we were seated in the area that didn’t) so it got cool and we asked for heating lamps. We were told it would be hard to bring them to our area so we could be moved inside. I had a Manhattan which I didn’t enjoy. My food was bland and the sides were minimal. The menu was very limited. I would go for the scenery and a glass of wine, but not for dinner.

                                                        The food was delicious, but service was terrible. It took forever for our waitress to take a drink order after we were seated and the drinks were incorrect once they arrived. The food was served all at once (soups with the meal, not before) and one of the orders was incorrect. The server who brought the dishes practically threw the plates on the table. Overall, a very poor impression. We won’t be coming back.

                                                        This place could be fantastic but there seems to be some issues with how the kitchen and bar are run. 1st drink ordered - waiter comes back and said they were out of that one. 2nd drink ordered -same issue Ordered a burger with onion rings, waiter came back and said no onion rings, fries were substituted, Burger came and it had onion rings! 2 of us ordered the burger, med rare, both were very well done. Will be back though, mainly due to the outdoor setting.

                                                        Service was slow. When asked for salt the waiter said they'd bring some back but then never returned. Felt the food was a bit over priced as well.

                                                        Our server was polite and professional. However, due to, I’m assuming lack of kitchen staff and lack of wait staff. We waited over a half hour to ask for appetizers. And well over another 30-45 minutes to be served our entrees- which were delicious. My father had to wait 10 more minutes than my mother and I for his entree. EVERYTHING just took a very long time. And even extra time to get the dessert and check. So again food great, and lovely staff servers, just everything was extremely slow and my parents are in their 70’s. I came from Texas to visit and take them out to a nice dinner.

                                                        A small salad with salmon should not be 30.00. No bread offered. Has to be bought. Prices are just too steep.

                                                        The food was really good…I recommend the crab and artichoke dip to share and my short ribs were excellent. We had a very attentive server. We sat outside and the evening was perfect!

                                                        This review is only for Brunch (Easter) normally my review is a 4 to 5 stars consistently for lunch or dinner. The Easter brunch was not worth the $70 per person price, unless you like oysters, that was the only seafood available, not even one drink included with the price. Will continue to enjoy this restaurant for lunch and dinner but I will go somewhere else for brunch.

                                                        So disappointed. When I booked this Reservation for Easter Sunday, there was no indication that there was an Easter Bruch. If you look on Open Table now, it says Easter Brunch, but has the date of May 8th. I was looking forward to ordering off the regular menu. We arrived and were seated and that was when we found out it was a Buffet Style Brunch. We decided to stay since, the possibility of finding somewhere else to eat was probably going to be difficult. The Food was very disappointing. The waffles and pancakes were frozen and had no taste. The carved meat was cold and the scrambled eggs and eggs benedict did not look appetizing. I did enjoyed the bacon and the biscuit with the honey butter. The price of this Buffet was way over priced for the food that was served. $75 w/tax and tip. I would not recommend this restaurant. Sorry....but I will not be returning. Not even for the regular menu.

                                                        I usually love the Turn House, however, it was not worth the price for the Easter buffet. Food was not replenished often, some servers were attentive, ours was not. I would go to eat there again, just not for the buffet.

                                                        We participated in Easter brunch. The food was very good. The price point was very high for the variety of food received. $55 per person for breakfast food plus oysters on the half shell lamb and ham was excessive. I was very very disappointed in the variety of food. A 20% gratuity was added to the bill although we only had three people at our table and this was a Buffay. The only service we received was mimosas being brought to the table. We had to request multiple times before the server attend it to us. Additionally, she did not take the dirty plates away until requested. The service was horrific and we were automatically giving a 20% gratuity. It felt as though she believe she didn’t have to work because she was automatically being tipped.

                                                        We were there to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Sat outside on covered patio. The waiter greeted us fairly quickly, but that’s where it ended. Didn’t get our drinks for 25 minutes, and we had to flag down the waiter to ask where our food was. Didn’t see our food for 1 hour 15 minutes. Food was very good..my husband and son had the crab cakes. I had beet salad with shrimp. I also mentioned it was my husband’s birthday..no happy birthday from the waiter/no special attention whatsoever. Was disappointed!

I tried to call but no one answered the phone . I arrive and the host “ had an attitude” about not calling and told her I tried .., Roberto was good but things from others did not flow … Crab cakes was good , others entrees not so good as others reported .. Had to ask for silverware and napkins etc . We were there before the rush started.. I love the view but …
