Grandview was fabulous! The Wiener schnitzel was the best I’ve ever tasted and my husband’s steak was also excellent. The ambience and service were also great. We would definitely go again. Five stars!

Last June we came to celebrate my wife’s birthday and it’s one of very few occasions in my 15 years of being on open table that a birthday or anniversary was not celebrated with either a cake or ice cream. It happened again on my birthday outing.

I have reviewed this restaurant several times, but since asked again, I add the following: what do folks consider when dining out? Hospitality, Ambiance, Food, and Value. On all counts, the Grandview fits the bill. From the front desk to the busser, courtesy and welcome has been my only experience. I have always felt welcomed by name, order remembered, and the feeling that one is truly valued: McKinley provided that recent experience. The view is fantastic whether summer or winter. The quality of the meal (usually breakfast and/or lunch for me) remans top. The value ends up being very good considering it is a resort on a resort lake. Not your coffee shot prices, but I didn't choose a coffee shop last Sunday! Where can you get such a fantastic Bloody Mary at a coffee Shop. I plan to be back soon!

It was great, the food was great and service awesome! It did take a while for the food to come out but there was only a few people in and I assume it’s to make things fresh since it all was like from scratch! The fish tacos are awesome and so is the lobster roll, although this last one is kind of small but sooooo good! Overall very nice place and view

My go-to meal at the Grandview is breakfast either before or after noon. The four choice omelette never disappoints and I recommend it. The best of all is the Bloody Mary made from their own recipe mix and garnished abundantly. If lunch is your choice, try the fish Tacos -- delicious and more than enough for a good hearty meal. Lastly, the servers are present and conscientious but not overbearing. Catrina was my server last time: welcoming and efficient. From desk to table, the whole staff is professional and welcoming.

Very nice resturaunt!! Smaller dining room, but very intimate, nice subdued lighting, and very comfortable seating. Menu is limited, but very interesting selections, presented well, and very good and favorable. Service was very professional, friendly and efficient. Resturaunt had a very good wine selection, by the glass and by the bottle. I would say this is more of a special occasion type of resturaunt, based on their pricing and limited menu, but a definite must try!

My wife stayed at Geneva Inn hotel and used this restaurant for a dinner and a breakfast.
On both occasions, musics were too loud for a restaurant of this class.
Breakfast was very good. The biggest negative was steaks of the dinner. Both of us tried prime rib. The suraface was too charred and tasted literally like char or ash. The chef ruined nice meat. As we came to like the hotel and the area a lot, we try to give the restaurant a second chance in the future. Hope they service good foot next time.

Hello HiroshiN, thank you for taking time to review your visit & thank you for staying with us at the hotel. We are glad you enjoyed breakfast! You can always ask your server, host or manager if the music can be turned down. We leave it at a reasonable level so tables do not hear other's conversations, but you can still have an easy conversation with your own table. We apologize for your steak experience & invite you to try us again! Be sure to let your server know your preferences. Thank you!
