Has anyone been at this spot at President's golf course? I got nothing with a search.

Any good?

Danke!

    Simple little restaurant, nothing special. It's rather dreary up there this time of the year. Maybe once people get out and golf it will have more appeal. Staff is pleasant.

      I havent been there yet but before the "makeover" the guy who ran the snack bar was a real a$$hole.

      We called him "Mr. Congeniality." Either he's been given his walking papers or you didn't meet him.

      It does have a pleasant outdoor area and view.

        Guess, I didn't meet him. Either that or the fact that the place was virtually empty, he was on his best behavior!!

      Food not that good. Service with a little attitude. Don't look for me. Oh, and did I mention overpriced?
      Sorry,

          The person who owns it is extremely pleasant. I want to love it for his sake, but there is something missing. If you want good food on a golf course, go to The Tavern at Granite Links...YUM!

            Funny, I've never seen "Granite Links" and "Yum" used in the same sentence.

              I've been to Granite Links for work luncheons a number of times in the past year, yet have never gone for dinner or to hang out with friends. My thoughts have been, at least for functions, the service can be pretty horrendous. Food is okay. In it's favor, are the lovely rooms and beautiful views. If you order carefully, I would assume you could leave happy.

                Go and sit at one of the high tops in the bar, order a burger, medium rare, sweet potato fries and a Harpoon IPA...YUM..........
