First off,I want to say I am not, nor are any of my 7 other friends affiliated with owners or people who work there. We all go out to dinner once a month, trying new places. We're not professional reviewers, just friends looking to try new and different places we wouldn't normally go to. We heard about this place on the news and our group of 8 had reservations for 6:30.Location: Easy to get to even coming from Sherwood during rush hour. Plenty of parking too.Decor and Atmosphere: We all agreed it was great. From the antique horse ride and horns on the wall to the wonderful portraits and murals, the artwork made you feel like you were in Arizona.Staff/Service: Very good James! Prompt offer of beverage as each couple arrived. Fresh chilled glass with each beer (although the female sitting across from me didn't get that). Waiter explained the unique way of paying and answered questions about menu items without difficulty.Food: I had one of those big ol' burgers with ham, egg, bacon and the sweet potatoe fries complimented it well. Everyone else had something different for the most part and all I can say is what they told me: "Soup had a little kick to it, which is good" "Salmon salad was a little overcooked and they gave me a whole order instead of half." Overall consensus from our group was it was pretty good food for the price. Strong cocktails were an added treat instead of watered down imitations.Recommendations: Way better than Buster's, Red's, Red Robin, Applebee's or some other SW themed place without the crowd and extra price tag. We paid full price and left a good tip, > 15%. Kudos to the manager, Gary for stopping by each table to sea how everything is. Only negative we decided was the booth itself. It was really comfortable for 6, not 8 but when our first couple showed up, employees were sitting at the big table with paperwork spread out across it. Save the best tables for the customers. Easy mistake to make for them since there wasn't anyone there yet and we all didn't arrive at the same time.

With hopes for a good spot an area with few dining options, I was disappointed by this new restaurant. Staff were friendly and responsive on a slow Sunday morning, but I also found the ordering system odd, and we received our bills before our food, which seemed strange.
The breakfast potatoes were tasty, but bad chicken sausage in a rubbery omelet and food quality, overall, was not commensurate with prices. Interior is cute -- they go all out with the Western theme. If the food was a couple notches better and they switched to a conventional restaurant format, it could be more enjoyable.

I had tried breakfast with family when the W. Linn place opened and was not thrilled. But decided that when a real restaurant opened in my neighborhood I owed it a chance. Well, they blew it.

Before they opened, the touted "concept" was that you would order from a menu before you were seated...theoretically speeding up the process. Obviously this was not a success, because they told us this evening that we had a "choice" of pre-ordering or ordering like normal people at a normal restaurant at the table. We did not see anyone ordering at the entry desk.

Also touted as something "new" was a happy hour menu. We shared the small, very rubbery calamari.
My friend ordered a steak wrap sandwich and I ordered a crab sandwich in pita bread...Menu said it came with a mint aioli. I asked if I could have something without mint instead. "Chef" sent word that the crab was already mixed with it. I said OK I will try it when the gal said I could send it back. It was horrible....indescribably. Crab so mashed up it looked, and felt, like tuna. Sent it back. Decided to share my friend's sandwich rather than order something else. Not good. Strange taste. She didn't even finish her half. When we paid the cashier asked how our meal was. I told her that I had been unhappy at WLinn but decided to try here once
and that it was awful. We went across the parking lot to New Seasons and got coconut/white chocolate gelato which was great and helped take the taste out of our mouths.

We had no idea what we were in for but were curious about the new place here in Mt Park. The decor is very nice but a little too nice for the type of place it is. We were surprised and greatly put off by the fact we had to figure out what we wanted to eat before sitting down or we could select drinks and appetizers, select a table, figure out what we wanted while enjoying our drinks but then have to return to the kiosk and wait our turn to order. Either way we didn't like it. We ordered the calamari which came with great sauces but the rings were so small they were hard to pick up with your fingers and impossible with a fork. I had the grilled salmon and was almost raw and so salty I couldn't hardly eat it. The corn muffins were great with the jalapeno honey butter. When we got ready to pay we felt the price was high for what we got. It's too bad, Mt Park really needed a good restaurant.

OK, I loved the food at this place and the atmosphere was wonderful. You come in, take a menu, order at the kiosk and then go find you seat just like in a fast food joint. The difference is that this place isn't a fast food place but a nice restaurant. The nice thing is that if you know what you want your order goes in right away. Once you are seated the service is amazing with waitstaff taking your drink order and coming back to check on you throughout your meal. The downside is that if you don't know what you want to eat then standing or sitting in the foyer trying to decide is a bit awkward.
