Lunch at Nelsons left me with a little less to be desired. Food was so so so. The menu is very limited. The service was just okay. It took awhile to get noticed by a server but it did get better through the meal. The big turnoff came at the valet. Apparently unless you drive or rent an expensive car do not expect to be treated with any respect or kindness. The person in our group who drove a Mercedes was promptly remembered, approached and immediately assisted with their vehicle. I though (driving an American vehicle of lesser value and older model year yet in no way a clunker) had to wait quite some time before one of the 4 valets came over to tell me that I needed to walk over to the cashier to pay my ticket. After waiting the valet came with my car, parked it across the drive from where I was standing then proceeded to leave the car running with the door open. He then passed (not even pausing) me and told me that he left the car running. Oh, did I mention that the driver of the Mercedes did not have to pay for their valet service??? I am still kicking myself by tipping although I did not have it in me to leave none at all even if that is what was deserved.

There is more that could be written but needless to say, I will NOT be returning! I am sure my money will be accepted at another establishment.

If you've never been here, you'll be in for a treat. Nelson's is perched right off the bluffs so the view at sunset is spectacular on a clear day. Their menu is pretty limited but the view and atmosphere makes up for that. My friend and I split the BBQ chicken salad and BBQ pulled pork sandwich and both were excellent. Note: they charge for parking whether you valet or not. You can either walk to the restaurant and enjoy the grounds/scenery or request to be driven via golf cart.
