This was our breakfast venue, and it proved to be comfortable with a good breakfast buffet selection, Dinner here was pleasant--nor gourmet, but tasty with pleasant service.

Brunch was good, but would advise to go early. We went at 2:30 and the majority of the food was not fresh, but had been sitting under heat lamps for some time. Would have been worth the price if all of the food had been...More

Nice atmosphere and good service, but the food we had, the chicken special with wine sauce, potatoes and onions was truly terrible. One of the worst meals we’ve had in a long time. Potatoes were not cooked, the wine sauce was really bad and the...More
