I ordered the filet minon and it was over cooked but was still a good choice. The bar was not crowded but the bartender was kept busy, she was excellent when she waited on us. We highly recommend this place.

A very nice setting that easily accommodated our group of seven. Quick service and a good selection (including vegan) pleased all the diners. Their Jambalaya Fettuccine was excellent.

One of Auburn's finest for lunches. Their Pastrami or Corned Beef sandwich, French Onion soup, Pot Pie, and exceptional salads head the list from my personal experience.

The food was bland but seemed fresh and Sarah at the bar was great. Another added bonus was the good beer selection. Best hotel restaurant I've encountered.
