We did not have reservations but the hostess was so nice & was able to get us in with minimal wait time. We were so impressed with the service & ambiance especially since they were so busy because of Mother's Day. We just recently moved here & have been there once before and enjoyed it, so we wanted to eat... More

A group of 10 met at here. Everything was good. They have children rates that are very reasonable. Grand daughters loved it too. Hotel is tastefully redone and always decorated for the season.

My wife and I dine here often. The setting is a 1920's high society setting with beautiful architecture, and a warm, comfortable lobby area. There is usually live piano music from a resident musician. The Christmas display is outstanding and draws many people to use the big Christmas tree as a photo backstop. The food is buffet style, of excellent... More

The beautiful hotel opened in 1926, my Mother went to her graduation dance in 1940. Sunday 2017, six of us went to the buffet for lunch. Wonderful service, friendly staff and a really nice selection of food. The local college now owns the hotel, which houses the hotel management students as well as the culinary arts.

We've now heard a number of versions of this restaurant ... food that is prepared by a university culinary college, food that is prepared otherwise, food that is only buffet-style, food that is off a menu, etc. A bit confused, four of us looked at the on-line site that read, "soup and sandwiches" for a Monday lunch. What the hey,... More

We met friends here for lunch as it was a midway point. They had been here before and recommended it. The all-you-can eat buffet features southern-fried chicken and other regional cuisines along with daily favorites, a salad bar, a dessert bar, and a choice of coffee or tea. Guests are frequently invited to sample specialty dishes created by South Florida... More

Beautiful room with very good food. I only give it 4stars because this could have been hotter. The potatos were barely warm. The service was good and the price was reasonable.
