The Wynfrey is incompetently managed. Fortunately, this incompetence does not spread to Merk's. We had hors d'oeuvres at the bar which were very good. The breakfast buffet is also very good. There is an omelet station and many other selections. Impressively, they offer uncured bacon...More

This place has a good menu, with quick service and good food. Sandwiches are large and tasty. You can eat and be gone in about half an hour.

Good deal with the adjoining hotel for buffet breakfast. Superb service. Very fresh fruit, many options, made to order omelettes, I would definitely return!

We ordered from the menu rather than the breakfast buffet. Omlettes were made to order either from the buffet or as just an omlette. Mine was perfect. I ordered "just plain" grits which I repeated verifying that just plain was available. The server started pulling...More

It was $18 for an adult. I don't think it makes any difference if you stay in the hotel or walk in from the mall.
