The breakfast was pretty good, though they did get my wife's order wrong. They fixed it. Lunch was poor, had tomato basil soup which tasted like they poured out a can of crushed tomatoes and heated it, terrible. Prices are a little high, service is...More

It may be best place for breakfast in the valley with buffet breakfast and lot of options. The pricing is pretty good too.

Horrible and Painful Experience, we didnt get much choice as we wanted to stay close to the park. The restaurant did not provide quality food nor service. The worst was my Coach sunglasses was stolen. Be aware! Will not recommend.

We ate dinner in the bar grill twice. The fish and fries, chicken basket and onion rings were excellent! We had breakfast in the restaurant one morning. We didn't appreciate paying $11.95/per person for a breakfast buffet that is free at most hotels.
