Average. I had the Crab Cake Benedict and I could not cut the English muffin. My aunt had waffles and bacon. She received 2 pieces of cold, overdone bacon. Prices were high. Waitstaff was friendly. Will not return.

Yes it is. There is a ramp outside the restaurant to use. It goes to the promenade with the restaurant and stores. They have chairs, which can be moved to accommodate a wheelchair.
