Great food, staff was very attentive. Great space, romantic for dinner. Our server was very patient. We sat for awhile but never felt rushed. The salted caramel apple martini was fabulous

We had Thanksgiving dinner here. I was skeptical coming in but Lynda (server) and Robert (chef supervisor) won us over completely! Not only did we have the best service I have had in a long time, they took extra care to make sure my daughter - who is allergic to tree nuts, peanuts, and shellfish- was served safe food. Not...

We had French onion soup and it was very good. I ordered a New York strip medium well but got it medium rare they cooked a new steak the same. I finally got it right on the third try. The steak was excellent. They went way above and beyond for mi inconvenience. The breakfast buffet was excellent

We attended a conference held at the Renaissance Conference Center which included lunches and dinners.

Joep63, Sam & Harry’s breakfast 5 days in a row? I’m super jealous! Thank you for sharing this great review. I hope you ordered the Smoked Salmon Benedict for one of your meals; it’s made with a local salmon called “Great Lakes” from Farmington, MI. It doesn’t get fresher than that! We hope to see you again during your next... More
