Food was okay but the restaurant is in desperate need of a makeover with new fixtures, carpet and chairs/tables.

The food was always wonderful for each of the four days we were there attending a conference. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner on multiple days. There was buffet style meals and a good variety of menu items to choose from. The best part of this restaurant is the amazing staff that works there. I can honestly say I have... More

At 9PM there was one person running the bar and waiting tables. OK, only a couple people eating, but there was a conference starting and the... More

They have a great chef and I didn't discover how good he was until a group I belong to had a luncheon here. Hubby and I have come here for Sunday brunch for years but lunch and dinner are great too. Great service and if you can't eat an adult brunch, you can ask for the kid's brunch, an excellent... More
