We enjoyed The butternut squash salad, filet done perfectly, salmon and a bottle of Salmon Run wine. Excellent service but overpriced.

For the price, you get a nice variety of breakfast items. Eggs, french toast, sausage/bacon, potatoes, variety of breads, cereals, fruit and sweets for $9.99. They have coffee, tea, and offer bloody mary's and mimosas. Can't go wrong for the price!
