We went here for breakfast and got the breakfast buffet, which was $25. The food was good, but the price could have still been better. The staff is super friendly too.

This is a great place to start your journey in viewing the entire property. The waterfalls are calming. The bartenders make an awesome cosmopolitan. You can also get a beverage to go while you tour the property.
