Had a great experience here - good food and service with a well priced meal. The restaurant is in the hotel off the lobby and serves three meals a day. The dinner menu is a good mix and the main course come with a salad or soup so plenty of food. We had one dessert which was also great. Wine selection is very good as is beer selection. I will go again and may try a couple nights in the hotel!

The fish tacos were delicious and accompanied with crispy French fries. The service was good and atmosphere calm.

Good Evening Kris M!

I'm unaware of a situation where it's acceptable to pass up good fish tacos. It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed ours! Thanks for joining us for your recent lunch meeting, we hope to see you again soon!

Best,
Jacob

Hello DPenn_11!

A classy experience at The Class Act is what we're all about! So glad your food and drinks were up to expectations, our Maikka Margarita is the best one in town. You're right though, the Don Julio Tequila will catch up quickly!

Thanks for providing feedback on your visit, see you next time!
