I can't speak anything but good things about the Lakeside Dining Room. Wines were paired well with the food that we ordered. The wait staff was a huge help and very knowledgeable about the foot that was offered. I would go again in a heartbeat!

The Brunch buffet we enjoyed in December was great. There was an extensive selection which had typical carbs such as muffins, breads, and pastries, etc. There were 3 to 4 (or more) "not entirely typical" salads, 6 or more hot food selections, seafood platters, charcuterie selections, cheese plates, as well as an omelet station and a very large variety of...

Went to the Sunday brunch. Having gone to several brunches and buffets before so I know something about them. The quality of the food was really good. Very small selection unfortunately. The place charges $35 for adults and 15 for Kids. The price is outrageous, it really is. The food may be yummy but very very small selection, no complimentary... More

A group of about 25 had a luncheon at the Eldorado. Food was very good and service too. It was a seasonal themed lunch with turkey and fixings and desert. Everything was tasty and fresh. The meeting space was private and comfortable.

This is a great special occasion restaurant. The service is incredible, old style attentive servers who never let a water glass sit empty or a dirty dish to linger on the table.

We came here for their famous Sunday Brunch. We pre-booked reservations for 10:30am as we heard it is pretty popular. The hotel parking was all full when we arrived so we parked across the street in the paid lot. The buffet was $35/person. It is definitely on the high end but is worth it for a special occasion.
