I stayed at the hotel and went down to pick at the brunch and looked delicious. The meat looked nice and juicy. Lots of cheeses and pates and shrimps. I think the cost is about $38 per person. Enjoy

Setting is very nice. That is the nicest part of the restaurant. Ate four meals here. Breakfast was very nice. Lunch was Ok. Dinner was nothing special, particularly when you consider the price.

This is one of the greatest restaurants I’ve ever been to. Amazing view, and even better food. The service was extremely high end, and everything about our meal was exceptional. Would definitely recommend for those looking for a five star place.

The view is even better than the food, but the buffet that they have on Sundays is really very good and is a nice place to take members of the family who may be visiting you for a while on the Connecticut shoreline.

I have been to a couple of weddings there, one outside and one inside. Both were handled beautifully, and the size of your wedding is ideal for them.
