Having stayed in this hotel overnight, we decided to try their breakfast buffet. The staff are excellent, very friendly, attentive and efficient. The buffet had all the usual things plus some extras. They will cook and omelet to suit, which we both enjoyed. They also have gluten free bread options which is often overlooked for buffets. I hope they expand... More

We stopped to try something new. The hostess quickly seated us to a clean, quiet table. A server appeared soon thereafter and offered a friendly overview of specials, etc. The fish dinner was better than average. The triple club was good, but too much bread for the quantity of ingredients. Prices were very fair.

I was prepared to hate the place, but I'm shocked how good the food and service is at a hotel restaurant. The Pork Milanese is insanely good.

Ok, not a place I will visit anytime soon. Heard great reviews about this place so the wife an I went for dinner. Wasn't as great as everyone says it is. It is not bad in anyway, just not as good as everyone says it is.

We had a terrific weekend breakfast buffet during our stay. Loved the fact that you could go up to the chef and order your eggs, pancakes etc. and the waitress brings it to you. Lots of nice choices for pastries, breads, bagels, cereals, fruit, yogurt etc.
