Delicious breakfast, coffee was perfect but the service was very slow. They won't refill your coffee unless you chase them down.

Turkey Tuesday- very slack unfriendly service, we had to ask for a high chair for our baby and then had to ask for a kids menu for miss 4. Meal was average and buffet was very limited and had to carve the turkey yourself. Over all unimpressed

My family and I visited aaltos on Thursday, we first began with asking if we could use some coupons. She said yes and we were seated.

We had breakfast at Aaltos. The buffet here is a deal. The food was good and the service was very good. If you are in Grand Forks, add this to your list. This may be the best deal in town. While the food was very good and the price was unbelievalble, The only negative was that there was very little... More

TERRIBLE!!! Tiniest Philly sandwich I've ever got and expensive. Saw others complaining about their food too. Eat outside of this hotel which is located in the Canad hotel.

Had a breakfast buffet here one morning. It was what you would expect from a buffet. Everything seemed clean and prepared well.

We had several meals from this restaurant. The service when we dined in was great. The meals ordered for rooms service were fine as well. Plan on large tips if you dine in; as I said, the service was great!
