The restaurant is nice and with pleasant atmosphere..quite soft and relaxing. The food is in the average, the menu is limited, dishes are well presented but nothing to deserve a special remarks...service is good.

I had a large party for the Thanksgiving Buffet. First off: The food was not very good. They had a wide assortment of mediocre “traditional” dishes many of which were poorly prepared. For example: The salad greens had slimy black leaves here and there, the cut ends of the broccoli were black, some of the cherry tomatoes were mushy, etc.... More

The menu is very limited but most of the entrees are from locally sourced products. The prices are very reasonable and portion size is perfect. I ordered Green Pea Soup and Fried Green Tomatoes with Crab Cakes. The Pea soup was little watery but the crab cakes and fried tomatoes were delicious.

Stayed three nights at This beautiful hotel had an Ok breakfast And due to the thunderstorms decided to eat in tonight. The scallops were perfectly cooked , the rib eye was fair with a fair amount of fat and gristle , French fries were greasy and over salted. The mistake and horror was ordering a banana split for desert. What... More

The breakfast buffet food quality was OK, but it was virtually empty for all three days I went there. Nobody was paying attention. When I showed it to the manager, she was visibly surprised each time...really?

A group of seven of us were there for dinner in a space that had no more than 6 other customers at any given moment when we were there. We asked for bread 2 times and it took 15 minutes to get any. Then our dinners took over 35 minutes followed by a 20 minute wait for desserts. There literally... More

Food is ok, but I was disappointed in service. At two different meals, I asked for refills, but didn't get them. Unacceptable. Service was lacking, no follow up, no refills. I was disappointed. Do they still offer cooked to order? No signage so not sure. Please clarify. Thank you.

I had the breakfast buffet here several times, and one night for dinner. The breakfast buffet was nice and the fruit selection was good. There are different hot items each day, and the option to make an omelet (although I gave up once since there wasn't anyone staffing the station when I wanted one). They also have high end, nice...

We dined on Saturday at Preston's and I had a fabulous rib eye, great steak fries and a tasty garden salad. Our server was Hayley (Hailey?) who was personable and efficient. She brought our drinks and the salad quickly. She was attentive and incredibly friendly. I think that the food is delicious and well prepared. The next evening we dined... More

Good atmosphere. Good food: gumbo a pleasant surprise, salad fresh & crisp ... We do not usually enjoy the in-house restaurants, but this was forced on us by sudden change in weather: nevertheless it worked out quite well! Also wary of young servers, but the (presumably) student servers here were well trained & sincere.
