Our waitress was friendly and gave fair assessments of the menu items. She provided prompt service. I had the turkey dip sandwich with a Cesar Salad. The salad was lacking -- looked and tasted like it had been made in a very large container. The sandwich was good. My wife had the chicken strips with fries on the appetizer menu.... More

Food is usually quite good and the turkey Brie sandwich special was very tasty. Coffee could use a little help though but that is just my own preference, maybe a brand like Seattle Best with a bit of body to it!

Had salmon for dinner, ham and eggs for breakfast. Both were good, friendly prompt service. Best place to eat in the casino.

Its a great price, generally everything is $10-$12. There is a surprising variety of dishes. We got starter soup or salad plus the main meal. Service was slow and the food was just OK. Portions were generous, I'll give them that. However, my fried chicken was so hard and crisp I couldn't bite into it. For the price ($20-$25 for... More

We met a few friends for lunch on a Thursday afternoon here. Always good food and good service. It was a bit loud in the main area so our server suggested we move to the terrace. Great idea. We could chat and hear each other.

After having to wait at the buffet for two hours, we decided to ditch that idea and go here for dinner. Deanna was an amazing waitress! She was warm, friendly, and smiled a lot. Please give her kudos!

Attended for their current Tuesdays-only breakfast promotion. We were greeted and seated promptly by friendly staff. Our server Mercedes provided excellent service from ordering to our leaving. Great value with the Tuesday breakfast specials (while the promotion is on). For these combined reasons, an overall excellent rating deserved.

Food was of an above average quality. Service not so much. We ordered salads and appetizers with our supper. Appetizers hardly arrive at table before salads arrive. Next, far too quickly, comes the main meals. The place was not overly packed or hurried, not sure why the bum rush on service. I find this form of service to be more... More

We had a twenty minute wait to get in service was very slow we were seated outside of the cafe by the buffet so sometimes it was a long time till we would see our waitress . The food was not fresh you could tell it had been frozen and fried . Not worth the money we paid .
