I have been 3 times. On an average Sunday the prices are very reasonable for full buffet and unlimited champagne brunch. Never disappoints! However the prices go up on Holidays. So if you plan on spending a Special Day i.e. Christmas, Easter, Mother's Day. Reservations...More

The brunch was very good but we were expecting to be blown away and we weren't. That said, we are picky. We've been fortunate to have a few excellent over-the-top brunches. The brunch at Stein Ericksen Lodge in Park City comes to mind. It was...More
