Buffet advertised as open until 10. Come in at 9:40 after a long work day to see it being dismantled. Ask why and say it's not 10 yet, got yelled at by the hostess, saying "Well they can;t leave it up all night..." Food was good- but I tried to avoid eating there. Overpriced and moody staff

We decided to eat dinner in the restaurant because we didn't feel like driving and I must say it was quite enjoyable. The waitress was so friendly and offered up the TV controls since sports were playing and asked us to change it if we wanted to. We ordered drinks, appetizers and dinner and everything was delicious. There were a... More

As a kid my parents and I would save up to have a winter get away to come to swim and have fun on the weekends at this place. We have supported the buffet for years and I even spent my wedding night here. Our kids have had a blast here as well over the years. Local people have kept... More

The Sunday buffet is the only good thing about Esthers Inn. The spread is fantastic and a great price. Skip the stay, go for breakfast.

This hotel is absolutely the worst I have ever stayed at. The service was unprofessional and I heard more of the staffs gossip then professionalism and assistance to their guests. I will never stay here again nor will I recommend it.

I had the fish and chips, which was VERY good. I dont remember what my boyfriend had, but I do remember he had one of the local beers, which was also very good. Very good value for the money as well.

We held our coaches meeting for the 2014 Provincial Ringette Championships. The catering manager and staff were great! They let us use the dining room which was very comfortable! We had delicious appies. We had 50 people, ordered appies for 40 and there was more then enough food. The staff were very helpful and friendly!

Brunch at Esther's Inn was a huge treat when I was a kid. We loved the food and thought the setting was amazing. Coming back as an adult I didn't have high hopes and was right on target. The food was average, not very tasty and for a big Sunday brunch, they only had one option for eggs. No benny,... More

This was my first buffet experience in Prince George in a long time. We were a party of eight and had no problem getting a table together. The place was busy but there is lots of seating. As a brunch buffet Esther's has a nice mix of breakfast and lunch options. Carved meats and salads for the lunch-minded and eggs,... More
