Wouldn't go back

Food quality was acceptable for myself. Liked the rice pudding and honey covered pastries. Something different. Rest of the family was not impressed. Meats had an odd, gamey flavor. Omlettes were piled high on a cutting board of some sort. Strange presentation. Price was what got us in the... read more

Having cheap food is no excuse to overcharge people for water. Their food was far too salty. Clearly it's still open because of tourists who didn't realize how awful this place was.

Overpriced drinks and the refusal to give a glass of water is a major turnoff. The wait staff was inattentive and embarrassed me in front of other patrons because she could not explain herself she stated there was a ten percent local discount at the cash and when i took the ten off my bill left on the table, with...

Food was typical buffet food. Price was good - $6.99 Canadian. However, you are charged for your drinks and they do not provide tap water - you must purchase water. Would be better if they would include beverages or had info on their ads that beverages not included.

My family and I were enticed by the big outdoor sign advertising the $6.99 breakfast buffet. Prior to being seated, the cranky blonde waitress immediately honed in on the water bottle my daughter was holding. She said that water bottles are not allowed in the restaurant and that we had to discard it. It took me a moment to process... More

The food was excellent. The price of drinks was a little high though. We paid $3 for a bottle of water. I understand the buffet brings people in, but holy high priced water. Usually water is free with a meal.

The food was cold, dried out and low quality. They lure you in with a buffet price and then sting you with drinks that are insanely expensive. Do yourself a favour and venture away from the tourist zone and find one of the many good locally owned spots for breakfast.

Great deal for breakfast. Very reasonably priced, good food and good service. The second morning we didn't want to wait in line so we went to the diner around the corner and felt completely ripped off.

Wow. All I can say is I am happy the dollar is stronger than the Canadian Dollar or I would be even more unhappy. "Omelette" advertisement on their board is pre made and out next to eggs. Terrible! They advertise fruit and all they had was nasty looking fruit cocktail. I have had better selections at Hampton Inn or any... More
