Great breakfasts

Had breakfast each day and was very good. Not sure about the lunch and dinner. We did have a drink one evening. The bartender was preoccupied with a staff member to provide any real service. The place we sat at was previously occupied and he didn't wipe the bar before serving us. Had one drink... read more

Initially, could not get 1 of the 2 wines we normally drink there. Had to find a 3rd selection which is unusual for anywhere we go. Everyone serves Cabernet Sauvignon or a Merlot at the very least. Food was not fully cooked for the linguini, it was still hard, for the seafood linguini, scallops were red inside for most, and... More

I want to first comment our wonderful waiter, Mike, who went above and beyond to determine which things would be safe for someone with Celiac Disease to eat. He was fantastic and deserves a raise. The same cannot be said for the kitchen, who clearly did not take things as seriously. I am assuming here, based on my body's reaction,... More

We had a group of 22, adults and children, and the wait staff and kichen handled us easily. For the most part, orders were accurate, and the food was very tasty.

We've been to the restaurant twice for breakfast. The first time the service was very slow - even hard to get a refill on coffee. Waitress kept saying she would bring some but we kept waiting. The second time was on Father's Day. I made a reservation online - when we got to the restaurant they couldn't find our reservation.... More

We were greeted upon entering the restaurant and the staff were attentive throughout our breakfast on two different days. I would eat here again even if not staying at the hotel.

Graffiti's served 25 family members on a Sunday evening. The atmosphere, wine and food were very good. Our server kept up with 25 guests at 3 tables with efficiency and a smile. Overall, we had a wonderful family celebration. Thanks Steve, Breanne and chefs for making our parent's 60th wedding anniversary so special!

Afternoon lunch with the wife. Received $50 voucher from holiday inn. The voucher was used up in a hurray. The price of the food does not match the quality. We both agreed we shoulda went to milestones across the parking lot. Lesson learned.
