Good Food at a good price

Service was slow each time we dined, but quality was very good, as was the price. Extended hours was very nice as well.

The food was very good, but the service was slow - and this was later at night, there were only about 10 people in the restaurant. The manager came over to help me select a gluten free meal - he seemed very knowledgeable about it, so I felt safe. However, I did still get sick, so there must have been... More

I was here for the 2015 Jenkins User Conference. I didn't have a rental car, so the Breakfast Buffet (regular breakfast also available) and Dinner very convenient.

I am sure this place gets lost off people's radar- because it's attached in the hilton Alexandria. Have always had great food and beverages there. Wine list is great. Kim at the bar was great. If you like sushi- the sushi chef has been there for ten years. There are tv's there for big sporting events like the triple crown.... More

Had the breakfast buffet two days in a row. There were the normal buffett items and you could order omlets. My omlet was good. The service was good with no unexpected delays.

The manager and staff created a dinning experience that was very pleasing. The food is good and the beer selection is better than most hotel bars.

The service has a great deal to be desired. The reasonable expectation of breakfast egg preparation to accompany the buffet, falls short. The server advised eggs any way, however one has to wait at least 15 minutes for poached eggs. Don't go to buffet until eggs actually arrive. The resturante was not crowded at 9:45 in the morning. The inability... More

We ate there around 9PM our first night which could be a bit late for good food and service. Sort of lackadaisical wait staff and mediocre food, best to stick to the very basics like burgers and fries. We launched into shrimp and crab which was probably a stretch for this kitchen.

Just see the photos below, the picture says it all. Should have went to Clydes. Called in salad and guess what, waited 15 minutes to pick up and it was not ready. Waited another 10 minutes and it finally came, look at what I waited a 1/2 for and paid $15.00 for.
