We were originally going to eat @ the Double Musky & decided against the crowds & ate dinner here in the hotel. It was a quiet, intimate atmosphere with amazing food!

We had the breakfast buffet, They had a pretty good selection but not large compared to other hotel breakfast buffets. They have a create your own omelet bar and the omelet was really good. Lots of fresh fruit, oatmeal, eggs,bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy and pastries were available. We were there when the restaurant was not busy and the staff... More

We visited the pond cafe for breakfast 1 day and dinner another. Its an adequate, albeit it basic restaurant. I think it may have been open for dinner as 7 Glaciers was closed, so it had a minimal range for dinner. Staff super lovely

Nice location, beautiful views, meals were pretty good. Just like the hotel, lots of potential if there was ANY decent customer service. Very rude staff. Problems can occur anywhere, but at this hotel, staff have not desire/interest to solve/troubleshoot.... For such a nice hotel, its a shame. Customer service makes or breaks the experience.

Was normal breakfast for a hotel. I had a omelet for $12 and waffle was same price. Coffee was $2.00. Our waitress was good and answered our questions about food, hotel and area.

The Pond has tried to reinvent itself as a steak house, but they should really stick to breakfast and lunch. Their breakfast buffet, even though its really pricey, always has good food with a good selection of fresh fruits, oatmeal, and hot breakfast items. Their dinners are not hitting the mark with the steaks.

Food was all pretty good, strongly disliked that breakfast is only till 11 (even on weekends?? Really??) Also, the first day I ate there, the waiter brought me a juice I didn't ask for and charged me for it.

My husband and I went to the steak night on a Thursday. The service was super friendly and efficient. I had the salmon cakes to start with which were deliciously packed with salmon. The steak was cooked exactly to order with delicious sides. I would definitely recommend this place for good food, good portions, good service and a nice relaxed... More

The buffet breakfast is good, but could be a lot better. The waiting time to get a table can be a bit much also.
