Decent restaurant in hotel

We had dinner outside overlooking the pond and ski slopes. I had a New York strip that was properly cooked and well seasoned, but the meat was not top quality. Reasonable pricing.

We had pizza in the bar and breakfast the next morning. Both were very tasty. But my idea to have smoked salmon in my omelet was misguided.

Good solid breakfast, liked the eggs benedict and the bacon-cheese-egg sour dough sandwich. Try the Bake Shop for some variation.

We ordered breakfast from the menu rather than doing the buffet and our service was average at best. We were asked to move from our original seating location to accommodate a larger party though they could have used the other 2 tables near us without us having to move. The food was good but a little pricey for what we... More
