Yum!

The bar is fantastic - and you can park up and eat there. I would recommend this if not with kids as a more adult environment. The sliders we ordered were delicious and the cocktails are great! Good service, really can't fault it. Ate a couple of times in the 'restaurant' area - bit dirty, the... read more

We are breakfast and dinner there. Prices are very expensive for what you get. The food is "average" I'd say. Presentation good but taste wise, not so great, quite fatty.

We ate there for lunch at and at the breakfast buffet. The kids meal lunch of grilled cheese was some slices of American cheese not even melted but slightly warm. The breakfast buffet was nothing special - had eggs, sausage/bacon, pancakes, cold cereal, oatmeal - but no yogurt, bagels, or anything other than standard American breakfast. For $15 I expected...

The buffet breakfast is perfect for families. Plenty of choices: eggs, bacon, french toast, hash browns, oatmeal, muffins, fruit, juice, coffee, etc. We ate a nice full breakfast around 9:00 am and then we weren't hungry until about 1:00 or 2:00...after the lunch rush. Snoopy dropped by each table for photos, which was an unexpected surprise. The restaurant gets busiest... More

The breakfast buffet is quite good - not up to Vegas standards, but adequate. Service was excellent.

We were given breakfast vouchers as part of our stay at the Knotts resort. The buffet was terrific, hot food as well as lighter fare, and very good quality. There can be a bit of a wait, the resort is large and the restaurant is open to the public as well as resort guests. While I may not make Amber... More

The food is quite good. Two of us got salads that were fabulous and I don't remember what everyone else got, but I know they enjoyed it. Our waiter was very busy but he made extra effort to get my daughter a huge sundae for her birthday. He did not charge us for it. Be sure to eat during the... More

The wait was very long and the kids were too cranky to wait. We then went up to read the menu and there wasn't much to offer and the prices were pretty high. Already spending a lot on vacation with kids so it was more economical to just drive to Dennys.
