We brought my Mom here for her birthday brunch. We've been to several different brunch buffets in the past and this one is really worth it for $69 (w/out alcohol).

The setting is quite nice. Relaxed. Sit outdoors if you can for a view of the hotel. Food is prepared nicely. Family friendly. Kids eat free at a kids Buffet

We've eaten here a number of times. They used to do a "small plates" menu, which we really liked. Currently, the food is very good, but the menu is rather limited.

Breakfast buffet has devious food with some healthy choices too. Dinner was good too though the menu is a tad small. Kids can have a buffet at dinner too which is nice. Good wine selection as well!

Lovely restaurant, with the ability to try the buffet, or order off the menu. We had an omelet, which was delicious, and the french toast, which was lovely.
