I took my friend here because I received a deal on Restaurants.com and thought I would try a new place here in DHS. First off, there was a large family there, so when we were seated I asked to be seated away from them due to noise. The restaurant is open so there is nothing to inhibit the noise -... More

I've eaten here several times for dinner and breakfast but I have to admit that the only meal that is very memorable is the Lox & bagel breakfast. The staff is very good though very friendly and eager to help

4 friends meeting here for dinner. We were early, so we had a drink at the bar. Selections were slightly limited, but luckily there was 1 bottle of Guiness, so my husband was happy, and my cocktail was delicious. Very personable and professional bartender and the view of the pool was nice. For dinner we had fettuccine Alfredo, Filet Mignon,... More

Very dated restaurant, but the food was decent. Had eggs Benedict for breakfast. We came back for lunch and had a veggie Reuben that was very good. Not much ambience, but we were there at low season.

When we first arrived for dinner there was no one at the host stand as we approached. There was a young man in the other restaurant, sitting eating ice cream , and he looked at us but didn't acknowledge our party. After standing there for some time a woman came out and sat us. She was incredibly friendly and after... More

Then one day the greedy land lord raised the rent and they went out of business......too bad they didn't buy the property years ago. Most well known little holes in the... More

The five of us went to lunch here and everyone liked their meal. The prices were very reasonable( I don't think anyone's cost over $10). Don't be in any hurry though, since it took awhile to be served. We walked around the pool area while we waited to check out the numerous spas and pool. Very old school Palm Springs... More

Not that impressed with the food, but the service was very good. My food was bland, sauce was not seasoned at all. Nice atmospher, a little cold inside the resturant. Our server tried very hard to please our group,
