the menu for dinner is way too small. They have a plate for the evening. Hamburger should not be on it for a Saturday as Friday was steak. The clam chowder was delicious. Beer was a local brewery and was very tasty. I would go back again.

The pub burger I had was good, I even had the option of cheeses and they had goat cheese, combined with avocado. Really good. Not the best burger, but good quality. I had onion rings as my side and they were breaded, which is what you really want, they taste so much better than anything battered. I'd like to try... More

I had a late lunch at Shades and was immediately impressed by the low key very thorough and attentive service. Enough to be sure every need is met but not clingy or overbearing. The food was very good,,simple club sandwich, fresh melon and perfect French fries. Reasonably priced as well for such a captive audience. Recommended.

All the servers were helpful, the prices are fairly reasonable for the place you have if you're stuck with no transportation in the gorgeous hotel, the selection is wonderful. There were actually several times on my week long break that I just preferred to go to Shades. Plus, extra kudos to the servers who would fill my travel mug with... More

We were staying at the Hyatt and after a series of slightly disappointing meals there came over to Shades as the two hotels are very close to each other. Had a very nice meal here while sitting outside on the veranda. The rib-eye was cooked perfectly and we also had the balsamic BBQ short ribs. Ordered the four hour short... More

Has very good food. The menu is small not a big variety on it and it's on the pricey side. But there again it's in a hotel.
