There were lots of great selections, very varied menu and good prices. Quick service by the staff. Loved the décor in the spot. No view but convenient location in hotel.

We had buffet breakfast and lunch. The food tasted great and the guys running the place were very nice. The breakfast included standard stuff plus made to order pancakes, waffles and eggs.

I have been here several times since my previous four star eating and I have to upgrade the rating to five stars due to the excellent service. Whether I'm with adults at night having martinis or having an after school appetizer with my children and their friends, the service is the same. The staff pays attention and has great timing....

Staying at the Belamar for a 5 nights we got to eat in the hotel restaurant more than once. As there is a good selection of food options in the neighbourhood this was by choice rather than because of necessity. Menu options were excellent suiting a range of budgets and eating requirements. House wine was great value at $6 per... More

It's so good that I order an other one to go! If you drink beer, it will be even better! The setting is pretty cozy, friendly staff and fast delivery on the meal! Reasonable price and has happy hour too!

We ate at the Second Story half an hour before it closed for dinner. Our server was just great. She greeted us quickly and got us our wine bottle. This restaurant has a nice and reasonably priced wine list. For dinner I had the gruyere cheeseburger, and my wife had a turkey club, which was pretty good. The coleslaw, however,... More

Always a great happy hour where appetizers and some entrees are 1/2 price. I love the lamb chops, sliders and french fries for an early dinner. Service is always excellent -- and food consistently good. It is a bit noisy is the only bummer.

Stayed at the hotel for three nights and had breakfast in the Second Story restaurant each morning. The service was prompt and attentive. The food on the buffet was nicely displayed and there was a good assortment of breakfast items. The orders for waffles, omelets and pancakes were taken at the table by the waitstaff. Everything was well prepared and... More

Reading all the previous reviews on Trip Advisor I thought we were going to enjoy a wonderful dinner. Not the case... To start with, the dining room is not appealing at all and quite noisy even if on the evening we were there it was not more then 35% full. The seats in a 1950 style are definitely not comfortable....
