Good as local bar, but a souless eatery. Bit like eating in an airport. Staff fine, just food is basic and overpriced.

The menu is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner and has a full bar to add to your dining pleasure. The service was excellent, exceeded normal dining experiences. The food was tasty with a lovely presentation. The restaurant was able to seat from 2 and even able to seat 15. Dining was friends, family & business.

The full new name is Goodies Plates & Pours (per receipt). New owners took over from the Indian Casino owners earlier this month. I'm told the new owners own Gas Lamp restaurants. The menu is the same as the reduced menu introduced by the Indian Casino owners. Staff seems to be the same, but the prices have increased.

This was right adjacent to our hotel so we decided to try it for breakfast. Excellent decision! Simple two sided breakfast menu had a good selection without being overwhelming. Portions were very generous, well prepared and good quality. Every surprised and pleased. Service was excellent. Can highly recommend for breakfast! Did not try at other meals because of other obligations.

Fairly priced food. Not a huge menu, but what they have is varied and good. I had their half deli sandwich with a cup of enchilada soup (absolutely delicious) and a house salad. The half sandwich (bacon and avocado) would have been a whole sandwich in any other restaurant. My husband had the tostada with carne asada - he ate... More

The proximity to the hotel was excellent and the staff very friendly. There are a lot of choices in the area but you won't go wrong eating here.
