Nice staff and good breakfast

We enjoyed a quick and casual breakfast at Big 3. WE asked for a table for 7 but most people did not show up. The staff set the table but when we learned that there would only be three of us they did not hesitate to be very accommodating which was extremely nice of them. The restaurant decor... read more

We had breakfast here twice We also ended up having Thanksgiving dinner here because the buffet in the hotel was sold out. Breakfast was very good. I had Eggs Benedict the first morning and the Big 3 breakfast the second. The Eggs Benedict was one of the best I have had ever. The poached eggs were just a tad too... More

Ate here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Busy, but seated quickly. Had chilliquilles and huevos rancheros. Kind of a deconstructed version, so not what you typically think of dish. Fresh, good, but not that hangover yummy spicy Mexican that you might be craving.

Nothing special but since hotel is a bit isolated it may be your only choice. Atmosphere is nice. There are also hi tables in looby if you need more room. They do have tv if you feel you have to watch something.p

It was nice to get to a 'real' diner for an early breakfast one morning for a diet of American food. Again, a little over-engineered table service - you need to know who to ask for what and who not to!

Disclaimer, we didn't actually eat. We expected a difference experience as we walked in for brunch. There were a few people standing but the place was not full. While waiting to speak with the host we looked over the menu on the chalk board and find a place to wait. We noticed the place was not well maintained with soiled... More

It's a diner. A hotel diner. Thought perhaps since it was billed as a local favorite it would have some cute ambiance. But no, pretty average. Menu choices I thought were limited. Had eggs Benedict (traditional) and it was very tasty. Service fine. Prices were typical for a hotel restaurant (meaning high). If looking for a good breakfast, it works.... More

Went here for breakfast and brunch. The service was wonderful, warm and friendly. Food was modestly priced and definitely worth eating again.

Lori saved our breakfast meal each morning. We should have known it was going to be a challenge after being given directions to the restaurant by the Concierge who just said “follow the signs” and gestured off toward the main door. The signs are not obvious so we had to ask maintenance staff for directions. FYI - It’s out on... More
