The buffet is the better deal

We ate at the restaurant before seeing The Way of Lights. We were told it was an hour and 15 minute wait for a table for 4, but it only took us 45 minutes. The buffet is the better deal since the entrees do not include a vegetable. The buffet had fried chicken, sausage and sauerkraut, roast beef... read more

The Shrine Restaurant has a very nice buffet that changes throughout the year. In addition to the buffet, they do also have a menu. The prices are reasonable, and the service is always good, and staff is very nice. This is a nice place to stop and enjoy a meal with family or friends.

We frequent the shrine's restaurant often. The food is terrific. And they have such wonderful seasonal buffets. And going in late November and through December one can see the shrine's wonderful lighting display.

The Shrine Restaurant used to have such good food and service. We went there last weekend and were really disappointed with both. Our waiter was extremely slow and would hide in the kitchen until he had to bring something out. We could never get his attention when he would bring out things for other tables and he would then scurry... More

We were pleasantly surprised. The menu wasn't extensive, but we were very pleased with the German items and the desserts. I was definitely go there even if I wasn't staying at the hotel.

The Shrine Restaurant is a wonderful place for lunch as they always have 6 outstanding soups (in the summer the chilled fruit soups were fantastic) and a beautful salad bar. It is the perfect spot to meet friends for lunch and if the weather is nice -- sit on their covered patio.

The Shrine Restaurant has been one of our favorites for years, especially their Sunday buffet. This past week we noticed the sliced meats and desserts had gone from great to mediocre, the salad bar was in constant need of refilling and frequently there were no plates to be had. Another change was the inability to order anything from the menu.... More

Very good food and special menus at certain times of the year. The prices are reasonable and there is a great store to buy religious items.

Its ok at best. The salad bar is mediocre as is most the food. What should be hot is cold and what should be cold is hot. The food is expensive too. I wouldnt recommend it. If ur visiting and want something different, try Siagon.
