Great breakfast!

Breakfast buffet included: Sausage, eggs, waffles, hash browns, biscuits and gravy.... there was some fruit too but I can't lie, I am not a fan of fruit for breakfast. Waitress was friendly and attentive.

We ate lunch around noon in the restaurant. Our table of 4 and another were the only guests during the 2 hours we were there talking. While the waitress was pleasant enough, she had some things to learn about customer service. The food was good, but nothing special.

We went to the restaurant at 5:30 PM after checking in to the hotel. Had been driving many hours so were too tired to adventure into the community for a dining experience. The service was a bit slow, but the waitress was pleasant. My entrée: stuffed chicken breast with garlic mashed potatoes was much better than I expected. My husband... More

With all the charm of a bus station, this apparent icon from yesteryear (as I'm told) served a delicious ribeye! Fervent, blustering waitresses, local girls in jeans and tee shirts, appear overwhelmed with just 3 tables in the restaurant, and again, over familiarity is the norm. Though pleasant, these are not career wait staff. Don't come here if you want... More

My friend and I went for lunch. The atmosphere is wonderful and the fireplace was wonderful on a cool day. The food was terrific, however the lunch menu is limited. It offers enough variety to please most or all types of people. The salad bar was nice too. The chicken salad croissant was excellent.
