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.

Last night after a meeting a staff member and I went out for a late supper. We enjoyed the freshest ingredients, polite server and delicous sandwiches! Rather than the side chips, we upgraded to have the vegetable of the day which was asparagus. It was fresh and delicious. I had the grilled chicken club, it has avocado and was on... More

It is NEVER open on Christmas day. Bring your own food and utensils if you are staying in the adjoining hotel, and utilize the refrigerator and microwave in your room. The breakfast is a buffet only. You cannot order from a menu for breakfast. Breakfast is heavy on breads, sweet rolls, waffles, French toast, biscuits and gravy. Healthier options include... More
