We ate here while we stayed at the Boulevard Inn for two nights, once in the restaurant itself. The other as room service (reviewed elsewhere). The house salad was fresh, varied, and came with a subtle (not sweet or overly vinegary) balsamic dressing. My wife said the kale salad was really excellent with a nice mix of bacon, candied walnuts,... More

We stayed at The Boulevard for a night. We decided to have dessert and drinks at The Bistro that night. The bartender was very nice and helpful. Drinks were good - champagne for me and a whiskey flight for my husband. We also ordered the creme brulee which was decent. We returned in the morning for the breakfast buffet which... More

I have stayed at the Boulevard Inn several times. The Bistro's dinners are delicious! They try to use local products, which makes the meals even more special. The staff is friendly and attentive. Always a pleasant experience!

I've reviewed this hotel property before. The Bistro is the resident restaurant and dinners are magnificent. Local and fresh ingredients, inventive dishes...and tasty. A bit pricey for the area but not for the food. Good wine list and full bar. Outdoor and indoor seating overlooking the lake is very appealing. Today's visit was for breakfast.Being late September, the summer crowds... More

We stayed at the Boulevard and breakfast was included. The buffet is not huge, but it is good. The waffles were my favorite thing. We had drinks each evening. They were not spectacular, but drinkable. The bartenders are not that friendly, but the wait staff all were.
