We were so disgusted by the flies that we decided to forgo the free breakfast the next day and pay to go out. I don't think the food was so bad, but the fly situation was not acceptable. When I mentioned the issue to the hostess, she replied that the door is often left open in the dining room and... More

Our family ate breakfast here every morning while we were staying at the attached Holiday Inn. My Daughters enjoyed all of their breakfasts & I enjoyed all of mine - my favorites were Steak & Eggs and the Eggs Benedict Florentine (a special of the day). Service every morning was prompt & friendly. Our food came quickly & was hot.... More

(All for under $9- not bad for a hotel restaurant )... More

Dining atmosphere was pleasant and relaxing. This was however during the offseason for this area ,and it is most likely much louder and busier during peak season. The fresh flowers on each of the tables was a welcoming and much appreciated touch. Menu offered a great variety of selections. The burgers that were ordered were very tasty and cooked exactly...

My mother frequents this restaurant often. I've visited a couple times since it was changed from Perkins to Stafford Grill. Last night was a complete waste of money. The restaurant wasn't crowded, I would say it was moderately filled. It took a very long time for a server to take our drink orders, then she appeared mildly disgusted when all... More

I've been coming here for years and it's one of my favorite places to dine. The last 3 times we have been here we were very surprised at the change. At dinner there were tiny flies attacking us throughout the whole meal. The next visit at breakfast there was a dark lipstick stain on my coffee cup. The waitress just... More
