They have a buffet or menu meals. Location is end of the Main Street. Great for large groups, service is friendly with good size food portions. Menu is varied from common fare to expensive so enjoy.

Nothing special here, just an overpriced restaurant attached to a hotel. There are much better places to go in this area.

Also, starting in a few weeks we will be rolling out our new pub menu with lots of very inexpensive options. In addition if you are a guest of our hotel you receive happy... More

Amazing Steel Cut Oatmeal with real maple syrup and fruit for breakfast was my favorite! Husband enjoyed the French Toast and Pancakes... Beautiful presentations and very nice servers and restaurant staff! Wish they had less meat and fat heavy lunches and dinners. Husband is Vegetarian and I am Vegan and we had to find our lunches and dinners elsewhere for... More

We had breakfast at Generations our first morning. The Eggs Benedict was great but it took for ever to get our food. At first we thought it was just our waitress, but noticed the other patrons were also having long wait times!

Looks very cute from the outside, with a large balcony for an outdoor seating, but the inside is old and not well maintained. More of a diner type food and the service was 2 stars. No one greeted us when we entered. The waitress came about 10/15 minutes after we sat down and seemed to be annoyed that we came.... More
