Ate here several times, food was always good and consistent. Not the cheapest, but downtown and has a view of Mirror lake from the dining area. Would eat there again.

The restaurant was clean...friendly staff...breakfast was delicious. The dinner was ok but the amount of shrimp you get for the price is skimpy and the crab cake was mostly filler.

We were there for a little afternoon break so we enjoyed a few beers during happy hour. The barmaid was very nice and they had a good variety of beer.

Loved the fact that happy hour for patrons of the Golden Arrow resort was an all day adventure, the breakfast was prepared to spec and was plentiful the coffee refills on time and the staff first rate.

Everything was good. Nothing stood out to us, just an average breakfast. We had free vouchers so we gave it a shot. It is not a buffet. Restaurant setting, but we prefer a more of a local diner, that's all.

We tried to go have breakfast at Generations. When we first entered the restaurant were greeted by the host with "what can I do for you"? Who greets patrons that way in a restaurant. I wisely told the guy "you can get us a table and take our order for some breakfast, that's what you can do for me!" Then... More

Yikes! Not a good way to start the day. Let me apologize for the fact that you were never served. I am so very sorry that this happened. My host is very friendly and is genuinely happy to see people at the door. The usual "table for four" while probably more appropriate might start to get dull to say all... More
