Above average...

I've had 3 different dishes. All were above average. The menu in the restaurant has different dishes than their take home menu and the in-room hotel menu. And no menu is available online. Odd.

Let me start with the positive…the hostess was friendly and welcoming. Our server was attentive and charming with a great sense of humor. The view of the river from our table was beautiful. The martini I had was excellent. Now, the rest of the story. When you don’t know how to cook, you smother food with salt. That’s exactly what... More

The breakfast buffet is excellent. Lunch on the patio is a great atmosphere overlooking the marina. The Rueben sandwich is an interesting twist with german mustard.

We went to Christoph's for their Thanksgiving buffet. The meal cost $50 for my husband and me. This was by far the worst dinner we have ever had. The buffet offered roast beef, ham and turkey. The roast beef was well done. The amount of turkey and ham on their cutting boards was barely enough for 2 people. The mashed... More

When I made reservations with Mackensie for dinner, she was energized and after finding out that this was our 47th anniversary. She offered us a window table overlooking the waterfront which delighted us. Upon arrival, we were seated at a window table (there were several available and the hostess did not check our reservation). We had the seafood buffet that... More

Stayed at Double Tree for convention and had several meals there. I was impressed with the dinner menu and selection of seafood that other restaurants did not have. Food, wine list and service was great. Also had a seafood buffet which we missed on Friday, because we made the mistake of eating dinner at the only other waterfront restaurant in... More

Great patio parties in the summer months. Awesome staff...lots of fun! Enjoyed the downtown location and the convenience of the hotel on the same grounds.

Can't say enough about their breakfast buffet. Only $10.95 and you can grab selections off of the buffet, and/or order something from the kitchen, such as an omelet, french toast, etc, at no extra cost. Can't beat it. Their breakfast will tide you over until dinner! Nice waterfront location/view.

We love to go to the Seafood Buffet they have on Friday nights, the Buffet is $19.99 add tax, and it is cooked right there by the Chef. There are large prawns, steamed clams, a fish of Chef's choice, for the night, prepared in front of you by the Chef with a sauce ladled over the fish( if you want.)... More

We really enjoyed our experience here. The staff was warm and accommodating to include an extra set of straws for our toddler to play with. (just very kind staff...) My husband loved his meal: crab cakes, pork ribs with mashed potatoes. I enjoyed my stuffed grouper with asparagus (they prepared it perfectly!) The salad dressing was delicious! We arrived just...
