Seafood buffet was good and service was very good!

Our family tried the buffet. We enjoyed the salad bar and the hot items. We especially enjoyed the steamed clams and mussels. The boiled shrimp was good but a little overcooked. The mashed potatoes were delicious.

The view is great, the Jazz on the Trent is good but the service is slow, sloppy, and unprofessional. The food, once we received it was very tasty.

We ate dinner hear because we arrive at the hotel in a down pour. The service was poor, and our entrees all came out at different times. My meal was cold. We came for breakfast on Sunday morning because of the great reviews. We all ordered hot cakes or French toast. The waitress delivered them, and asked if there would... More

We went for a birthday lunch based on the Trip Advisor. We made reservations which were completely unnecessary. We got there at 12:30. We ordered 2 flat bread pizzas which took over 45 minutes to receive and they didn't have the toppings we requested. It was just barely warm when we got them. The clear glass plates were dirty looking... More

Room service: ignored eyes over lite request. No jelly for toast. Our room at the Doubletree Inn had a microwave to reheat our order. Club sandwich Togo on same day (should have known better). Got ITB while on tug boat tour in less than an hour of eating it. We kept it in our cooler. Suspect their mayo is not... More

(ended up canceling my entree) . . . but I just want to say the restaurant manager handled the situation very well. Due to her professionalism, I would probably return.

Fairly typical (tho expanded) breakfast buffet with standard fare: fruits, egg dishes, sausages, bacon, potatoes, pastry. Oatmeal is available. You can also order an omelette to go with the buffet. Other dishes are available to order directly. Starbucks coffee..

The breakfast buffet was great. The price of $10.00 was even better. My 4 year old ate for free!! He is a picky eater and only ate a waffle but some places would have charged him full price so I am thankful that Christoph's was generous! The food was hot and tasty. I had a make to order omelet and... More
