Great for large groups

We actually ate here twice. Once by ourselves as a couple and then again with a large family group after a high school graduation. We stayed at a hotel close by since we knew the breakfast buffet was scheduled here. The place is very comfortable. Prices reasonable and service was good. You can... read more

The prices are very reasonable, we had blackened chicken on Alfredo noodles, and the salmon with dill sauce both were very good. And wine. the service was just fine. IT was fast and very convenient especially if you're staying at the hotel. I would go back there for breakfast lunch or dinner.

Mary was a waitress and she did an excellent job while we dined in for breakfast. The food was delicious and the setting of the restaurant was very close to our hotel and made for a great end to our trip!

Sorry folks but breakfast was pretty bad last week. French toast was ok, but hash browns seemed more microwaved than fried. Coffee tasted bitter and the juice watered down.

food was good, fairly reasonable priced. Hotel looked to be high end and we went in with a soccer team. They treated us great and took care of us right away.

Xavier's Restaurant is a must for any meal -- while they specialize in breakfast we ate dinner and it was absolutely suburb! I had the prawn cocktail and pot roast. In the last two week's on vacation from San Francisco north to Portland this was absolutely the best meal I have had!! The prawns were very fresh and cooked to... More

Tonight I walked out of this restaurant. Yes, I know the nacho special was over at 6:00 pm, but they looked so good at the table next to mine. That lady must have ordered hers at 5:59 although she wasn't served until the moment I walked by at 6:10. Looking at the menu it seemed that the ingredients are used... More

not worth it. Advertised was steak and lobster for $18.99 and I thought wow, what a deal. Save your money! The lobster was cooked well but the steak was the toughest piece of meat that I have ever had. I could barely cut it with a steak knife and the vegetables tasted as if they came out of a bag...

Have been to this restaurant many, many times over the years. It is always consistently good. I like that they have a couple of separate rooms with high ceilings that can accommodate a large family or meeting. There breakfasts are excellent and served all day. I had a dinner meeting with a group planning a high school reunion and we... More

Ambiance: 1990s Best Western (plain, ordinary) Food: poorly seasoned. I had steak & lobster. The lobster was actually well cooked. The steak was unseasoned and tough. The broiled red potatos were dry and unseasoned. The cheesecake was delicious, but not the cheesecake depicted on the menu. The roll clearly came from a bag and tasted as if it were previously...
