While staying at the Market Pavilion we visited the Pavilion Bar and received excellent service. The atmosphere was extremely better that the bar scene, service was personable and delightful. Plans to return. The view was pretty decent also.

The view is breathtaking from all sides year around but what keeps us coming back is the staff. Junior, Dave and Cheryl make you feel as if you are in your neighborhood bar!

this is our third time eating there. The view is fabulous - the sunset is beautiful. We tried the lobster/mushroom pizza - delicious. The staff was great. It is rooftop dining- there is plastic windows all around with heaters to keep everyone warm.
