Being in the Hotel, I always appreciate a restaurant where I can get a good breakfast quickly with an efficient and friendly staff. It was a great way to start the day.

Nice menu selection and you are able to add or exclude ingredients in your menu choices. The food was excellent as was the service. You can spend as much time as you wish without feeling rushed, or you can get quick service if your schedule requires it. Would have no hesitation to have breakfast there in the future.

The staff was very friendly, efficient, and knowledgable. They were attentive without being on top off you. The eggs Benedict was great!

My family had an impromptu group brunch here on a Sunday. The staff was extremely accommodating to our group, which included 2 children that needed high chairs and an antsy 8-year-old, for whom they provided crayons. For the adults, the setting was extremely indulgent and the food was wonderful and the portions were big. I highly recommend the vegetable omlet,... More

Best biscuits and gravy I've ever had. Who knew they could be so high class? Exceptional service and fair prices for a high-end hotel.

Nice, attentive staff. food was tasty. Coffee was sometimes a little stale, but for the most part it was a nice experience. Breakfast did not come with price of room (for us, anyway), and I'm used to hotels that give me free breakfast.
