Solid, tasty food. Friendly service. New Chef has apparently been an excellent choice, chooses fresh ingredients and it shows.

We've dined here before, Friday Fish Fry(s), Easter, Thanksgiving etc., etc. This Thanksgiving we had to wait to be seated. They seemed a little frazzled. The service was very nice, re-filling water as needed etc. The buffet was well stocked and had so many choices, salads, shrimp, smoked salmon and hot varieties, all well kept. Cold items chilled, and hot... More

We usually dine here when staying, and did both dinner and breakfast this time. The food is great and very reasonable, and the service is excellent!!

I will say, I stay in this hotel frequently and normally just get a drink at the bar. My last experience wasn't great with the food but it wasn't bad either. The cup of enchilada soup was good but large, the burger was ok and I think the bun was dense for the heaviness of the burger. I had breakfast... More

We were there for the Friday night fish fry. The fish was okay, The salad bar and clam chowder were much better. We took much of the fish and frys home for lunch the following day. The entertainment book coupon made this a reasonable cost

Food and service was good, just a little pricey. Very upscale, but felt comfortable in shorts and a t-shirt. Hostess was very helpful -- we didn't really know what we wanted for supper.

My husband and I received a gift certificate to Innovation, so we decided to give it a try for dinner. We made a reservation for Saturday night, but there was no need. The place was pretty much empty. After dining, I know why. The service was minimal. The woman who filled our water glasses spilled quite a bit, but either... More
