This place is a Gem and the prices are not tourist trap rates. Very warm and inviting atmosphere. Get there early as it gets packed around 1030Am.

We were pleasantly pleased to find this jewel. Most of the restaurants in the area serve lunch & dinner only. I ordered the basic breakfast & was glad to be able to.order a pancake a la carte... and it was huge! It came with 4 slices of peppery, crispy bacon - the biscuit was tasty too - I couldn't eat...

This place was recommended by 3 people for brunch. It was good, but I was expecting more. It was just a few mins after 11 when we arrived and we found out that we could not have breakfast just lunch or late breakfast (which is not that exciting). My boyfriend had a good salad and I had the quiche. Service... More

Not worth the wait. The food was just ok. Service was poor. Also, I have never been in an establishment where you are sitting at the bar having a drink and they ask you to stand so they can seat someone else to eat.

Thank you for your review, I am very sorry to hear that you had a disappointing visit with us. During our brunch shifts, the bar is not first come first serve, rather it is host sat and included in the wait. While you are more than welcome to grab a drink at the bar while you are waiting for you... More

Somehow we must have just had a bad experience because we have heard nothing but oh, so good about this place and can't say that happened for us. On the rec of the foodie guy who had just sold me a car, we wandered on over for a late lunch, from the dealership...we were " greeted" by MS Snippy who... More

Hello Jane, Thank you for you review, I am very sorry to hear that you had such a rough experience. We have spoken to our hosts about the importance of a warm and friendly greeting. They are the first impression guests receive when dining with us, and I apologize for a negative tone being set as soon as you arrived.... More

Great food, menu a bit more on the interesting side, nice easy going mellow ambiance. Fresh fruit and greens help appease the guilt - liked their take on Eggs Benedict.

We tried breakfast at the hotel and a highly rated diner, B Matthews was by far the best. Service was quick and courteous. I had blueberry pancakes that were perfect. Bacon, grits, eggs, all good. Great way to start your day right. I only wish they opened earlier.

Nice fresh bread and fish soup to start. My daughter really enjoyed the Potato Lasagna which was gluten free. The rest of us were in the mood for a burger and it sounded good with the carmelized onion jam but I am sad to say that they weren't very good. We ordered them medium and they came out well done....

Thank you so much for your review, I am so sorry to hear that your experience with us wasn't as great as you had expected. An overcooked burger is always a big bummer. I can assure you we would have gladly recooked them, but I understand being hungry and not wanting to wait for another to be cooked. I'm very... More
