We attended the Restaurant Week event at the Dining Room. Few tables were occupied on our night. Service was excellent as was the menu. Great starter garden salads, nicely dressed. My steak was nicely medium rare although I had ordered it to be medium. My spouse's pork loin was a little too pink for her but she ate the well... More

I ordered the crab bisque which contained too much Sherry that tasted as if it was not allowed to cook into the dish because it had a very bitter taste. However, the fried green tomatoes were very good.

When our food arrived, I was happy with my french toast, but my fiance ordered one of the quiche dishes and there was mold on the bottom! He... More

The waitress/bartender was very friendly and gracious. Unfortunately the food, despite a strong recommendation from the hotel staff, was average. I ordered soup that was served room temperature -- off-putting to say the least. The rest of my lunch was average and bland at best. I would not return, even though the room is attractive and the service was good.... More

The crepes at Crepe Exepectations were cold and took a very long time to make it to the table, the wine pairing was often wrong and the server was terribly confused the... More

We dined here for dinner and breakfast and both were excellent. The crab bisque was the best I have ever had...just decadent. The service was impeccable and the prices were reasonable. You will not be disappointed.
