I used to visit this hotel and restaurant about twice a year from 2000-2005. Their food used to be great. However, my last experience was absolutely awful. The positives: The view. That's it. It is absolutely spectacular. Save yourself the hassle and see it from the trail behind the restaurant.The food is pricey, but that is expected. I don't complain about the price. However, I will complain if the price is high and the food is absolutely awful. Denny's or Coco's would have prepared these dishes better at a fraction of the price. First night, I had a pasta with butternut squash and walnuts. Pasta was old and reheated. Sauce was gummy. It was leftover pasta. My wife had the vegetarian tamales with polenta ($19). The green sauce was most likely out of a can. The polenta was gooey and the tamales were absolutely dreadful. They were old, and microwaved. If you are going to serve older tamales, you should at least steam them. My son's french fries were the only decent thing that was ordered. Bill and tip were $60. Thinking it was a fluke, we went for breakfast the next morning. It is really difficult to screw up breakfast. I was wrong. I ordered an omelette. It was severely overcooked. It was tough. It came with potatoes that were old. You know when potatoes have that withered look after they've been in the fridge too long? My son ordered a side order of potatoes, which arrived in the same condition as mine. My wife ordered the pancakes, and they were cold and absolutely unappetizing. She had to drown them in syrup to make them edible. Bill and tip were about $28. I think that the fact that there is nowhere else to eat in the immediate area makes them think they can get away with this. Unfortunately, they can. It's sad, because I remember how great their food used to be.
