“Overpriced, undersized and undercooked”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

My title should say it all.

Three of us each ordered something different - a salmon salad, crab meat mac and cheese, and chicken Marsala. Each one had to go back because it wasn't cooked properly. The mac also had a funny after taste. The portions were also incredibly small and the soft drinks were nearly $3 a piece with NO free refills.

It felt more like a hotel breakfast room versus a true hotel restaurant.

Truly let us down.

“Great Service inconsistent food quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

The service was excellent on both visits. The first time I had the Baked Penne with Meatballs whch was both plentiful and delicious. I liked it enough to order it again. The second time there was considerably less cheese and it was merely adequate.

“Best Food Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

The food was incredible! There wasn't a bad item on the menu! The Macaroni and Cheese with lump crab meat was the most decadent thing I've ever eaten and the desserts are just heavenly!

“Excellent Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The breakfast is plentiful and surprisingly good for a buffet. Plenty of scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. Omelettes are available if wanted. An excellent variety of cereals, fruits and juices are available also. I would give the breakfast an excellent rating. Lunch is also decent but you should choose another place if you are in a hurry. I ate lunch here two days. The food was decent, but the wait time was much too long for the amount of customers that were present.

“Decent Food, Prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Had a few decent, quick meals here. The tomato and mozzarella salad was great. Service was average, and prices were average. For convenience, this served its purpose as a decent hotel restaurant.
