“Friendly & casual”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We loved the friendliness & casual atmosphere ... the menu was simple & substitutions were readily allowed to accommodate a vegetarian in our group. The downside ... the "fresh fruit" side was seemed aged and the corned beef hash skillet was prepared with too much butter. The meal was not bad; it was just not excellent.

“Out of Signature Item at 11:30AM”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

The line here is breakfast all day. So how on a Sunday morning at 11:30 can you run out of French Toast. Seriously? The seating was prompt, but the way the servers are handled, it took almost 15 minutes to get someone to come by and then he said he would be back in a few minutes. Seems our guy was covering all the tables on the second floor and could not keep up. It took 45 minutes to get pancakes and then another 5 to get syrup and butter. Not worth the hassle. The resort needs to reevaluate the management here.

“TERRIBLE RESTAURANT”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

food quality is very poor. Would not eat there. Once upon a time they had great restaurants at this location. They need a new one.

“Like visiting your Grandma's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

This place is located near the Straw Market and serves wonderful breakfast and lunches. Everything from omlettes to chicken and waffles available. Service is excellent and fast. Restaurant is small with about five booths and another area with about five tables.
