Staying at The Ramada Suites so Alfresco's is just next-door. Relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff and tasty food. Seafood chowder - highly recommended👍🏽Steak meal delish and filling. Salmon meal tasted great (hubby said), but the portion was 'light'. Reasonable prices. Would dine here again ☺️

We went to Alfresco specifically because it catered to our vegetarian guests. Food was not fine dining but good casual eats with good, cheerful service. We would return.
