Family of 7 on Spring break, included two young boys. Had good service and a wonderful lunch - great tasting salads and sandwiches. Try the unlimited mimosa option. Nice way to spend the middle of the day.

The menu here is limited and ok for a quick bite. If you don't want to leave hotel it's not too bad but don't go for this place. Atmosphere is nice
