The Sushi was very fresh and good. We were served by Tawni who had a great attitude and work ethic. Salmon was ok, not over the moon but not poor. My dinner was great. Brought a nice bowl of water for our pets.

Yes, and they have an omelette station. They also had eggs Benedict as well as a Scottish version with salmon instead of ham. Fruit and blintzes too.
