A group of 18 of us went for the early bird special dinner. We were served in a timely manner, the food was great and menu was extensive for an early bird special. Very impressed. I had not been here since 1984.

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.
