Thought we would have a romantic dinner but this was not the case. Beautiful dining room with lovely furnishings. Guy on keyboard added a nice touch. Problem seems to be there is a buffet every night so lots of noise from the clientele. You can still order from the menu which we did. We had the filet /crab cake entree... More

I only ate here once for breakfast but highly recommend the egg white omelette. Egg white omelettes are often fairly flavorless but this one was great--had spinach and tomato and a generous side of fruit. I was stuffed!

It's a decent buffet with salad options including standard greens with variety of dressings. also had a fruit salad and Greek salad..... More

The buffet had different types of pastas. Prime rib was excellent. My husband had the fish. Wish there was a dessert bar too.

This restaurant is in the Sand Key Resort. We ate here for dinner on our first night and had breakfast on our first morning. On both experiences the food was quite good when it eventually came out as ordered (2 tries for dinner, 3 for breakfast). Breakfast was close to being a Faulty Towers experience with the waitstaff. Wrong order... More

Prices aren't bad, and the prime rib buffet is a good bargain; but the food is good but not great. You could do better outside of the hotel....

The food was excellent! I had the short rib and my SO had the stuffed salmon. We also started with the calamari. The waiter was very nice and polite and gave us the heads up about how different the calamari was going to be in comparison to calamari from a chain restaurant. The short rib melted in my mouth and... More
