The Shrine restaurant is located across from the hotel and offers a up scale dining experience. The soup and salad buffet offers a hot and cold soups and 30 salad toppings. I got a club sandwich and was very pleased with my choice. The restaurant is great for the hotel guests but many eat here on a regular basis.

Probably some of the best food in the area. Low prices, large portions! The entire cafe is clean and neat and the employees are extremely kind.

Retired friends meet every two months at the Shrine Restaurant to catch up on what we are doing with our retired lives. It's nice to hear about grandchildren, travels and what we do to keep ourselves busy. Lunch at the Shrine is also good. There is a wonderful soup and salad buffet ($8.50) plus you can also order from the... More

Our Lady of the Snows Shrine Restaurant provided an off-site lunch for those of us who were attending a show & competition in their Guild Center. It was buffet style and everything was delicious. Their mashed potatoes made from red potatoes were thick and creamy. The fried chicken was the best I've had in a long time. The bread pudding... More

The cod bake was delicious. Cooked to perfection with shrimp and scallions. It was rich, but I like it that way. German chocolate cake dessert was good too. The service was excellent. They did not rush us out. For 3 of us and a generous tip was under $75. I would return and try other items.

Love their soup bar and their theme dinners. Great for a quick lunch and in the summer months the cold soup are a real treasure. Brunch is a nice basic brunch were you can really relax and enjoy your friends.

We ate at the restaurant before seeing The Way of Lights. We were told it was an hour and 15 minute wait for a table for 4, but it only took us 45 minutes. The buffet is the better deal since the entrees do not include a vegetable. The buffet had fried chicken, sausage and sauerkraut, roast beef, mashed potatoes... More

The Shrine Restaurant has a very nice buffet that changes throughout the year. In addition to the buffet, they do also have a menu. The prices are reasonable, and the service is always good, and staff is very nice. This is a nice place to stop and enjoy a meal with family or friends.

We frequent the shrine's restaurant often. The food is terrific. And they have such wonderful seasonal buffets. And going in late November and through December one can see the shrine's wonderful lighting display.

The Shrine Restaurant used to have such good food and service. We went there last weekend and were really disappointed with both. Our waiter was extremely slow and would hide in the kitchen until he had to bring something out. We could never get his attention when he would bring out things for other tables and he would then scurry... More
