Every time I visit West Point I am sure to make a reservation at the Thayer restaurant. Beautiful setting, very nice food particularly buffets, but most of all I love seeing Sandy whom I always request attends to my group. She goes out of her...way and always asks for updates on my family and my Cadet.More

We stay at this hotel for several weeks during the year. Unfortunately the owners/managers have never considered improving their restaurant and keep failing at providing a good customer experience. The owners/managers have repeatedly decided to understaff this restaurant and each time we come they have...brand new wait staff that seem to try to assist customers with only 1-2 for the entire restaurant. Out team each year end up helping with refilling water and other items. The managers stand at the front entrance and just watch as this occurs. Now, when Sandy is working , she is capable of taking care of her section and the other wait person's section if necessary. She always seems to turn the situation around and make it a pleasant experience. She is the BEST! I think it is finally time for the present owners/managers of this restaurant to decide if they want to continue with this restaurant or sell it to investors.More

Restaurant is very clean and decor is beautiful. Food was also great, I recommend the meat carving station. Great service from Sandy waitress. I cannot say enough how much she enhanced the quality of our brunch with great conversation and swift service. My only complaint...is that Sandy has only 5 stars on her collar, I believe she deserves a sixth because of how much she stands above her coworkers! Mimi the omelette girl also makes incredible omelettes and deserves more recognition!More

I don't know for sure. I suspect that you can order a la carte. During the week they offer a breakfast buffet, but you can order a la carte, so I would think that you could do so on Sunday.
