We ate here around 5 pm. The food was very good. The service was awesome. I had to leave for a meeting and I asked the waitress to please take care of my wife. She did and was very happy.

This restaurant is conveniently located inside the Hilton Charlotte University Place hotel. The breakfast buffet was absolutely delicious! The apple cider bacon was the best I've ever had. The roasted potatoes were seasoned perfectly, and the fresh fruit was really sweet, like fruit should be! The recipe for an absolutely great breakfast! The ladies who work there were very attentive,... More

The picture is a little misleading. That's a picture of the bar area - we were led to a much quieter room in the back which serves as the breakfast area in the mornings. The view of the boardwalk area and water feature behind the hotel was nice. The food was better than the average hotel restaurant offerings.

The waiter was very friendly and provided suggestions of what to order off the menu. I mentioned how hungry I was and he even... More

This is not the very best of options for vegetarians if you are eating here multiple times, but the quality of the food, and the service we received was great, all the three times we ate here. Group sizes ranged from 3 to 11, and the waitress kept up with ease. Fried green tomatoes are to die for. The fried... More

Better than most hotel restaurants. Some, maybe all, of the dishes are prepared from scratch (as opposed to the usual Sysco fare). However, avoid the barbecue sandwich.
