Enjoyed the vast selection of entries and made to order omelette station, service staff really friendly, can get busy during peak times so plan accordingly. Also, a little expensive if you aren't a Hilton Gold or Diamond member.

But, am definitely glad a gave it a try. Can’t beat the patio for bay views and people watching. Service was great. Affordable, decent quantities. Ate breakfast here every morning.

We all know that some hotel restaurants are to be avoided, not this one! Service was great and food was very good. Very busy at breakfast when there are conferences in the area. But would highly recommend.

Not the top pick, but will do when you can't leave the hotel. Suggest the hamburger for $16. Best deal and flavor. Dinner options are very limited and reflect selected prices, even fewer for kids. The fish portions are actually enough for 2 servings.

I ate here twice during my stay at the Hilton, both times because I just didn't have the desire or time to go somewhere else. Once I had dinner (a spaghetti squash vegetable dish with a wine sauce) and once for dinner (design-your-own omelet). Breakfast...More

Choice and quality is excellent. Hot buffet with a various choice of fruits, meats, breads, eggs, pastries... Continental is also a good choice. You also have a cook that will make you an excellent omelette. Service and staff are nice. Price is 20$ for continental...More
