This is a buffet style and the food is ok, but nothing that I would rate as having to come back to. Service was very good as my glass never went empty. They do make pizza fresh which was the best part. Not a bad place, just ok.

Nothing was hot and sausage was burnt. Pancakes, bacon, & eggs were cold. Croissant wasn't fresh. Omelette was ok. Service was nonexistent. My check was presented when I returned to my seat from the buffet line. We had a pile of plates, and no one seemed to care. Go somewhere else!

Everything on the buffet was cold. The temperature needs to be checked on the food items. Good variety of items. The fruit was sub par. For the price, it could have been better, but okay.

I was at a conference and wanted something in the hotel due to bad weather. Decided to do the buffet - it was really good. 24.95, and I had multiple choices. Beef that day was melt in your mouth. Salads to choose from, nice desserts, veggies, make your own sandwich, flatbread pizzas - normally not a fan but tried one,... More

Located in the hotel atrium, very beautiful setting. A tad expensive as expected. Buffett style. Two proceed buffets some confusion on which is which. I had the sandwich, soup & salad. Really good fresh food! The staff is friendly and the service is wonderful. Never had a 1/2 empty glass! Say Hi to Senedou! She is so sweet.

Nice selection of breakfast food. Quick in and out. Food was good, servers were nice. Loved the egg white frittata. Even my picky 10 year old found something to eat. A little pricey for breakfast.

Made reservations for brunch, and discovered the buffet was full of empty platters. So dissatisfied with kitchen. Our waitress was very attentive. However we will not come back!

We took our out-of-town guests here for a Saturday brunch, and I regret driving 40 minutes for the experience. Food: The selections are diverse, but nothing special or unique except for the exorbitant prices. A breakfast buffet with these selections offered in the crammed space with uncomfortable and basic seating arrangements should cost no more than $10 per person. Service:... More

Came in for breakfast buffet while staying here to see ICE. This was the Charlie Brown breakfast and had a great selection of breakfast items, all fresh and very good. The character breakfast area itself was not the big and they had Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and Lucy all walking around so there was tons of time for character interactions and... More

Seated quickly. Different options for buffet. We chose the full buffet which included the continental breakfast as well as hot food options. Service was average. Food was good but be prepared to pay hotel prices. Seating in the Atrium is nice. Servers will bring drinks and any condiments that you need.
