“Best brunch and dinner buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Previous reviews were spot on, yes, it's pricey but so worth it, loved the selection of seafood, veggies and meat. We also had dinner buffet back in December and it was excellent.

“Wonderful Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

It is always best to reserve a table as it does get very busy. The selection of dishes is absolutely amazing, with something to suit every taste. There is so much food and the buffet is constantly being replenished. On this visit we were given a table by the window looking out on the "Million Dollar" view - something I've always wanted on past visits but never managed to get :-) Our waitress was attentive, constantly filling our drinks and clearing the dirty plates - always with a friendly smile. We have taken guests here before and no-one has ever been disappointed. Well worth the experience and money.

“Breakfast for the active”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Best spot in town to get both quality & quantity of food before heading out to the mountains. Breakfast Buffet was great. Made to order omelets, well seasoned eggs, hash offerings, mushrooms, mango French toast and more than I can list here. Also offer a variety of smoothies with fresh ingredients and Greek yogurt.

I recommend for those who love breakfast.

“Absolutely amazing brunch with stunning mountian views!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

We went here for brunch it was simply amazing! Had everything you could imagine eggs, bacon, sausages, hot cold cereals, fruit, lovely desserts, cheeses, salads, omelette station, duck, Yorkshire ( AMAZING ) prime rib roast, chicken, pizza, salad bar, chicken fingars, onion rings, eggs Benedict, smoked salmon the list goes on. Complimentary drinks, such as orange juice tea coffee. MAKE A RESERVATION as they get VERY busy! Even if you phone the day before! The brunch is 94 for 2 but well worth it!!
