Walked in without reservations, and seated in a windowless room were waitstaff constantly entered and exited I assume into a kitchen. We felt as if we were hidden from the other customers. (So make reservations or get put in the corner)
Our server (Monica) was quick to refill our coffee, and was very personable. We fetched our own cream from the bar, and sugar from another table (due to mold growing in our sugar container)
The buffet had a lunch section of pork chops, egg rolls, turkey, zucchini, roast, and potatoes. The breakfast section had the usual bacon, sausage, French toast, and poached eggs and ham (Nothing special).A pasta bar is available, salad bar, and the best part....desert bar. The deserts were top notch, deep fried cheese cake, Oreo cake, even a candy table.
So the selection is huge but here's the kicker, it's not worth $28+tax. Our bill for two was $65.50+ $8tip. That's $74 for breakfast!!!!!! We did it once but will never go back.

Suggestions: don't stick your customers in back rooms, go back to your old prices, and try adding hollandaise sauce and crab on your eggs instead of ham squares for a $30 breakfast.

The atmosphere was impressive whith the combination of old and new structural details. Soft music playing in the background and a nice view of the surrounding area (hotel lobby & outside street view. The food was delicious and the service personal were very helpful and friendly.

We like this restaurant for a Sunday family bruch (buffet). It is a family-friendly place. The staff are really friendly, fitting the status of the 4 star hotel in which it is located. The only problem is 'parking'. The parking lot adjacent to the hotel is expensive, and above all, there is no attedant. If you walk around the hotel, you may find a parking spot although the surrounding area is not really pleasant.

Check out the friday night buffet, or sometimes even better, the prime rib sandwich...oh my. Melt in your mouth beef. If you crave good beef, this is the place.

The weekend roast beef buffet is just delicious. There are other choices as well, but the roast beef and yorshire pudding is the highlight. I have been there several times, and have never been disappointed. Beautiful historical location. Sometimes I find it a bit cold because of the high ceilings.
