“Above Expectations!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

When we walked into the restaurant I honestly wasn't expecting much as the decor is a little (very) dated however to our surprise the food was amazing ! I had the scallops which were delicious and from beginning to end it turned out to be a fabulous dinner. Our server Mack catered to our every need and made us feel like we were truly in a fine dining establishment. We left very satisfied and would definitely return.

“The Salad Bar and Service”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We visit the salad bar often where the soup is the best along with many various fresh items to build your own salad. Our server by the name of Freida continues to welcome us with her big smile, sweet nature and great service. She has to be one of the best!

“Excellent dinner - get the TravelZoo voucher”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Came here on a Saturday night. The meal was excellent. I had the Prime Rib. If you get the TravelZoo voucher you get 2 appetizers, 2 entres, and 2 desserts + a bottle of wine for $69. The value is like $170, so this is a great deal. My girlfriend, and my dog, enjoyed this place and ate on the patio. Excellent service. Highly recommended.

“I can't believe this is a hotel restaurant”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

I normally do not eat in hotel restaurants, but this one is the exception. The food is wonderful, and the service is incredible. Also great atmosphere. Got to go with the seafood.
