“Best Business Trip Dinner”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

I travel for business alot, and have been to many restaurants inside of hotels, but this was one of the best. I sat at the bar, the staff took great care of me and pointed out a good wine special. The dinner was great and I really enjoyed the chips instead of the typical fries that most places have. The manager, Kory, checked up to make sure all was good. Overall, great experience, I will come here again the next time I am in town.

“Valentine's Day”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day Dinner. The restaurant had a full house but the atmosphere was very laid back.
We loved the special touch of offering a sample of the featured red and white wine shortly after we were seated. The menu had a great variety of entrees. We ended up trying the pheasant and the Valentine's Day special ( Ribeye topped with smoked lobster) Both meals were just perfect!
Mary Kay was a rock star and knew the menu inside and out!
We will be back!

“Wonderful breakfast”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We ordered room service breakfast from Caroline's, and the meal was wonderful. It was large, and we split it easily. The only reason I would not give 5 stars is that I spent some time the previous evening looking on their website for a dessert menu, and it was not available. It would be a nice addition to have that on the website.

“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

The waitstaff is attentive at filling drinks and making sure that everything is satisfactory. I have seen the same waiter, Matthew, 4/5 times that I have gone and he has remembered the specifics on what I like to order, which is amazing. The food is favourful and plated wonderfully. The little things are focused on such as the candles on the table. I have been here for each meal, personally I like the breakfast. The Belgium waffles are made into a heart on a square plate, topped with fruit of your choosing. Yum!
