we visited the hotel for dinner because their fried chicken was supposed to be wonderful. We had to order the complete meal for $36 which included an appetizer and salad....which I did not want. The chicken leg and thigh was very very dry and very small. It was horrible.. I asked for a potato and had to have the non descript rice.... which I did not eat. I was so disappointed and I did report it to the people who were in charge. The general manager was not there. I would never return there to eat again... I ended up not being able to at the meal --but did have a a cup of soup just so I would have some sort of dinner. The clam chowder was ok....
