Love to eat outside so the patio was a great spot for lunch. Dinner is also available. Staff was very friendly.

“good food, slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

They seem to provide molasses as a side to every dish on the breakfast menu -- perhaps staff gets stuck in it? The Restaurant is extremely reasonably priced for breakfast, especially for a hotel, and the views are wonderful.

There's plenty of time to enjoy the view as service is insanely slow if you sit outside. Breakfast menu was delicious and the buffet was reasonably fresh. A good option if you don't want to wonder off property first thing.

“Crazy!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

We visited on the 4th of July with a reservation. The restaurant was packed and so was the sand bar. Our food took over an hour a half and was not that good when we did receive it. Our server, Dana, was extra accommodating and had the manager (we did not get his name but he was very tall) come over to speak with us. He explained there were issues in the kitchen and apologized up and down. He ended up taking care of our meal for us because of the ridiculously long wait. We were obviously not the only unhappy customers and the servers looked like they were run ragged. Not sure what is going with this restaurant but we are hoping it was a one time thing. We def. Would never go back again but given that the manager took care of us and our server did everything she could to make us happy we will try again.

“horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

This was probably the worst meal I have ever had not to mention the service. The food was horrible. We had to send one plate back and we have never done that before, Our waitress took a partial order then took another 20 minutes to return for the rest of it. She herself never served us a thing. The only good part of the meal was the bread butter and Hans who kept us in water and coffee.The Manger never came to the table to inquire about the food that was sent back. When we got the bill we were overcharged for the appetizer. It was corrected but if I had not checked I would have paid the overcharged. Over Priced.....Horrible Food.....Terrible Serve.....Waste of Money
