It had potential. A beautiful setting overlooking the lake on a Saturday afternoon,and a lunch that tells me to never go back, at least not any time soon. I brought a friend from Washington to show her our area, and we decided to have lunch here. I ordered a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant. The chicken salad was dry and tasteless, and the croissant STALE. When I told the waitress, she said she would make sure to "tell the kitchen." She saw that I only ate about 1/4 of my meal, and did not offer something else. Frenchfries came with the meal, but I asked if I could have a small serving of fruit instead - yes I could -- if I paid more money. No, I will not return anytime soon.

Our dinner at the shore bar/restaurant had an exceptional view ...but dismal food. Only 2/5 in our group rated their food as acceptable. This is the second try.....and our last visit. My chicken caesar salad had tough, dry chicken. Two other meals were were mediocre to poor.
Service was excellent. My dinner was taken off the bill
Been a customer for years!

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.
