Had a really tasty burger, arrived medium rare as requested. They need to use a better bun. Otherwise, it was very good. Breakfast - OJ is fresh-squeezed and fantastic. Eggs arrived as ordered (scrambled, wet) with really good potatoes.

I'm sure most staff are well trained we just got the one that wasn't. Waitress awkwardly refused to correct a clearly incorrect dish. made several strange and condescending remarks and then just left...without handing us off to anyone. among the worst service I've ever experienced anywhere. why risk it go elsewhere.

Food was great. The service was exceptional. Try their signature candy bar dessert....amazing.

We ate here since was easier than going out of the hotel. They have very small coffee cups, so you need frequent refills. The servers are slow to refill, but they won’t leave a carafe on your table. After we ordered, we were busy visiting, but eventually noticed that it had been a very long time. Eventually, our food came out with an apology (but no explanation). People who just ordered oatmeal were served quickly and left while we still sat there.

The House Scramble was tempting, but I went with the Black Forest Ham and Tillamook cheese on the American omelet. It was tasty (how could it not be?) and the potatoes had excellent herbs.

With the slow service and less-than-impressive hotel, we won’t be back.
