“Plenty to Watch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Located inside the Hyatt Regency, the directions from self check-in lead you straight past 8 Block. Alluring and friendly, this place is one to stop you for a quick bite, drink and/or glimpse at the latest games on tv. Little coves to seat 4 to 8 people are situated on the perimeter of the restaurant with televisions in each. A large screen and others are available for those seated at tables or the bar.

Nicely decorated, the menu offered gives many choices for drinks and eats. Try the sushi! It's fresh!

The servers are very friendly too. A nice place to visit.

“What a $23 breakfast should be!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Marvelous breakfast with tip-top service! The buffet has something for everyone. Cakes, muffins, cheeses and meats, Southern fare (grits, biscuits, pork bacon), waffles and pancakes and much more. It reminds me of the breakfast at Atlantis in the Bahamas. The wait staff at 8 Block is exceptional. Keep up the great work guys!

“Excellent Breakfast Buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

You have to try the breakfast buffet if you are in the area.. It's excellent and the staff is also. They are very attentive to your needs and there is an omelet bar where you can get fresh made plus tons of other selections

“Lots to choose from”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

We ate the breakfast buffet. There was a variety of foods but it was a bit over priced. Service from waitress was a little slow.

“Why not serve on weekends?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

The lunch buffet is terrific, especially the tomato and okra soup with rice. What a letdown that it's only available on weekdays.
