New owners are doing a great job. Buffet breakfast was scrumptious. Relaxing atmosphere. Attentive waiters yet not intrusive. Lots of choices in the buffet. Delicious coffee + they know what a Vienna is!👌

Great menu selection to tempt all palates, with generous serves. The bread that came with the salmon pate was a little greasy but that was the only fault I could find. The sesame crusted tuna entree was delicious.
