We had a lovely, low-key happy hour meal here with our seven year old boy. Mac and cheese, BBQ chicken drummies, and onion rings with fabulous homemade ranch dressing. A modest $5 wine pour and a tasty $5 draft beer. We added a kale salad from the regular dinner menu to round out the offerings. A view of the pool,... More

Not impressed with the cleanliness of the place. I found few dirty glasses/cups on my table. But, very friendly staff! The Croissant was fresh only the first day and the rest of my stay it was not.

I had dinner here and breakfast in the morning while staying at the Hilton Waterfront hotel. This restaurant includes a bar, indoor seating, and an outdoor patio. As usual for resort hotels, the prices are high, but the food is good and the atmosphere is relaxing. Service was attentive and friendly and all the food items are freshly prepared.
