We ate here just for breakfast. Our waitress was very nice and the food was very good. The views out to the river is nice as well

Like most, over-priced scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage links. They do offer a custom omelette and mine was quite tasty. At $15, not much more than you can get for free at many other hotels.

We ate at this restaurant in our hotel for the morning breakfast buffet. We were surprised to find that made to order omelets were included in the buffet as well as eggs any way you like them. Overall it was good and we were pleased with our experience.
