Over priced food with little flavor and topped off with a $2.00 charge for a soda that you get in a 10 ounce cup is robbery. The folks at the bar probably fared better

The bartender is friendly and informative. The food is not something I'd eat again. It is a little expensive and not that good.

Nice place but too expensive. Loved the attention that the staff showed us. A complimentary breakfast would have been nice.

I believe they do. Normally unless there is a convention you are able to get in. I loved everything they had and we tried several things many nights. My husband was staying at the hotel for 4 months.
