My only issue with this restaurant (which is otherwise more than marvelous, for an on-site hotel restaurant) is with eggs cookery. This is true not only at this restaurant, but at most breakfast places. A "medium" egg requires the entire white to be cooked, with the yolk left mostly runny. An "over easy" egg can have some rawness to the egg white. The difference is in the time left on the heat. (Duh. :-)) When we request a "medium" egg, we aren't happy when it comes with un-set whites. But we usually eat it, anyway.

Melchor and Octavio are the best waiters ever - always greeting you with smiles, jokes, friendly conversation, and great service. The eggs benedict, Dinah-mite version, are delicious and come in generous portions. Freshly squeezed orange juice was a must every morning. Dining at Dinah's was memorable, for all the right reasons. What a great way to start the day!

We spent four nights at Dinah's Hotel with our out of town wedding guests so we had many opportunities to eat at Dinah's Poolside Restaurant. Clean, convenient, accommodating. They serve their breakfast menu all the way through lunch. Delicious omelettes, french toast, eggs benedict. No need to venture to find another place to eat and I would recommend it to anyone staying in a nearby hotel as well. Lots of tables with umbrellas and service around the pool. We had several late evenings sitting by the pool with drinks, appetizers and desserts, excellent crepes. The staff even brought out patio heaters when it got chilly.

I had breakfast there twice times during my stay, with everything fresh and delicious! I also requested room service from them, and had one of the best New York Strip steaks I've ever had. Highly recommended!

I opted to eat here for breakfadt rather than across the street at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. We were pleased with the quality and value of the food, the service, and the setting.
