“Great food, poor staff”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Food was great but staff seemed put out to have to work. Preferred to make excuses about having to tend to room service instead of trying harder

“Most convenient for hotel stayers”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

My favorites include the roasted potatoes on the breakfast menu, the salads, and the pizza is some of the best I have ever had!

“Breakfasts”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

Breakfasts here are wonderful. The french toast was awesome. Served to look like a beautiful flower with cut strawberries at the center.

“Good Location, not so good options”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

Limited choices, lackluster lunch menu, as well as preparation of grilled chicken sandwich ordered [found a better alternative at the local Chik-fi-la]. Brown substance was removed when pointed out and what seemed like the same glass returned to my table. Though our group had submitted lunch orders ahead of time, staff seemed unable to handle the crowd during lunch break. Buffet offered the following day featured same sandwich choices, not many new items.

Dinner items over salted, opted out of breakfast based on lunch and dinner experience [separate days]
