The breakfast buffet was great here - good value and a step up from the usual US fare which we were getting bored with after 10 days on the road. Dinner was also good, if not amazing - the Parmesan fries especially went down well.

Nice outdoor seating, and lovely to watch the hummingbirds feeding as the sun went down - very special for us cold climate dwellers.

$7.95 for buffet breakfast, and delicious coffee was extra - a great deal. The fruit was so fresh and tasty. Plenty of choice. Open early so we could get out on the trails before the sun.

We decided to have dinner here on our first night's arrival into town. We arrived at 5:30pm so we could beat the crowds. We were somewhat greeted by a not so friendly/professional trio of three fairly young individuals at the hostess stand. The three of them stood there and stared at us for a few minutes and I could see them nudging each other. They were either caught talking about us or trying to decide who was going to actually get up off their lazy butts and seat us. Not a great way to make a first impression. We ordered the baked Brie in a pastry with a sauce on it as an appetizer. It had the potential to be something good but was not. It had way too much sauce (my husband and I never complain about too much sauce). The pastry part started to become chewy after about a minute, which makes me think it was microwaved. Shame on them! My husband and I both ordered buffalo burgers that were juicy but absolutely no flavor. Our server did a good job but could be less "robotic" and more sincere. The young man who was removing plates from the table would ask "are you finished?" instead of "May I please remove your plate?". This place was way overpriced for the quality of food and service. We will definitely not be back!

I read the reviews and decided to try it despite it being Friday night during busy hours. We weren't disappointed. We had a group of 5 which should make it harder to seat, but we were greeted and seated within 5 minutes. Waiter arrived and drinks ordered within 10 mins. Menu was as expected and food was great. It was prepared correctly. Dessert menu was limited but adequate. After being here a week, this has to be one of the top two restaurants.

Everyone in the family enjoyed their meals- 4 adults & 2 kids. Did not have desserts as meals were filling. Appealing plate presentation and great flavors.
