Please note this is not a cheap place to eat . Breakfast for 2 can easily be $40 +. Great service. Good coffee. Food was fine but not great. Nice atmosphere reminds you of Vegas . In the casino complex . Can walk from several hotels in area.Have eaten here before.

I went with a group of friends and our server did not attend to us until 15-20 minutes, and after our food arrived our server came an hour after to see if we needed anything. I ordered fish and chips which was completely burnt and the salad had a bunch of raw onions chopped on top of it which was... More

My daughter and I visited for lunch on a mini Spring Break getaway. She ordered the Belgian waffle. She has not stopped talking about it since. She swears it's the best waffle she's ever had. She did share a bite and I have to agree! I had the chicken club and it was also delicious. In the words of my... More

We shared an omlette again -- the omlette with the toast and home fries is plenty of food to share -- especially if you want dessert. No tourist tax is charged. My friend split fish and chips and couldn't finish the fries. The carrot cake is amazing too. We each took some home -- we didn't share the cake but... More

Wanted a nice corned beef on rye for dinner and thought this would be an excellent place to go. I was surprised that the sandwich was $18 and even more surprised it was not even average in taste. So much grissel. Hard to eat. Wont be going back here.

Considering that a caramel machiato from the Starbucks in the hotel was $8, The Famous was a good value. If you're looking for reasonable prices, good food and good service, you are well served here - I found the coffee lacking tho ...
