We had a family diner there and the food was excellent. The fish was flavorful and cooked just right. Great server. All the meals were excellent.

One of Auburn's finest for lunches. Their Pastrami or Corned Beef sandwich, French Onion soup, Pot Pie, and exceptional salads head the list from my personal experience.

The food was bland but seemed fresh and Sarah at the bar was great. Another added bonus was the good beer selection. Best hotel restaurant I've encountered.
