We only had breakfast there twice. It is buffet style and filling. The kitchen was slow to refill some of the serving trays. But the food was good and the wait staff was pleasant. There was no wait to be seated either day.We were there to visit the park and this place met our needs at the time.

The convenience of being where we stayed made it good. The food was reasonable and tasty. We had a view of the river that was right out of the window and that made it special.

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. I am surprised by the mediocre and negative reviews. Three of us ordered the local trout and one ordered chicken marsala.

We had the Entree which meant access to the soup and salad bar which was good, then followed by the Blue Steak which was OK with French fries not great! Service was slow it took an hour for our main to arrive and the poor waiter Jose seemed to be doing everything on his own,

The food is okay but priced well above what I would expect to pay for the same thing further from the park. Our servers (Dinner and Breakfast) were very nice.

The restaurant is okay. The food was all right, nothing spectacular. There is very little available, so it is what it is. The wait staff was friendly and tables were kept clean. I wish the food had been as good as the staff.
