We stayed in the Silversmith Hotel, which is above Ada's (hotel entrance is to the right of Ada's), and our room rate included breakfast at Ada's. It was your standard breakfast fare: pancakes, french toast, omelettes, etc. The food and service were very good.

Seas used to be a local favorite, when it was run by it's original management. Since then, it seems that both the food and service have fallen significantly. We don't go anymore and it seems that few people do.

We were staying at the Silversmith and decided to give Ada's a try. I had the Zayde's Favorite Potato Pancake Corned Beef sandwich and my husband had the Francheezie sandwich. Mine was by far the best choice. The pancake outer bread tasted wonderful and really...More

My mom and I were here on Mother's day. Although the wait staff was friendly, and the food came in a decent amount of time, it was over-priced and wasn't fantasic. They also provide room service for the hotel next door (Silversmith), and I had...More

shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
