The waitstaff was wonderful and very helpful with food recommendations. The view was A+ and the food was good enough that the prices didn't hurt :)

Had a great Thanksgiving dinner. All the traditional items were all homemade and delicious. Staff was very busy as it was crowded but, still took the time to check on everyone. Great atmosphere and a hidden gem for a hotel restaurant.
