The place was crowded and I'm not sure why. Tight quarters. I was bumped into several times while eating. The food was okay but overpriced for what we received and the service was a little slow. Not on my list of places to return to.

Had their corn chowder and fish and chips which were wonderful, especially the chowder. Breakfasts are also included with rooms and were quite good. Scrambled eggs and toast or oatmeal are among the choices. Did not like the coffee, though. Staff are especially helpful.

Restaurant is located within the hotel. Food is good but a little on the pricey side but the portions are quite large so if you are a big eater it is a ideal destination. They are known for their Bloody Mary's but I didn't think...More
