This is open for breakfast on a first come first serve basis that works like clockwork. We hardly waited over 15 minutes at peak times.

This was one of my least favorite places in the hotel. The view was awesome sitting among the floating Lillie Pads. However the menu was limited.

Wherever you wander in the Opryland Hotel you will usually end up close to Cascades which is handy to the check-in desks, Go early as the hotel guests line up to grab breakfast before heading out on their day's activities.

I chose to eat the breakfast buffet here the other morning and then was forced with co-works to eat lunch as well. I will review both starting with breakfast. Breakfast: I needed a real breakfast, not some microwaved sausage patty on a biscuit, so I...More
