Food was very good especially the fish and reasonably priced. Ship was served with 12 pieces, plus potato and vegtable. They have daily specials, plus a brunch on Sunday. Meals include salad bar with soup.

The food was ok but lacked flavor. It was a decent sized serving for the price, which was reasonable. I had a chicken breast with bacon and mac & cheese with bacon cheese curds as an appetizer. It was all prepared and presented fine just lacked flavor. I would eat here again if I had a conference at this hotel... More

I was at the hotel for a seminar for work with two co-workers. We decided to eat at the restaurant because it was close and we did not have a lot of time for lunch. We were told that we HAD to sit in a separate room because we were part of the seminar. It was cold and uninviting. One... More

The restaurant is attached to ta hotel that is in a black hole as far as food delivery so if you don't want to drive in to the city this is the only dining option. The menu is limited to roughly 6 entrees that are not appealing to most people, the staff was friendly and willing to help which is... More

I'm sorry that you did not feel that you received the value you thought you should for the food that you received. Our Head Chef and his staff try very hard to make sure everyone has a great experience and that we exceed their expectations. I do however feel you are misrepresenting my restaurant in your review of the menu.... More

This place has a fairly limited menu. It has a decent selection of burgers, some other sandwiches, a handful of lower end dinner entrees, and it apparently also serves breakfast. There is a salad bar with a modest variety of ingredients and a fairly simple buffet is available. There is a decent, but not great selection of beers and wines.... More

We were staying in the Sleep Inn attached to the restaurant so decided it was easiest to eat here. We were surprised at the portion size of the food and the prices were very reasonable. Even though the salad bar wasn't offered that night - we were allowed to go up and take salad and soup to go along with... More

I had a feeling it was going to be a questionable experience when the hostess found her work at hand more important than acknowledging people had entered the restaurant. The server was fairly quick to greet or table, but from there it went down hill - when asked if they had Chardonnay, the response was "I think so". Slow to... More

Our server (Justine) was friendly, attentive and took very good care of us at the table. The kitchen did not do as good as she did, however. We ordered the Chicken, Ham & Swiss Omelet and the Biscuits & Gravy. The omelet was tasty, but was cooked inconsistently, having parts that looked burned and others that were barely browned. There...
