The staff is always friendly and helpful. My first order was mixed up but they fixed it without me having to ask and they gave me a free cocktail. Reasonable prices.

Every morning we have a nice selection of items for breakfast and plenty of good fresh coffee. The Saturday Buffet with the Prime Rib was awesome. The salad items were fresh and presented beautifully. Good thing our conference kept use walking lots or I would have added pounds!

Woman who supervises runs the place like a military camp, show your room key sit down and shut up. Very cut, unprofessional. Staff handles buffet food with out gloves? No HAACP training!

Breakfast was yummy! It was something a little different every day. And the food wasn't some pre-made heated up...stuff. It was good and there was a ton to choose from!

I recently taste-tested this food for my wedding. Loved everything! We decided to choose the beef tips, chicken parmesan, caeser salad, honey-orange glazed carrots, and fruit and veggie trays. Looking forward to it!
