I stayed at this hotel, and there were not many other options withing walking distance. This is separate though across the hall from the main restaurant, and it is pretty much a bar with a sushi bar--lots of tv's for sports too. The sushi I had was good as was the beer. They also later in the weekend were kind... More

We ate here one night. They have some sushi options as well as other food too. My son appreciated they had a kids menu with pizza to choose from.

Meet a group of people here one afternoon during happy hour and had drinks and some of the appetizers they offered. During happy hour they have several that are half price and a very good value and they were very good. I had enough to fill me up and didn't have to eat dinner that night.

I ordered hand roll tuna. It was scrumptious and the price was reasonable. There was always a crowd at the sushi bar and that is because the sushi is plain great.

Not wanting to go out as we arrived late this was a good option. Touch on the expensive side but tasty and convenient. Sushi staff is friendly, waiting staff a bit mixed, some could smile a bit more.
