A typical, but good, American restaurant open long hours (Breakfast to Dinner). We had both breakfast and dinner and both were excellent quality and value. Best of all, the servings were a sensible size! Good, service.

We stayed next door and this place came recommended. I should say that this place is probably great if you are a typical American customer who is used to stodgy, tasteless, pre-prepared food. For us it was just not very good. The service is great...More

What a surprise to have a hotel restaurant serving such marvelous food. I had the crab cakes appetizer and a bowl of clam chowder. The crab cakes were full of crab meat and brought to me on a very filling bed of lettuce, marinated red...More
