We have been going here for years- The food is great. They have the best green chili cheese burger in town. For dinner the chicken fried steak is a must try-Someone in our group had the prime rib and they said it was great- Salad dressings are homemade and the bread they give you with dinner is great-

We came here because all the other restaurants had a 2 hour wait for dinner. It is more of a high dollar restaurant, but the food is amazing. I would suggest it more for adults. We took our kids and they accommodated well, but it was a little fancy for little kids. My husband and I had the special prime... More

Food was excellent and inventive, but the wait staff, while friendly, was disorganized, apparently short-handed, while the small restaurant was half-full at best. Six unbused tables stayed that way for at least 25 minutes while our small party of four stood waiting by ourselves (no line, only wait) in the landing for someone to clean off ANY table and seat...

Bretts has a limited menu and even some of those items were missing - I tried to order shrimp to go on a salad, but there were none! The server was not able to find the wine bucket, so the bottle of white wine was taken off to be kept in the refrigerator. We enjoyed the pan-sautéd trout that went... More

They tried. Our waiter was top notch. The chef... Ordered the filet medium. It was cooked to temperature but somehow completely dry. The offered crab but the portion size was over a pound. Their insistence that Texas chili was soup made us all laugh. Overall a small corner shop in a hotel with high priced food. I expected more atmosphere... More

This was the first time I had to take pics to show what an incredible meal I was about to enjoy. And delicious? I had the trout and it was delectable, but before that my curiosity got the best of me and I ordered the fresh fried pork cracklins. This waitress brings me a HUGE PLATTER of popping, crackling porkliciousness!... More
