Quick and easy before a meeting. Food was actually great and I didn't expect it. I was jealous I didn't get the burger, but I was happy with my sub!

We had a really nice dinner here. The wine list was really good for a hotel restaurant, and the atmosphere was very warm and comfortable. The food was great, as was dessert. We came back again the next day for lunch and once again we were not disappointed. The selection of items was great and the food was excellent.

We held a large family dinner (11 people including 2 toddlers) here to celebrate a graduation. They had our table set up when we arrived and we're very prepared. They accommodated our need to get the kids' orders placed quickly (as they were cranky & hungry after the ceremony). Adults were served drinks from the bar with only a slight... More

Menu sort of forces you to try local flair of cuisine. Fine once in a while but if you just want a Club Sandwich, why can't I get tomato instead of fried green tomatoes? Waitresses and bartenders were a mix of happy overly talkative folks to bad attitude "don't give a damn" folks. Not a great place to enjoy yourself.... More

great hotel, and most of the time this restaurant is very good. I would only go four stars because sometimes the service is a little slow. setting is very nice, and the food is usually very good. I have eaten in this reataurant many times. nice to have this good of a restaurant within the hotel.

I went here after work with my company. We had over fourty people and were put in a room that was a bit tight. The food was pretty good and had a good selection, but the room we were put in was under furnished and left something to be desired.
