My friend and I had dinner there after seeing a show downtown. We had the pan seared scallops and crab cakes. They were awesome. The staff was very friendly and checked with us several times. Liz and Ricky went out of their way to make...More

We all went with the buffet which wasn't too cheap if your not hungry. In general the selection wasn't bad and the food was pretty good. I didn't find anything exceptional but they did have a smoothy and some pretty nice sausage options.

Weekday buffet available for breakfast with quite a variety of choices. Eggs made to order. Prices extremely reasonable. Sausage gravy was great and the waffles were to die for. Located inside s hotel, but had street-side entrance. Not your typical hotel restaurant.
