Very slow service even though restaurant was not busy, cold food when served. Taste was just fair. Will not return.

Experienced breakfast, lunch, and evening beverage at this location. Food was enjoyable with some variety offered. Service during lunch was very slow. Beverage selection was surprisingly varied.

What a disappointing disaster. It's pretty bad when half of your group gets served their full meal, pays and leaves before the other half gets their entree even though we all ordered at the same time. When our food did come it was completely cold. When they brought it out the second time, the side dishes were stone cold. they... More

The seafood chowder was so good I had it two days in a row. The salads on the menu looked very interesting but both the pear salad and the Swiss chard salad lacked taste. In fact I didn't finish either. The breakfast was typical so there was no surprise there. The furnishings remind me of a cafeteria. The best part... More

Set menu for NYE dinner. Starter was good (lobster cakes & seafood chowder) but dinner went downhill from there. They ran out of Malbec the Cab Sav they suggested as replacement was corked. Prime rib was decent but the sides were undercooked & cold. Dessert was buffet with little choice and wasn't kept stocked. We had no time to wait... More

My wife and I had dinner there last Saturday with our 4 yr old daughter. Although it was busy, we had no problem getting a table. The staff were very fast at getting our appetizer out to us. The Korean chicken wings were excellent and I would highly recommend them, There are too many for just one person as an... More

During a recent business stay I ate breakfast twice at this restaurant. The first morning I was in a hurry and they were jam packed - ordered granola with fruit and yogurt. VERY tasty, but not quick. My second time I ordered the buffet - reasonable price for the offerings which includes your coffee and juice. It also includes made... More

It was ok. The mussels were great but the batter on the fish and chips was twice the size of the fish and the fish was overcooked! You're ok on the seafood chowder it was "rich" and delicious! Price's were ok for a large hotel but you really need to change the name. Maybe try... " If you go outside... More

Went in for some mussels and a drink before the beerfest. Bar was practically empty when we arrived, ordered our beer and wine and mussels. Then waited, and waited, and waited, beer all gone, still waiting. More people coming into the bar, getting their food, still waiting for food and/or offer of more beer. Finally get a beer, some sorrys... More
