We came here almost every morning for coffee and their delicious quiche. This is a quaint place to eat for breakfast.

We enjoyed all our yummy treats and drinks here. They have flavors not listed on their menu. The lattes are very good. The baked goods were very good too. This was a nice place to just sit and relax.

Food was pretty good. Slightly upscale. Nice view out the window. Relaxing bar next door. I might eat here again someday, but I prefer the Buzzard Bar or Osage Restaurant.

We were looking for a unique lunch location on the resort property. Wormans was perfect. We ordered the sampler appetizers, so good! Fried pickles, some type of fried cheesy grits, it was all good. You can see the history of the place.

During our visit we asked about dining here. They are open for special events only. With the two restaurants open at Top of The Rock, I guess they are ensuring capacity at those locations.

Similar to another reviewer @ a property restaurant, I got ONLY greens with the salad - nothing more and was told the same thing the other Osage reviewer reported her server said, "it was cut up small". How lame! Service was mediocre at best and...More
