I have several dietary issues and the folks at The Original did a fabulous job of altering the menu to accommodate me. Made me feel as though I didn't have any issues, Great place to eat.

Stayed at the Marriott attached to the Original so it was convenient. Servers were all attentive. I drink a lot of water and someone was always stopping by for refills. Had breakfast and dinner. So yummy. Prices reasonable.
