We walked over from the Courtyard to have a late breakfast. Restaurant was empty and was seated at a two top, when there was plenty of other seating available to make a guest more comfortable. Server appeared right away and took our beverage order. We placed our breakfast order and it seemed to go downhill after that. The breakfasts arrived... More

I had one lunch and one dinner at the Bayfront Grille. I enjoyed the chicken salad on a croissant for lunch. For dinner I started with their crab and corn chowder (very good!) and I had the flat iron steak for my entree. It was a very enjoyable dinner with pleasant, efficient service.
