Had to go look for someone in the kitchen just to get a seat. It wasn't a busy night. Food was ok but very over priced

Breakfast buffet was nice, Variety of fruits, oatmeal, eggs, and assorted meats. Biscuits and gravy. Completely self serve including water carafe on the table. Extra fruit great for taking on outings.
