We ate breakfast for three days and dinner twice in this restaurant during a recent stay at the hotel. We really enjoyed the friendly and very attentive service and delicious food. The breakfast buffet had a variety of cold cereals, fresh fruits, eggs. bacon, sausages and shredded hash browns. There were a selection of breads, bagels and English muffins and the world’s slowest toaster to toast them in! I quickly learned to put my English muffin down to toast before getting any of my other food. There was yogurt, oatmeal and a special 4th hot item each day. I wish they had served pancakes but they did not have that option on any of the days we were there. Coffee and orange juice were brought to the table and the server offered us a to go cup for coffee at the end of each breakfast which was a nice touch. For dinner I had a Reuben sandwich with French fries, which was delicious and served with thousand island dressing on marble rye bread. Very nice atmosphere to relax and unwind at the end of the day!

This place is about location. The price you pay for the food you get is not worth it. We ate brunch here and the brunch buffet was a joke for the price.

How do you run out of plates when you are serving food? And there was a known quantity of us at the meeting.

Food was good. I enjoyed the Cesar salad. The crotons were real tasty but a little soggy from the dressing.

We were staying at the Doubletree for a wedding so had breakfast in the Riverfront Grille two mornings. We thought the buffet was a bit pricey so we ordered off the menu. I had the basket of pastries the first morning- loved it!!! There was a muffin, two croissants, and two other pastries. The next morning, I had eggs, bacon, hash browns & toast- also, very good. There were alot of us, several tables had to be pushed together. The waitress was great, especially considering how many of us were there.
