The food is delicious here, they have many microbrewery beers on draft. The night we visited the restaurant was very understaffed, although they did do their very best.

We decided to go to the Bruce on November 26, 2016 to celebrate my husbands birthday. There were 4 of us in our party. We were seated at a booth which only had two place settings. The waitress brought over cutlery but no placemats. We asked for placemats and when she brought them over, they were dirty and covered in... More

We dined twice at The Bruce Restaurant during our stay at the hotel. The Korean inspired Steamed Buns were good with exception on the minuscule amount of extremely dried out wild boar bacon. The buns were served with some excellent, appropriate and tasty condiments. If the bacon was changed to a moist pulled pork, they would have a solid winner.... More

Great, friendly staff with great food and drink. Had room service and few times due to the kids being tired and the food was just as good as sitting in the restaurant. Can't wait to return.

The Bruce is clean and well kept and offers large portions of well prepared food that is a little on the pricey side. However, the service we received negates all of the good points. Just left with the impression we were there for him.

We booked a group table in advance for a birthday dinner. The timing of the meal was horrible. Wrecked the birthday dinner for my friend. Service was so slow. People were hungry, had to go find a server to ask for bread. Some people in the group would be finished their meal before others were served. There was no manager... More
