The location a large rotunda serves well for atmosphere and service. I must say that some of the best restaurants I've visited had this design feature which allows for excellent ambient lighting and allows the staff to see all the tables to meet the needs of guests. The food was exceptional by offering a wide variety that reminded me of... More

this is a beautiful spot and a lovely setting. Breakfast is on the expensive side but worth it just for the ambiance.

We attended a dinner for a small company here. The appetizers were fresh, hot and delicious. And that's as good as this review is going to get. The first course was some tricolor raviolis. They were served cold. Perhaps this was intentional. If so, all is well. Then came the salad. If you removed the croutons from the salad, you... More

We just attended the Thursday evening seafood buffet at the Seaview main dining room. In a word , spectacular. The cold peel shrimp were colossal size and perfectly cooked. There was a rowboat display with the shrimp and fresh raw oysters and cold snow crab claws. You could stop right there and be happy. One of my favorite dishes were... More

We ordered off the menu for breakfast. We had Crab Benedict with a hash brown and also a custom scramble (with cheese, spinach and onions) with potatoes and English muffins. Every bite was delicious. Our servers were very personable and polite and funny. A Unique experience - we feel very fortunate to have eaten there.

Went to New Year's Eve Buffet and it was delightful! Food was delicious and the atmosphere was first class. We had the whole family with us - even the grandkids - and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Have eaten here multiple times. Returned again for their wonderful breakfast buffet. Love the omelet station, oatmeal and the fresh fruit. We had a relatively large party this morning. Unfortunately my son had a problem with one of his waffles. The managers asked how they could make it up to us and suggested we stay at the hotel for a... More

The seafood buffet was a wonderful treat for my mom's birthday. We arrived a few minutes before our 6pm reservation. We waited 10 minutes and the waitress never came. We passed her on the way to the buffet and told her the order. Thankfully I loaded up on the scallops on our first trip, after that the line was really... More

Just what you would expect from an old fashioned elegant resort. Service is excellent as it is in the entire hotel, the buffet breakfast is as varied as breakfast can get. (Reminded me of the Fitzwilliam in Dublin) The omelet station is quick and well done (the service, not the eggs).
