We had a family group of 6 people so they put 2 tables together. The service was great and they went over what we ordered before we put the order in. They also came to our table to see if we needed anything. I had a Caesar salad that was huge, chicken sandwich, fries and mint iced cream. Other people... More

We thought we'd have a drink at the bar before sitting down to dinner in this very attractive hotel restaurant. The bartender, Pete, was so engaging we decided to stay at the bar and have our dinner. It was a combination of Happy Hour specials, bar food and the regular menu. We loved it all! The "Clam BLT" was a... More

So many hotel restaurants serve such bland food. They do a good job here with excellent service. The manager actually called back one of her cooks to whip up some food for us as we were a a couple minutes past when the kitchen closed. That's what you do to keep getting guests to come back. Hard closings in full... More

I dined here on a Tuesday around 8:00 pm. The restaurant was steady but not crowded. We were seated quickly, but it took some time for a server to show up. They were obviously understaffed but the young lady was doing her best. Drinks came quickly and our orders were taken in a reasonable amount of time. I ordered the... More

Good food in a Marriott ideal for weary travelers. Excellent chicken breast with polenta. Good chicken soup once we sent it back for not having sufficient chicken. Restaurant is spacious but cold in temperature. Friendly, efficient wait staff. Would have rated this very good save for having ordered the dinner special soup which never appeared. I forget things also and... More

We have been here a few times and never been disappointed. Food is outstanding and you can tell the chefs take pride in cooking it. Great atmosphere and an awesome wait staff. Food and drinks are a great value with good portions. I wish the hotel took as much pride in the property as this restaurant does.

Eat and drink someplace else if you can. Service slow, place is dirty. Bartenders tend to stay in one place and chat with friends and not the total bar
