My husband and I started our day with breakfast here. He enjoyed the House Skillet. My Tuscan Omelette was a bit dry. The service was quite friendly and they kept my coffee mug full, which I very much appreciated.

We got here early Saturday morning so we were the only couple eating at the time. The omelettes and hash browns were great. Would eat here again. Would like to do the Sunday brunch one day.

I believe it is a brunch buffet. They had several stations and items warming with chaffing stations. We didn't eat the buffet but had other meals like made to order breakfast. Food was all very good. 😊
