We were planning on staying at the Breakers for a weekend this summer but will be changing our plans. The view was very nice and the menu had many choices but there was nothing special about our dinners. In fact, it was no better than the food that we have had at our local diner. The pasta was not properly... More

This was our second time at the Breakers. The first time was a very positive experience. Not so on Easter Sunday. While I understand the staff was busy, it does not take much time to smile and be pleasant to diners, especially on a holiday. I noticed other waitstaff nearby doing just this. We had two waiters sharing our table... More

Thoroughly enjoyed dining at the Breakers restaurant. I had the early bird special, although they gave it a different title. All the various items were delicious., especially the wild rice and mushroom soup. Waitstaff was very attentive and friendly.

The decor could use an update with - pastel colors with white washed, sea shell back chairs, a white grand piano, and etched calla lilies on the glass of the bar. We ate at night in November so we...

As a family we had several different selections. Steaks, Sea food and Italian dishes. Every one was pleased with their choice which came to the table at one time and was hot if the food needed to be. We actually had breakfast and dinner at the restuarant.
