While the wait staff was great and attentive, the food service was slow. Ordered a burger one evening and it came over cooked and without some of the condiments.

I had the New York Strip. Melt in your mouth good. The French fries were even fantastic. The icing on the cake was, Ashley! She was a pleasure!

As the hotel restaurant, things can suddenly get busy at mealtime. If so, the kitchen seems to be constrained for resources. Food is decent, although chowder is barely warm and seems obviously from a can. Waffle fries and homemade chips are crowd pleasers. The problem...More

My wife and I had a little snack before turning in for the evening and found it at Rumsey Tavern. We ordered a drink and some waters, a bowl of soup and some chicken wings.

Ate two meals here - one ordered from the menu and one was the buffet. Just average - not bad, not great, however, wait staff was excellent.

A very tired looking restaurant situated in a nondescript corner of the hotel begs for improvements. We were greeted by no staff when we arrived at the restaurant... It took five minutes before a server appeared and seated us. The table felt dirty and the...More
