The food was satisfactory, but service was slow and the food was drastically overpriced. I waited a bit too long to be seated, too long to give my order, and too long to receive my food. Servers were cheerful and courteous.

This place looks dated and stodgy. Almost from another era. The food was mediocre at best, the salad limp, the entre' just luke warm. The service was virtually non existent. We almost had to go to the kitchen to find out what happened. Odd since we were the only ones dining. Not likely I will come here to eat again.

We went here for Mother's Day brunch. The food on the buffet was good and they had a good variety. I would have preferred more fresh fruits. They only had about three that day. This was the second time we have been here and we noticed both times the line to get omelets and waffles (it is the same line)... More

Breakfast and Dinner buffets was excellent. Staff is wonderful with one exception. I ate lunch on Friday and the staff was running behind taking a while to get food served. Both the chef and waitress were working as fast as they could. The manager (or whoever he was) just stood leaning on the warming table watching the staff and constantly... More

We needed a meal later at night and didn't want to go out searching, especially since we knew that the usual national suspects were some drive away on Wannamaker Road. The meal we had (some kind of chicken with mushrooms and Dijon sauce) was edible but not outstanding. Chicken was rather dry and overcooked and the dijon all the sauce... More

Breakfast was the only meal I partook of at this restaurant, but the offerings were good and plentiful. There was a nice mix of fresh fruit, cold cereal, yogurt, breakfast beverages, and hot food (sausage, bacon, eggs, biscuit and gravy and more).

Food was very bland. Too expensive for what you get. There was only one other party there & it still took forever for us to get service. Once we did it was forever for us to get our food.

With our large party of people, we had just about everything on the menu and it was all good...plus desserts! Bar staff was great and how poor Jewels remembered everyone's order it amazes me. Great Job Gals and Guys! Oh and Brandon Rocks too!

After touring the capitol with a group of 50 people we stopped here for lunch. They had reserved tables for us. The wait staff was hit and miss. However, the buffet was good. The salad greens were excellent and so was the soup. I had chicken in sauce and my husband had the meatloaf. Both were OK. As is the... More
