We went there because we were staying at the hotel. The steak for 42 dollar didn't come with any sides, but is was good. The Risotto for 32 dollars was too small even for me although I never eat much, and it wasn't better than...More

Excellent dinner and breakfast, very tasty and fresh. Service is also excellent and attentive. Dinners can be quite expensive but they have specials during the week which are very affordable. Part of the Peppers resort.

My husband and I enjoyed lunch and in-house dining twice for dinner. Everything was superb and thought it was the best ever in-house dining we have ever had! We also attended a wedding there and was also top quality.

I don't write reviews often but I was pretty unimpressed with this restaurant. If it didn't have the Peppers badge I'd doubt it would be as popular. Service was slow and my food was nothing special in taste. The prices are in excess of the...More
