Got to the restaurant before 11 am. That is the cutoff for breakfast buffet. The hostess was leaning on her podium and said that they were closed. Thats it, she did not look around to see if there was still food out. She did not give suggestions of another place to eat. I looked past her and saw that most of the food was still out. So I walked past her. John had the chef make him a fresh omelet. It was excellent. The eggs Benedict I picked from the steamer was hard on the bottom from being there too long. That was not suprising. I got fresh fruit and some bread items. The staff was helpful and we chatted with the waitress about the area. The tab was $30 each plus tax and gratuity. The room was nice with a harbor view. We were not impressed enough to return.

Went for the breakfast buffet and it was good food nothing too out of the ordinary. Was all standard breakfast items but very overpriced. In my experience the wait staff was slow, not very helpful, and all looked and acted like they hated they were there. The view is amazing! The actual restaurant like the tables, chairs, walls, carpet ceiling, decor etc. all needed to be replaced and updated, everywhere I looked I saw something wrong (chipped paint and table, crack wood on chair, stains on chair, carpet and ceiling)

I took my son for dinner one evening and the young woman was quite rude, when all my son asked for was French fries, she yelled: IS THAT ALL???? I also ordered and split an appetizer. We also ordered drinks, lemonades and while I was asking for refills, I should have asked if they were free, because when I received the bill, it was $4.00 each time and that adds up when you have several. Where I live, we can pay $4.00 for a cocktail, crazy expensive here. I also took my son and mom here for breakfast another day and I ordered the overpriced buffet, my mom just wanted a small meal, but nothing like that except the kids meal and you had to be a certain age for that, no sharing off the buffet for her either, each pay their own, nickel and dine on every darn thing here. The wait staff was much nicer though, but ready to clean up the buffet line from what it looked like, we must have arrived too late.
