Slow service, buffet was not replentished in a timely manner, and foods that should have been served cold (e.g., fruit, overnight oats, yogurt) were served room temp.

The food and service was fantastic. The ambience is more of the breakfast, lunch place at a resort. For dinner, not a romantic place but the food is great.

This was my first visit to this restaurant. I enjoyed the meal. The menu was limited, but the hamburger that I ordered was outstanding. With the prevalence of fast food, sometimes you forget what real beef tastes like! The service was excellent. The decor or ambiance was not special but this was a very nice restaurant, much better than most hotel cafes.

I made a reservation for 4 people 24 hours in advance. When we got there we waited for 25 minutes before being seated. Onced seated we waited for one hour for our food before we were told that our order was just summited to the chef and that we would have to wait another hour. We left dissatisfied, dissapointed, and not to mention super hungry. We had to attend a meeting so we were left hungry for hours thanks to Ironwood American Kitchen.

While the food was great, the selections were very limited. The fact that they catered to my daughters food allergy was incredibly wonderful considering how horrid a time we had finding food while we vacationed in California.

The portion sizes for price was not what we expected. I don’t normally like leaving still hungry so make sure you order an appetizer too!

For the price of the food, there really wasn't anything spectacular compared to what we could have had elsewhere for half the cost. One of the kids ordered a cheeseburger...and they didn't even put cheese on the burger. It was good service...but had it not been for the resort credit we would not go again.

This time we sat on the patio for lunch and last time it was dinner. Cheeseburger and nachos were amazing. During lunch they had “bird security” which was a hawk. That was cool.

Our expectations were quite high upon arrival. The reality was quite different.

We had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation time for the table. The menu was quite limited and the service was slow. The ambiance was the one saving grace.

For the price & location, we expected a lot more from the Princess. To give a fair evaluation of our experience is pushing it.

James, our server, made us feel welcome and cared for. We never had to ask for attention, he was very attentive. Prices are high for families $25 average for breakfast meal. Food was good. They sat a large group by us and it made the noise level high. There was another area where no one was sitting and they could have sat us apart from each other - I think that would have been nicer.

The waitress should have known the specials on Thanksgiving Day. We really wanted thanksgiving turkey and stuffing but she told us it wasn’t available and then the table next to us got it while we ate grilled cheese and turkey sandwiches I was bummed to say the least. Won’t go back.

Nowhere on the website did it say that the breakfast menu and "all day" menu are not available on the weekends. Website should clearly indicate "buffet breakfast only" on weekends . $28 for pancakes and fruit?! 👎🏼

Food was good, but not sure it was worth what we paid. The fish & chips I ordered, I thought was great. But the burger my husband ordered said it was just 'ok'. The pizza my son ordered, was so spicy he couldn't eat it. The staff is beyond outgoing! Very friendly. The waiter came back to check on everything several times, but not to the point where it was over doing it. Overall, I'd go back & give it another shot.

Made a reservation for 9:15 brunch. Arrived approx 7-8 min early. Hostess apologized because she did not have a table for us so we were asked to wait in the waiting area for about 10-15 min. My husband had the buffet. I chose not to have the buffet because it didn't seem that good of quality for the price. (For example, the breakfast potato option was jo jo style potato wedges.) I ordered the eggs Benedict. They were able to substitute the bacon for avacado and tomato for no extra charge. Our server seemed busy so he was not as attentive as I would have liked but he was very nice when he did come by our table.
