Overall, the food was just not that good. We ate outside which was totally fine. Warm and cozy and a nice view. I didn’t know they were only serving the buffet until after 2:00p, which was not what I wanted, but that was okay. We ordered Eggs Benedict from the kitchen which weren’t very good. Very tough English muffin and not real Hollandaise. The food on the buffet was just okay. And the price was ridiculous! I don’t think I’ve ever paid almost $100 for brunch for two without a single mimosa or Bloody Mary! The servers were all very helpful and nice, so that’s a good thing!

Hi Dana: I am super sorry our buffet brunch failed to deliver this time, and sadly the quality did not meet quantity with the items you tried and ordered. :( I would love to touch base and turn around the poor taste both you and your guest left with! I will send you a private note with my offer and email address to continue this conversation. -Amy

It did not clearly state on their website that they only were offering the buffet. I do not eat buffet style at all. I would not have driven 40 miles if I had known that. Very disappointed.

We had an amazing experience. Girls night out. It had been a while since we have gone out together so it was much anticipated and well enjoyed. The food was great per usual. We took crema brûlée donuts home. Pretty tasty!

Cons: drinks (coffee/tea) no longer included in buffet, revolving door is a little annoying if you're sitting outside, less buffet options than pre-COVID
Pros: heated tented area if you are seated outside, made-to-order dishes taste fresher, service is great as usual

It was a great experience. Our server even remembered that it was my husband's birthday and brought out a donut with a candle.

Server was not attentive

Tuna was asked to be gluten free, instead no sauce, no flavor, and leaves of a Brussel sprout on top. Poor dish.

New York strip Steak was very dry.

We are disappointed, as we have had many positive experiences with the food.. :(

The brunch was overpriced. And the fact that you couldn’t order off the menu was ridiculous. And $30 per person is way too much

Honestly it was a bit of a disaster… The servers forgot about the appetizer and brought the entrées before the appetizer… Drinks did not come together and we’re slow to arrive… When the entrée was delivered the pasta was not as warm as it should be… They definitely were having an off night… They takeoff the charge for the appetizer which they did not bring timely so I appreciated that but definitely an overrated restaurant…

Quite overpriced ~ the restaurant charged additional 4.5% because of Covid-19 although the price on the menu is not cheap.
