Limited but expensive menu. Seating in hotel lobby. Thought it would be an actual restaurant type atmosphere. Service was excellent.

Was quite expensive for Easter brunch and had only eggs benedict for a breakfast item, rest of buffett was lunch-dinner menu. Buffet wss set up too close to entry door, and seating even for those loke us with reservations was handled strangely wiyh long lines and no clear method or preference for reservation holders. Service staff was great, master chef visited tables as a really nice, friendly touch and he listened to comments.

While the food was ok the service was virtually nonexistent. Stood at the hostess station waiting to be seated for 7 minutes while watching two employees just hang around the bar area talking and laughing. Then waited for another ten minutes for our drinks. We ordered and then some time later had to ask the server if she put our order in because nothing had come out yet. Then our appetizer comes out about 5 minutes later. The food when we eventually got it was just room temperature and the cheese that was once melted was once again a nice solid piece. Not at all likely to return here.

Have been coming here for several years on a monthly basis, since it was called Arthur's (my mother, who is 93, likes to sit at a table rather than a booth). During this time we have witnessed its steady decline, despite several management changes and renovations. Last Sunday was the worst. We had reservations, but they weren't worth a darn, as we still had to wait for a table. The person at the omelet station was an abysmal cook who served an undercooked lump of food swimming in RAW egg product. Soup was Velveeta cheese with beer dumped in it. Green beans were completely cold, despite being kept in a "hot" tray, not only unappetizing, but a potential health hazard.
The only bright spots at this place are George and Sally, the great servers who have hung on through thick and thin. If it were up to me, I would NEVER go back, but, alas, my mother likes the place.

Waited for over 10 minutes to be seated. After that time, went to inquire about where to give Open Table reservation to, only to find there was no one to take the reservation.

Regardless, we decided to look at the menu, only to find that a number of the selections listed on the Open Table menu for this establishment, were nowhere to be found on either the lunch and/or dinner menu.

Very disappointing! No one there seemed to care much about our patronage, so we left.

Just awful. This "restaurant" is nothing more than a few tables in a hotel lobby. Nothing like the pictures, and certainly no food was served. I made reservations here for a quick dinner with my company's Vice-President based off of the "reviews" and was humiliated. I can't help but wonder who fabricated some of these reviews, but this place needs to be investigated by OpenTable. Never again.

Not what we expected for Christmas Eve dinner. No decorations. Waiters in jeans. No tablecloths. It was the breakfast room for the guests. No music. Hardly anyone there. The food was quite good however. But this is not for a special occasion . We won't be back.

We were an elderly couple alone on Christmas Eve and between meeting the chef and having frequent conversations with our waiter, we almost felt like we were with family. Our table for two looked out on the patio/pool area and the atmosphere was delightful.

It was not mentioned in Opentable that the restaurant was in a Hilton or that the only menu they serve on Sunday am is $30 brunch. We got there at 2:00 and evidently brunch is over at 3:00 but they were very nice and did not rush us. The selection was very good.
Sally our server was fabulous!
She kept the Mimosa's flowing.
The hotel seemed very nice and quiet even though it is right off I-75.
We are planning to go back and stay for a weekend. Very impressed.

It is not obvious from reading the overview that this is a hotel restaurant. I only say that because my expectations immediately changed once I realized this. However the service was excellent and the food was good. The price value point was better than expected for a hotel but my husband did say the ribs were average at best. Honestly the food was average not bad not great.

We had a 6:15 reservation and our entrees were served at 7:45! I should also state that we were the only table in the restaurant for the first 30 minutes. Server was polite, but definitely inexperienced in how to manage the situation. I asked to speak to the manager twice. First, I asked the bartender to get the manager, since the server was no where to be found. Then, I asked the server when the food did arrive. Manager never came for another 40 minutes. Finally, after waiting for 10 minutes after asking for the check, I told my husband we were leaving and going to leave on the table what I thought the meal was worth. Manager did finally come at this point with our check. I explained that we were only going to pay for a the check at a considerable discount, which she politely obliged. Server was nice but inexperienced. Food was good except my sons' Med-rare to medium steak was raw! Still doesn't explain the hour and half wait for food.

The staff handled this well. No one could explain the wait, since for a good 30 minutes there was no one else. It was an unfortunate circumstance. I would not go back.

Was there for Valentine's Day. Moved reservation for 8:30 - was there on time.
Restaurant was half-empty; five tables were unbussed - and remained so for about 20 minutes.
After about 10 minutes, I went and asked the hostess if she might find us a server - as four servers had looked at us, walked past us, yet never acknowledged us.
Finally - after another 5 minutes -Cindy approached us and took drink orders.
That took another nearly 10 minutes...beer arrived immediately, but the scotch took a while (?).
When she went to take dinner order, we ordered surf and turf ("Out of Surf and Turf") - had to beg for my date to only have a steak (w/out the lobster; seemed like that was a terrible request).
I might note that the prix fixe meal offered that evening was not what was on the website, nor was there any indication until we asked that we could not order off of the regular menu that eve. Also, Cindy seem ruffled by us not wanting to place the dessert order right away.
The lobster bisque was terrific; the french onion soup was very heavy on the salt (too much beef base). Salads and meals were good. We ordered a red velvet Cheesecake to split (that, too seemed like an usual request?); it was frozen.
Asked for coffee; never received.

All in all, it was a terrible disappointment - especially at $60 per head.

We had a reservation at 7:45 but they were over booked. After sitting in the bar area for 20 minutes, the hostess walked over and asked if we were waiting on them to seat is. We ended up having to wait 30 minutes to be seated. The server was nice and he was the only reason why we stayed. The food was disgusting, meaning the lobster was over cooked and tasted terrible, and the steak and potatoes tasted freezer burnt. It took over 2 hours for us to be served a pre-picked valentine's menu. Unfortunately we weren't the only people who had this experience. The table next to us were completely neglected and the staff had no clue who ordered what, not to mention they were waiting longer than us to be seated. I believe they finally got their salads after we had paid. Did I mention they charged us $170 for 3 people? Ridiculous.

Went here for brunch on my birthday. We had a 1:30 reservation and were immediately seated. Our waitress took our beverage order and directed us to the buffet. There were several stations:salads, shrimp and salmon , carving, hot food, waffle and dessert. The salads were fresh and enjoyable. The shrimp were large and tasty as was the smoked salmon. Overall the hot foods were just ok. Most were barely warm and the rice was hard; however, the jambalaya was very good. Waffles were make your own. The carving station had a cook making omletts but there was NO MEAT TO CARVE! We were told they ran out. How do you run out of meat with at least 1 1/2 hours before the close of the brunch. This was not a good thing. There was over cooked bacon and sausage that was not eatable. The desserts were good . The triple chocolate mousse cake (birthday gift from the restaurant) was excellent. Mimosas were free flowing. We were given a discount after complaining about the lack of meat. I would not go here again. There were too many things that were not right.

Having enjoyed their Sunday Champagne Brunch for many years, we found that the changes that have been made to the brunch have brought it up to another level. What was a good brunch has morphed to become an excellent brunch. Previously, the service (and champagne) were the brunch's strength and now the food has joined them as an equal strength.
From the pealed shrimp to the salad bar to the hot line entrees and sides, we did not encounter a substandard bite on our last trip. They have also upgraded their attention to restocking the line, especially for the incredible dessert station.
After this last visit, I have a feeling that we'll be going to Arthur's Bistro for Sunday brunch more often than the previous every other month or so. (Hey, cut us some slack - we don't live in that county and it's an hour's drive each way!)

This meal was quite disappointing. The calamari were like warm and soggy; the crab dip was crab less; the crab cakes were huge and filled with everything that didn't taste like crab; the grouper was dry and overdone; I guess the salmon was ok-- didn't hear complaints; the star of the evening was the Fish&Chips. Got rave revues. Expected a little more from the man dining room at a Hilton.

We were there early - 4:30 p.m. for dinner. Surprised to see how close the "restaurant" is to the bar area. Moderate activity as there was a "boxing event" to be held later that night. Only one other table being served and the waitress didn't know what to do with herself so she chatted endlessly each time she came to the table.. which was too often. As for the food, the Calamari Appetizer was some of the best we've ever had. Cooked perfectly and the sauce was heavenly. Sadly, everything went downhill from there. I ordered the Spinach salad. The dressing was bitter, some of the fruit in the salad was unripe and bitter and in the end I left a big pile of just spinach. My date got the Grouper. A small piece of fish arrived on a huge mound of garlic mashed potatoes. The fish was cooked okay, had a nice sauce but the proportion of fish to potatoes was silly. We did not order dessert and have no plans to go back.

We have attended the Sunday Champagne Brunch many times since finding it several years ago. At the beginning we considered it a nice little brunch with its hits and misses. The service has always been fantastic but the food wasn't always 'up to snuff.' However, lately the the menu and execution have excelled and our latest visit was the best ever with all dishes we ate both tasty and at the appropriate temperature from the serving line. This buffet shows the positive efforts of the staff and management to make this a Class A Champagne Brunch.

We had a work meeting at Arthur's during the week. All of our food was delicious , timely and prepared well with a nice presentation. Our waitress was friendly but overall not very attentive and the restaurant did not appear to be busy that evening. We got up to leave
And realized she hadn't given us the check. (I think we could have walked out without anyone noticing). We looked around to get any employee's attention, finally did , and got our check! I think you know what I could say next, but honesty is the best policy.

I read the other reviews and this sounded pretty special but the food and ambiance seemed similar to most hotel restaurants. We went for the Sunday brunch which had the typical selections. I was disappointed in the "make your own breakfast included" waffles but my favorite the salmon, was plentiful. If you are a senior, there is a $2.00 discount from the regular price.
