The reviews and photos lead us to expect more. My understanding is that they used to be in the old library building, which would have been a much nicer atmosphere. They are now in the lobby of the Quality Inn. The cloud of chlorine that...greets you upon arrival and the dirty bathrooms on the lower corridor heading to the pool set a low bar. The service was polite but slow. For a "casual fine dinning" establishment I would have expected much more. Two glasses of wine, one app, and two of the lower cost entries (chicken and pasta) cost $84+tip. The Alfredo was below average at best. The sauce was watery, the noodles over done, and the chicken was one the overdone and tough side. The Chicken Supreme was a bit better, but the menu neglected to mention that it was breaded. Desert was cancelled after ordering it and then waiting 15 min without anyone showing up. About the quality one might expect from a restaurant in Quality Inn lobby, but nowhere near the casual fine dinning establishment the advertise for an evening out.More

I attended a small wedding dinner here in the private room. The atmosphere was warm and classy, the service was quite good and the food was phenomenal! They served a lovely salad, seasonal soup, main course of steak, potatoes and veggies plus a dessert. Everything...was flavorful, unique and just the right portitions.More

Nice place to sit down for a fine meal. We had coconut shrimp and mushroom soup for appetizer and they were so yummy. Steaks and duck breast were also delicious. We left with full stomach.

The service was very good but we were disappointed with the food which was overcooked and not well seasoned.

Nothin was good about this restaurant. Our first impression was a dark place that smells wet carpet and chlorine from the pool. It took an hour to get the food and the food was simply awful. I did not eat anything and at least, I...was not charged for my meal. I would never go back there!More

We usually eat in the restaurant but as we stayed at a different hotel this time we got take out for the first time and I have to say it was every bit as good as eating in. Went to the online menu-called in our...order and it was ready for pick up in 30 minutes. Well packaged. Meal was hot. Utensils not provided.More

We were over from the U.K. visiting friends in the area who chose this restaurant for a Saturday night meal. When we were arrived, I was a little unimpressed with the bar area which is opposite the hotel reception. The hotel decor is very dated...and the lobby/bar area had a very strong smell of chlorine from the hotel pool. The restaurant itself has the same dark decor as the lobby and I was unsure about what to expect but our server was very professional and when she read out the specials I thought they sounded amazing and started to relax a little. We chose the chicken alfredo, bbq ribs, duck and boeuf bourignon, all of which arrived hot and at the same time. I have to say that my chicken alfredo was the best I have ever had and everyone else thoroughly enjoyed their meals too. The restaurant was fairly quiet for a Saturday night but our server was very attentive and returned to pour our wine regularly. I think that with a coat of light paint and some positive advertising, this restaurant would establish independence from the dated hotel and shine. We also found it to be excellent value for money. I don’t know when we’ll get the chance to return to the area but I would make it a priority to come back to this restaurant.More

We were here on a bus trip. We did not see the menu because we had pre-ordered. The staff were a bit harried as we were on a fairly tight schedule. I think everyone enjoyed their lunch and I would recommend this place.
