For main meals there are a number of options available with main dining rooms offering traditional fixed dining times as well as the more flexible anytime option. There are also a number of speciality restaurants with Sabatini’s serving the finest Italian fare and chefs at The Crown Grill prepare seafood and steak to perfection.
