    This is a great place to schedule an event. You can reserve the room with the pool tables, which they will cover with eating surfaces and cloth table cloths. Perfect for meetings.

    We love the iceberg wedge and the entree meals. We also love the Cameron Park special nights.

    Got the egg and bacon sandwich with hash browns. The hash browns were cold and stale tasting. We WERE going to stay for mimosas but we decided this place wasn't worth our time.

    The restrooms in the pool table room are better and usually free. Also since they are one-holers, consider them unisex!
