Question about Commander's Palace Brunch

About how long does it take to eat Sunday brunch at Commander's Palace? We have 10:30 brunch reservations on 5/9 and a 1:45 tour scheduled that day. I allowed 2:15 for brunch, 30 minutes to get back to the hotel, and 15 or so minutes to change into bike tour appropriate clothes and get to the site, which is reasonably close to our hotel. That gives us 15 minutes of wiggle room. Is this feasible or am I delusional? Should I try and bump our reservation to 10?

Thanks everyone! I've been to the wonderful brunch before, but time wasn't really an issue, so I didn't pay much attention.

  1. Unless you plan on lingering over cocktails, 2:15 is more than adequate. You can probably be in and out in 1:30.

    1. You've got plenty of time unless you want to linger, as I always do. When I anm on a shcedule I tell teh waiter what's up with a modest injunction to keep it paced nicely so as not to resemble a drive-in window.

        Thanks to you both! We do tend to linger, but I will let the waiter know we have about two hours at the beginning of the meal. Thanks for the feedback!
