NOT WORTH THE MONEY

Ordered Thai crab appetizer- it was a hunk of guacamole with a few shreds of crab meat on top- not sure where the thai came in or the amount of crab for the price. I ordered the Ahi Tuna medium rare- it was awful. Overcooked, hard as a rock, and definately not a fresh entree. The side salad clearly... read more

Four of us ate in the Woodlands Lounge, which is the bar area. I ordered the fish tacos which came with a delicious side fresh side salad. But the tacos were wrapped up like burritos which was odd, and included fish, a little cabbage (no dressing), and some salsa and black olives (which I've never had with fish tacos). I... More

What an Oso Buco! We decided to dine here at the last minute, and we were so glad we did. We had a great romantic meal with great wine, and nice seating. The waiter was very polite and very knowledgeable concerning the menu and wine list. We were not rushed to turn the tables over, so were able to eat... More

The food in the restaurant was excellent. We ordered an appetizer the soup of the day and the special of the day. The service was excellent and the timing of the meal was just right.

Unless you wish to drive off property, Woodlands is your choice for dining while at Eagle Ridge. The service is good, the food is good, it is conveniently located for guests staying at the resort. Saturday evening dinner was delicious. Prime Rib.

Had breakfast here the morning we left. Beautiful view of the lake, good service although we were the only ones in the restaurant at the time. Food was average.

After reading great reviews, we were highly disappointed in the service and food. We ordered from the bar menu, cold sweet potato fries and initially horrible service. Food was otherwise ok but not as expected. Probably will not return anytime soon but we love the area.

A group of us went for dinner on a Wednesday night at the Woodlands Lounge (not the restaurant) and had a nice time in a contemporary rustic atmosphere. There were larger screen televisions around but not so many, loud or large that it was distracting. I ordered a rich and delectable cup of sausage and corn chowder along with a... More
