What Buffet?

On the Best Western website, we were promised what amounted to a succulent buffet- hello, false advertising!- breakfast, but were given slips of paper that amounted to tickets that represented what we could order when we checked in. Talk about a disappointment! I would have KILLED for a piece of... read more

I spent $6.99 on a Greek salad all I received was a container full of vinegar. Since the girl was closing the door as I was leaving, I couldn't even go back to ask for more lettuce. I'm not even sure if it would of made a difference or I would trust the quality. The wings were acceptable and the... More

This restaurant is located inside the Best Western. It took forever for us to be seated..after we were seated we decided to eat the buffet. Disgusting! Boxed scalloped potatoes, nasty stuffed peppers, terrible mac n cheese...just awful! Also got bit by a bug and it still hasn't healed.

This restaurant is located in the hotel. We had dinner here and the place was empty. We were informed there is a bar also attached... which I suppose is why the service was slow. You can get an entree for under 10.00 dollars here.... chicken dish, rib-eye, etc... but the overall selection is poor. The menu mostly had stuff that... More

There are not many restaurants in Covington but this one has a fairly decent Friday night buffet. The seafood is ok and could be really good if the cook did not overcook it.

Waitress not friendly and didn't readily offer low-fat and healthy food choices. No fresh fruit, no low fat milk. Bacon old.

Ate dinner here on Thursday evening. Breakfast coupon can be applied as $7 discount on dinner in lieu of free breakfast. Waitress was very friendly and provided good service. I had chicken livers and they were fantastic. Just like home cooking. Husband's ribeye was a little dry, but steak sauce took care of it. Using coupons we paid less then... More

Small but good breakfast buffet on weekend; If you leave hungry its your own fault; Breadfast is often included in room stay at this family run Best Western.

Poor service (was informed the person attempting to wait on us, also had to tend bar and help cook)... took forever to get a drink and food.. Can't blame the waiter, the owner obvious isn't concerned about customer service... only saving dollars on hiring help. Poor over all...
