The food was very good. The salmon and rice was better than the steak I chose. Portions were moderate. Sweet treats were nice which were provided in addition to wedding cake. The wait staff was exceedingly friendly and accommodating.

Food was delicious, the menu selection was different but mainstream enough for all. Everything was cooked well. The staff was friendly and quick to fulfill requests. Would eat here again if we stayed at the hotel!

Needed a new place to celebrate Thanksgiving this year while our house is being completed. Choice The Glen based on the buffet as our daughter and son-in-law are expecting. Very nice selection she was just finishing the first trimester. Turkey and ham was tasty, many sides to choice from along with fresh veggies and fruit. Dessert selection could have been... More

So my wife and I decided this year we would forego turning our home into a meal production facility for Thanksgiving. In years past we’ve always enjoyed picking the turkey, the vegetables, making the stuffing, and making the deserts from scratch. This year our family has grown and once we weighed the pros and cons of making our traditional Thanksgiving... More

I visited for a week while on a business trip. The breakfast and lunch buffets are excellent and the staff is amazing. It does seem expensive - $15 for breakfast, with kids half price - but it went over well with the group and my family. Of course, thinking of paying that much for a bowl of cereal and a... More

If you have to stay any place for a full week, stay here -- the staff remembers your name, your preferences, and if it is not on the menu, they make any dish for you. Terrific place.

We ate here for breakfast, lunch, and a Sunday champagne brunch, and all of the food was wonderful. The selections were a cut above the typical buffet fare and frequently replenished. The dessert bar was especially yummy. Servers were friendly and kept our beverages refilled.

Again, I think this will improve as their young chef was very eager to please, but there's plenty of room for advancement in the culinary side of the business here at the property.
