We ate here for breakfast. It is buffet style. They offer the usual standard breakfast fare. We ate made-to-order omelets. They were good. If you are expecting smiles and over the top service here, don't. The omelet chef was disinclined to look at us let alone have a conversation. The server was pleasant though. I would, however, eat here again... More

If you are in the area and want a great Sunday brunch location, this place is it. Plenty of options to select from. This place is in the Gaylord National, so, the service and hospitality is second to none.

My wife and I had breakfast here one morning, as we were staying at the Gaylord Hotel that is right next-door. It is pretty much the only option for breakfast at the Gaylord. It felt like we were sitting outside even though the restaurant is located inside the hotel. We were both disappointed with most of the food on the... More

Usually the buffets at the Gaylord Hotels are excellent. This one seemed to have less variety, the eggs were always cold, no matter what time you ate breakfast. I was taken aback when a coworker was charged 3 dollars for having a cup of coffee with me one morning from the one pot that was left at the table as... More

Buffet was terrible and service was worse. The waitress did not speak good English and was not able to answer questions about the selections when asked.

Sunday brunch. I came here because of a group get together of about 30 people. Great atmosphere, nice weather. Outdoor dining was excellent on a beautiful day. For what I consumed, it was overpriced. They had a variety of food, ham, glazed baked chicken, Alaskan King crabs, fresh salad, fruit, breakfast items; such as waffles, sausages, scrambled eggs, made to... More

We ate the dinner buffet. It had a wide variety of salad options but limited main course ones. In fact, it was one selection of chicken, meat and then 3 varieties of pizza. Dessert had a lots of 'bite size' options.

Staying at the Gaylord we went here for breakfast since it's their only sit-down breakfast option. It's only a buffet, and it's huge. The servers were nice and took care of us quickly. 3 and under are free even though it's not advertised. The hot buffet items weren't very good, scrambled eggs were watery and potatoes dry. Other very good... More

The food here was very good. I wouldn't consider it outstanding but very good and the buffet had a reasonable amount of choices. We had a reservation so no problem there but I noticed they were closed often during the day so be sure to check hours.

Very expensive to eat here, yet the quality of the food is an embarrassment, considering what they charge for it. We tried it once and vowed never to return. If I recall correctly, they charge $17 plus tax and tip for an omelette, but you have very little that you can choose from as far as ingredients, and the portion... More

Sorry you did not enjoy your experience in Pienza ZippyPinhead. We are constantly making upgrades to our buffet and use feedback like yours to make these changes. We have all of your typical omelet ingredients on the buffet, but we will look to see if there is the possibility of adding anything more. I am also sorry you didn't like... More
