It was a lovely warm, slightly breezy day so we decided to brunch on the veranda. Lots of people and about an equal number waiting at the first tee to play. We found a table for two with a nice view of the first tee and the well-manicured eighth fairway.
We started with a Mimosa, a glass of orange juice, and coffee. Coffee was lukewarm, Mimosa was generous but flat, and the orange juice was generous but not fresh squeezed. The brunch menu looked exciting with an Omelet Bar, Salad Bar, Pastry and Fruit Bar (Fresh Fruit Platter, Cheese Blintzes, Waffles, Cinnamon French toast, Assorted Pastries, Cinnamon Rolls, Cheesecakes, Coffee Cake, English Trifle, Fresh Fruit Cobblers), and a buffet of Certified Angus Prime Rib, Club Benedict, Kelly’s Bacon, Scrambled Eggs, Home Fries, Sausage links, Chicken Fried Steak with Biscuits and Country Gravy, Sweet & Spicy Meatballs, Smoked Salmon Platter with mini bagels, Baked Macaroni & Cheese, Vegetarian Egg Rolls, Chicken Burritos, Mini Corn Dogs, Savory Bread Pudding, and Quiche. All beverages are included. The price is $28, $23 for seniors 65 or older, children 12 and under $18, and children under 3 are gratis.
However, upon actually tasting the food, we were disappointed with pretty much all the fare although the Kelley's bacon was thick and crispy but overly sweet, salmon is virtually unruinable, the sausage links were fine, and the prime rib was probably better than at Denny's (if it served prime rib).
We polished off with another lukewarm coffee.
By the end of the meal we kind of wished the starter in the clubhouse was in charge of the restaurant: foursomes were going off in regular fashion while our service on the veranda was haphazard although cordial. Even if we were not moving to Sacramento next week, there would certainly be no more visits for us for brunch despite the fact one of us is a Hunter Ranch Players Club member.
