“Breakfast Great, but Terrible Dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

This is the only restaurant in the Evergreen Hotel. It is buffet only and no childrens menu. We arrived on a Friday evening and thought the Friday night seafood buffet might be good. It was ok, but not worth $30 per person. My children, ages 4 and 6, did not eat hardly anything. They didn't even like the desserts and they usually love sweets. The salad bar was the highlight of the buffet. The server did not check on us and my husband finally found the water pitcher to refill out glasses. Terrible service! We left the resort to eat Saturday night.

The breakfast was different. The children received small finger puppets and coloring sheets. Our server was fantastic. She was friendly and checke on us often. The buffet was nice and had something for everyone. Hot food like bacon, eggs, oatmeal, etc. Cold food like cereral and fruit as well as breads, muffins, bagels.

Get the breakfast, but avoid the dinner!

“Expensive and not fresh Mother's Day meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

Have been here twice and both times the food has been average. The more recent visit was for Mother's Day brunch and while I enjoyed the ambiance, I thought most of the food I tried did not taste fresh. The only thing I really enjoyed was the omelet, and that was made fresh at the omelet station. I cannot remember what type of fish was served, but it tasted fishy and rubbery. Not good. I understand that buffets can be touch and go, but we arrived at the beginning of the buffet and the food had not been sitting out that long (or so it seemed). The Mother's Day buffet costs twice as much as the regular lunch buffet (they call it "holiday" pricing), so it of course is way overpriced. $35 for adults and $17 for children. Perhaps if the food was made more palatable, we would not have cared as much about the pricing. It would also have been nice if they offered some kind of Mother's Day cocktail with the meal, like a mimosa, but they did not.

We were almost charged full price for our 12 year old, as our server stated that the children's price was for ages 5-11 years old. When we arrived, I noticed the sign for the buffet stated the child's price was for ages 5-12. I mentioned this to the server, and she stated that she was told differently. I politely offered to show her the sign and she said that she would speak to her manager about it. Fortunately, in the end we were charged the child's price for our 12 year old (as we should have been).

Overall, we were not really impressed with their "holiday" meal and after dining at this restaurant a total of two times, we will probably not be returning for a third.

“Food so-so, way overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

A rather small and uninspired dinner buffet -- not awful but certainly not great or worth the $26 cost. The wine (by glass) prices were ridiculously inflated and the server seemed reluctant to produce the wine list, no doubt being ashamed of the prices.
