“eat the breakfast and skip the rest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

The Moose Creek, attached to the Holiday Inn, College Park, does a very good buffet breakfast for $11 - wide range of options, hot and cold,and friendly, if occasionally elusive, service: rating 'very good'. Lunch and dinner were very disappointing: a tired veggie wrap with cardboard-like wrapping; and a plate of ribs in sauce which was fatty and almost inedible: rating 'poor'. Hence 'average' overall. Eat the breakfast and skip the rest.

“December 2012 visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I liked being able to get what I wanted and not leave the hotel. Staff are always courteous. Food was hot and fresh.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Ate dinner here with a family of four. Service was slow, and our order got mixed up twice. When the food arrived, we found it inedible (both two dishes and the kids desert). Although we were hungry, we left half our plate uneaten.

“Inconsistent food and service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We recently stayed at the attached Holiday Inn and had very inconsistent experiences. On the first visit to this restaurant both the dinner and buffet breakfast were somewhat above average food and very good service. On our second visit (on a Sunday night) and discovered only a limited bar menu was available. The food was good and the service accurate and polite but on the slow side despite an almost empty restaurant. The following morning, the buffet breakfast looked OK but failed the taste test for a number of the items. Despite an almost empty restaurant, the service was extremely slow particularly when waiting for our server to return to collect the check and credit card. While we love the attached hotel, I doubt we will return to this restaurant.

I sincerely apologize for the inconsistencies in service we have provided to you as a customer. While our breakfast buffet is usually a favorite, we have re-trained all staff on expectations and consistency. We are re-training all staff of service pace and quality of product and hope that you will give us another chance. We are sorry that we let you down
