Had dinner at the Carvery on 4/16 -1st time since Terrace was retrofitted to include buffet. Price was $19.99.
Layout was around perimeter with 4 sites; salad/entrée, hot vegies/carbs & soups, hot meats with "carver" and deserts. Layout was fine and sites were clean and stocked. Plates were square shaped immediately under start areas. To me, this change in layout and tables was a nice improvement.
Salad/appetizers area selection reminded me of international type selections not normally seen in a buffet-very good. I would guess there were about 20 different items. Ding for having 2 baskets of baguettes which were filled but sign-display only-and 1 hard roll was hard-guess leftover from lunch.
Hot foods/carbs/starch 4 types-selection ok for me
Soup cup was fancy shape like a dory boat and easily spilled my soup while I filled the cup.
Hot "carvery" selection as I re-call included prime rib, pork filet, salmon , 4 small "Polish" sausages and chicken. I only had med rare prime rib-which were sliced thin (normal) and it was fine.
Deserts were a small selection. There was a mini doughnut maker; 2 types of cobbler and puddings selections in a parfait glass.
Service was very good
Compared to Wheeling-
Carvery -Much cleaner looking and nice layout and a non-herd mentality for getting food.
Understand when we were eating around 6pm it was about 1/2 full.
Wheeling has a larger selection of deserts as the only positive for comparison.
Don't know about Friday sea food selections for Carvery.
Remaining Menu Items
Most of the menu of the "Terrace" remains and I think price was adjusted up about a 1 dollar for many items.
As the Terrace Restaurant, we would get the queen cut prime rib with soup or salad and starch (fries at times were lousy) for 13.95. Deserts selections including pies are no more.
Obviously the management determined a change was necessary as "Terrace Restaurant" and to my liking as a good move!
Ding-lack of selection for "no sugar" type foods but this isn't the only place for that issue.
I know no one at the Meadows and this is my opinion.
