“Is this really edible?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

The facility was great fresh and clean and I was feeling like this was going to be a decent meal. They offered free dinner to children under 5 so I ordered chicken strips for her and the $27 buffet for myself. When my daughters chicken strips came out they were really dark like they were deepfried several times. Even the breading felt burned and hard. I asked the server to send them back for some better prepared ones and she came back 10 minutes later with the same plate and said the cook said they are prepared correct and that the come from the supplier this way with the dark color, the inside should be edible and soft. What the heck? That was a total shock to me. I requested something else for my daughter and they brought her a really good grilled cheese sandwich. The buffet was okay, but nothing to brag about.

Breakfast buffet was a total disaster. There were tons of people that particular morning an she wait staff was stretched thin to say the least. People were not being attended to for long periods of time. I decided to get a bowl of cereal. While standing in line wait staff replenished the bowls from the back since they were out. People in line were grabbing bowl after bowl and 3/4 of the stack had food on them and were extremely dirty. It looked like they took them from the dirty pile and just rinsed them off quickly and rushed them out the door for us. They obviously were not cleaned or sterilized properly.

“Good Food, Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

All the food ordered was enjoyed. The Shrimp and Grits was fabulous, as was the Azteca Soup. There is a good selection to please a diverse group. The restaurant was really slow when we were there, but service was great.

“Limited menu, subpar food, high prices”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

The food was just so-so, making the high prices that much more outrageous. I would have been fine paying "resort" fees if the food actually tasted great.

Horrible food, even worse service. Denny's would have been better.
