“Average food, average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had lunch at the restaurants: three of us had soup, two had salads. The caesar salad was considerably overdressed, swimming in it. My onion soup was so salty I couldn't eat it. My mother in law had a baked potato soup and she said it was so thick it was like "wallpaper paste." It had just cooked too long. My wife asked for milk with her hot tea and it came after she had finished it. I asked for a beer twice before it came. The waitress was very pleasant, just not very efficient. Our brief visit doesn't speak very well for the quality of food or service.

“Good food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Always wary of on-site restaurants at resorts, we have never had a bad meal at Fareways. The staff is friendly and efficient, the choices varied and tastefully prepared. Even the desserts range from standard to unusual, as in pumpkin spice gelato. They are also willing and able to meet specific requests re food preparation. I would like to see more vegetarian options. At first we thought it would be expensive, but we did get good value - generous portions, timely service, relaxed setting in that no one rushed us despite the line.

“Excellent food at reasonable prices.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Ate there for dinner last evening. I ordered from the early bird menu--crab-stuffed tilapia with rice pilaf, along with tomato shrimp bisque and roasted veggies at $12.95. It was excellent. My husband had drunken salmon topped with mandarin oranges, accompanied by the rice pilaf, and a crisp tossed salad. He said it some of the best salmon he has had, and he orders salmon often. Our waiter, Dave did a fine job. This restaurant is clean and has a relaxing and attractive decor.

“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

The food was expensive and wasn't very appetizing. The ambiance was nice, but their menu need better options and better pricing.
