In years past, Packers has been one of my favorite places to drink, eat, and watch the sunset. The last year the resort was open the quality wasn't as good as it had been, but we returned for the ambience. We were disappointed but not enough to keep us away.
The new color scheme is a little jarring...the outside is bright yellow and gold, reminds me of a La Quinta Inn. Hopefully they will replace the overhang they removed at the front door. There is no protection from the weather at the entry..
This last visit was a big letdown! The sunset is still there, but the new menu was a little confusing and lackluster. Keep it simple!!! There were several things on the menu that we had to google...didn't know what they were. The crab and avocado sandwich I ordered arrived on a croissant (didn't mention that on the menu) without any avocado! There were way too many red and green peppers in the crab, ruined the delicate flavor. The mushroom fries were a disappointment, soggy and limp. The other person with me ordered the hamburger, it was ordered medium rare, it arrived completely overcooked and dried out. The bun was very nice.
We also ordered from the kids' menu. The size of the portion was enough for an adult, the salmon was raw in the middle, made us think it was a frozen filet, was not that great.
We asked about the new chef, were told there wasn't one, that a consulting chef had made the menu and there were only line cooks in the kitchen...too bad. I'm going to wait a while before I return and hope there is a different menu and a dedicated head chef! I think they should have waited longer to reopen, the place still looks run down, the staff were steam cleaning the carpets in the long hallway that you have to walk down to get to the restaurant.. Do that in the late evening hours, not during the dinner hours. It was tacky! Thought they would replace the carpeting! Maybe that's on the schedule of things to do. Looking forward to the future, hope it comes together!
