My fiance and I were staying at the Sleep Inn that is connected to 29 Pines. We were sick of driving for the day and couldn't find any pizza place that would deliver to us, as the hotel and restaurant are rather isolated from the rest of Eau Claire...so out of desperation, we called in an order for pick up so we could eat in our hotel room.
I had the chicken pesto pasta with salad. My fiance went to pick up the food and had to make the salad himself. Some of the lettuce was black with rot and there were no carrots. The chicken was dry and had a burnt taste. The pasta and pesto sauce were okay.
My fiance had the chicken parmesan pasta with cream of mushroom soup. He had to get his own soup from the salad bar and had a 2nd choice of New England clam chowder. He said that the soups were not labeled so he had to "guess". If I had gotten the soup, this would have been a serious problem as I am very allergic to shellfish. Not labeling the soups is inexcusable. He said his dinner was "eh, decent" and he found something unidentifiable in his soup.
Based on the cost of the food, it should have been a lot better with much better quality. Had we not wanted to get back into the car and drive into Eau Claire, we never would have chosen to eat this.
