The breakfast offering at Season's is so sumptuous... something for everyone... fruit, cereals, juices, yogurt, eggs/omelettes, waffles, french toast, bacon sausage, toast, biscuits (& sausage gravy). Breakfast is complimentary with most of the accommodation selections. It is quite reasonably priced (about $10) for anyone choosing to eat there even if not included in a room rate package. The breakfast is well worth having either way.
We also had dinner at Season's on Thanksgiving Day... reservations for 4:45PM, party of four. We were actually seated nearer to 5:30PM. Overall the variety of items offered at the different serving stations was excellent... many were gourmet dishes. HOWEVER, I feel that the restaurant overbooked for the capacity and turnover rate of the Thanksgiving Day crowd which led to several shortcomings... starting with the 45 minute wait for a table.
Other shortcomings (of varying degrees of importance): there was cranberry sauce available but required asking the waitress for it (not on the buffet), the dark meat turkey was smoked and served chilled (not hot, not roasted), some dishes were more popular than others resulting in the lesser-demanded dishes becoming "cool/warm served" (for some of the diners) before the trays would be refilled with hot food, and the desserts were self-serve & looked "picked over & messy" because of the sheer volume of children and adults serving themselves.
If I were to suggest improvements, I'd say that there was a NEED for more servers attending the serving stations so smaller amounts of HOT food could be offered ALL THE TIME & any "spills" from careless self-serving could have been quickly cleared from the serving area. The desserts should have been cut & plated as individual servings (instead of cut whole pies being mauled by the crowd) --or-- there should have been a server there to give each guest the dessert item(s) desired in the size desired. There is nothing MORE of a TURN OFF than a slice cheesecake or pie mangled by a guest who ONLY WANTS A TASTE!
I have had better HOLIDAY DINING experiences (& presentation) at resort restaurants that had "attended serving stations" for all of the selections being offered, not just the meat carving stations. OVERALL, however, our party enjoyed the meal and the fellowship that we had sharing the meal in a very casually elegant restaurant! Compared to Abingdon or Summerville, the Thanksgiving Day meal was a little pricey.
