“Christmas buffet- poor!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We had looked forward to their buffet/brunch after reading about it as we are new to the area. We could not get a reservation for Thanksgiving in October but I was able to make one for Christmas. We thought this must be great as it was booked so far ahead.
When I called, I was told it had the normal brunch items but the lunch buffet. Wrong- brunch items are eliminated with the exception of omelets (no breakfast items at all to go with them).
The selection was POOR! If you have a seafood allergy or don't like seafood, there are very few items to chose from.
The hot buffet consisted of mashed potatoes, a chicken dish, a beef dish, salon, and roasted vegetables. There was a carving station offering very rare prime rib and lamb. There were a few salads but except for one salad, all had seafood. There is shrimp with cocktail sauce as well as some platters of fruit.
Unless other buffets at hotels, there was no soup, salad bar or salads with toppings, pasta, stir fries- nothing. No selection of any breads- just some rolls. The mashed potatoes were tasteless. The desserts looked nice but with the one delicious lemon cake,
The price was $32.95 and this is what most hotels charge but with ten times the selections. If you have a child with you, there is no child section either.
This was a huge disappointment for us as we had pictures a special buffet. The hotel is lovely but I would not go there for a meal again.

“Don't eat here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The food selection is limited and then when you do order something you may not want, it has no flavor

Breakfast was typical hotel fare. Shrimp & grits was good and different, but pancakes were rather small portion.
