The food is a welcome addition to the Atlantis Resort but I can't get past $22 for Macaroni and Cheese. This place would get a very high rating but it is overpriced even for ATLANTIS

No question - restaurants at Atlantis are pricey! Virgil's yummy ribs and family-style dishes were the both reasonably priced and delicious!

The food was good but did not match the price. We ate there twice because there weren't any dinner options open one evening. The food tasted good but service was not the greatest. The deserts were very good.

Have the brisket and don't miss out on the hushpuppies. The shrimp appetizer is delicious too. Catch a game on one of three TVs at the bar while you're there.

This was a real disappointment. The ribs were tough and the sides were average. Not a good meal for the price that they charge. The staff was not attentive. Skip this one

After we ordered our meal the waiter was never to be seen again until I hunted him down to get the bill so we could leave. Tip is automatically added to bill. This explains his lack of service and care of unhappy paying patrons. Our bill was 200$ +. But that was actually expected. We did not expect to be... More
