The food had absolutely no seasoning. The salad bar had little to no salad and what was there was not edible. Prime rib was overcooked, not cooked as ordered. Bartender kept coming in the dining room and was very loud.

One dinner, the clams and pasta was good, but the chicken and biscuits was not good. The mashed potato was terrible, biscuits not good and the chicken was bland. The salat bar was good and the service was excellent
