Our stay at Oglebay included the breakfast buffet which is very good and has just about anything you could want. Ask for a table by the window to enjoy the view while dining.

Very nice buffet with great service and lots of choices. Turkey with all the fixings along with prime rib, ham and salmon. Many desserts to choose from as well. We were seated over the lake with a great view. I would recommend.

We ate at Ihlenfeld twice while we were at Oglebay Park recently with our adult children and grandchildren. The breakfast buffet was included with our room charge. The selections at both the dinner and breakfast buffet are fresh, excellent and delicious. There is even a shorter, easy to serve oneself table of food that appeals to children that is such... More

Oglebay's new chef is fabulous! I had a filet and my husband ordered scallops. Both were excellent- possibly the best steak I've had! The salads dressed in the Roasted Italian dressing were delicious. Flourless chocolate cake was worth ever calorie! Know you will enjoy so give it a try!

I have never written a tripadvisor review before, but my experience was so bad--and the management so unbelievably non-responsive to our complaints--that I have to let others know. We (a party of 5) arrived without reservations on a Monday evening for dinner. We were told it would be a 15 minute wait. Almost an HOUR later we were finally seated,... More

we had a reservation and hoped for nice evening as we entertained family from out of town. They seated us in the first section of the dark, empty buffet area with huge post blocking our view. No one else was seated there, We noticed there was an entire row in next area down that was better lit and with no... More

Our first visit and we did the B & B package and we were extremely pleased. The breakfast buffet each morning had an extensive variety of choices. Make a tour of each table before you start, my husband went for the omelet and I went for a tablespoon of the offerings. Save room for a cinnamon roll and the warm... More

We had reservations for 6:30 on a Saturday for 6 people and were seated in a poor location that did not have a view of anything but the empty buffet table. We asked to be moved and was accommodated. The restaurant was not crowded at all that night. The grill room seemed to have several in it, however I expected... More
