We had our family reunion there this past weekend 8/4/12. We had made reservation weeks in advance with an aproximate number that would be attending. We gave the final head count on Friday (Just a few more than told at the time of booking) . My expectations were high as several members of our family had eaten there at lunch a few years prior and the food, service and ambiance were awesome and I wanted to share this experience with my family. We arrived a nice room was provided but that is when things started going wrong, we were served salads, drinks and rolls then we waited and waited and waited for our meal. The first table was served it was over an hour before the last table was served (which were the children). We later learned they ran out of food go figure you have a party of 28 booked you should have food to feed them and it was an all you can eat family style meal. Drinks were not refilled, my daughter and her friend were not given bowls of food they let them dip some on their plate and then took the bowls back. Terrible service, the food was good when we arrived we were told we were suppose to have fried chicken, ham and meat loaf no meat loaf was ever served, the chicken was chicken fingers type (I think they were baked not my ideal of fried chicken) the ham was very thin slices. The head table where I was seated I believe we got all we wanted to eat but the other table of adults left hungry. There were no apology for the long wait, the elder server was very rude, the younger girl was nice for a while then her mood went down hill. I was unaware of some of the events until we returned to the hotel and everyone was talking. They charged us 20% tip on everyones ticket, tips are for good service which we did not get! I know for large grougs the tip is added which is fine but provide the service you are charging for. If extra people came in without resevations they should have been turned away or maybe let them order off the lunch menu or heck let us order off the lunch menu don't make us set there while you cook our meal (Remember this is family style not each person having a different order) because there was not enough food prepared to for a large party that did have reservations. Beware some of our party paid over $70.00 and left hungry. I'm the party planner and I'm embarrassed that this happened at our family reunion, we came from Western & Eastern KY, Ohio, and Alabama
