“Christmas Buffet disappointing.”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

I expected a far better experience for the price paid and having heard it was a special place to dine for Christmas. The room was very large and we were seated as far from the buffet (in another room) as you could be. The ham was excellent but the prime rib, and turkey were just ok. I was expecting a bit of a culinary experience but the sides were very simple green beans, sweet potatoes, stuffing. No different than the buffet at Golden Corral, in fact less choice. The dessert table was really disappointing as many offerings tasted dry like they had been baked days before. The bread pudding didn't even have a sauce or ice cream with it. To top it all off they didn't serve you coffee, you had to get it yourself from the buffet! It was to be a $38.00 buffet but they added gratuity before you ate so it was $50.00 with tip for no service except for clearing away dishes and serving water. I would not recommend it.

“Thanksgiving 2012”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

We had thanksgiving Dinner at this location. In all the years past our special Holiday meals were great. You missed the mark this time. The service was the worst we have seen. Had to ask for coffee and tea after being there 20 min. The buffet the food was less than par which has us stunned due to the many time we have been there. The turkey was not carved it looked like it had been ripped from the Turkey. The wait staff never once asked me if they could help me due to my wife is in a wheel chair. No one ever came by to get the dirty plates off our table or ask us for coffee or tea. Then we get the receipt and we see several charges.... Meal, valet,location charge, tip....all in all the ticket price for two, no drinks and one cup of coffee and tea $130.00... Never again.

“What a way to end a perfect day on the course!”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

It's a "tradition"...grab a quick bite in the a.m. before playing a round of golf on either the Gold or Blue course...and then finish the day of birdies and bogeys with lunch and drink!
