“terrible food, terrible service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

we were at Knotts Resort for a National Dance competition. Restaurant clearly could not handle the volume. Long waits (hours), errors on bills, wrong orders brought out, food quality low. I cannot think of a single positive thing to say about this place.

“Amber Waves Breakfast Buffett”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

The food at the breakfast buffet was excellent and well worth it. Two different types of eggs, hash browns, sausage, bacon, fresh fruit, cereal, coffee and juice. We were in heaven!

“You wont see many dinning here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Breakfast buffet was over priced and low quality. For the price they should have eggs to order, not just scrambled. Beacon should not be baked, it sticks together and is just wrong! The cook was doing nothing while we were there, FRY BEACON AND COOK EGGS TO ORDER!
It will make a turd and you'll remember how it cost soooo much.

“Thanks For The Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

The food was great, but the service was even better. With six grandkids the waitress was so helpful. We all enjoyed everything about our stay at Knott's Hotel
