Just got back from a day trip to the Seminole Inn, after reading a strongly positive review of the restaurant and the hotel in the Miami Herald. What a disappointment! The review emphasized the excellent southern cooking; focussing on the fried green tomato sandwiches, the fried chicken, the excellent deserts, etc. We arrived at 1:00 P.M. on a Tuesday afternoon after a 1.5 hour drive from our home in Miami. Upon our arrival we were told that they were out of fried green tomatoes, that their fried chicken was only served on Friday's and Sundays, etc. We persevered, thinking that what was left of their $6.95 "all you can eat" buffet would be decent. We were wrong, The baked chicken was mediocre. Everything else was worse. I am a southerner. Even a yankee wouldn't eat their three remaining biscuits -- all cold and hard as rocks. The two end pieces of cornbread were also stone cold. The mashed potatoes were mealy, the peas inedible, etc. A request for butter went seemingly unanswered -- after I second request I was told it had been added to the buffet table and I could get it myself. No jam or honey was offered and none were in sight. At this point no one else was in the restaurant but me and my daughter. When we finished our meals, ten minutes later, the two $6.95 orders came out to $18 and change. Apparently tea (and desert, which we didn't bother ordering, given our other culinary experiences) are extra. So here is may conclusion: the Sunday brunch might be decent, dinners might be decent, the hotel might be decent, but don't ever drive out for the weekday brunch. You'll get a better, cheaper, truer Southern meal at McDonald's!!!
