Decided to go to Wild Dunes resort for new years eve. At security checkpoint where we entered, the guard asked "what can I do for you?". We told him that we were going to the restaurant and he gave us a slip of paper. Then I had to ask directions.
Opinion: whats the point of the guard stop if its that easy to get in, personally he shouldn't assume I know where to go.
When we got to main building, we had no idea where to park. We pulled up to valet, but valet was nowhere to be seen (no signs). Wife went inside to get someone and a manager came out and informed, valet was free and that we could leave car.
Went to restaurant and our table was right next to the bar and there was a wedding party at it so throughout the night people were standing by our table talking. We did in the beginning to find another table but they escorted us out of the restaurant to a back room that was used as a banquet room and were currently using for overflow. It was gloomy and toooo quiet so we opted for the bar though it was noisy and distracting.
I did not realize it was a prefix menu at $75, however the food was great.
Service was great, a little stiff but attentive. The waiter did loosen up toward the end, hope it was not because it was tipping time.
The female manager that was taking care of us was extremely patient and very accommodating. Checked on us throughout night.
I personally did not want to sit in bar area and watch football and be distracted by a crowd that stood over my food. This was my biggest problem. I do wonder why they didn't suggest waiting for main dinning room. I didn't ask, because after moving twice, I just wanted to sit.
Food was very good
Service was very good
Atmosphere stuffy for main dinning room and cold in bar area.
