“Good food, over priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The food is good but very overpriced. The pork chop was ridiculously large (12 ounces) but delicious.

“Very good food but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at The Abbey so for the first night after arriving we ate at The Grill. I have some food intolerances and they were very helpful. I had a fish special with tilapia, flash fried spinach & risotto & my companion had the spinach salad with grilled chicken. The food was great. The views of the marine & grounds were very nice. However it was quite a pricey meal especially at the end when a scoop of vanilla ice cream cost us $6. I would suggest this as a treat for 1 meal while vacationing but not to try to eat there daily while at the resort.

“Do not eat here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Prime rib at buffet was undercooked. They ran out of crab legs so we didn't get any. The baked potato bar was ok but the potato I had was undercooked. Totally over priced for the quality of food you will be served. The desserts tasted like they came straight from a box from the frozen food aisle.
