Had the breakfast buffet on Sunday AM, good food and service. Sitting outside on the patio overlooking the golf course was a good choice.

The website indicated one menu but the menu and the restaurant have many fewer items on it stop was very pleasant nobody in the restaurant virtually impossible to get any attention to refill our Iced Teas rather surprising considering we are the only two people in the restaurant and there are five employees. Food quality was tasty and delicious and okay twice if you're eating in the hotel I wouldn't make a trip to this location specifically for that.

The good: The patio is nice and the staff is friendly. The cocktails were good. Our server comp’d us a dessert.

The bad: The food was ok, meh for one dish and blah for the second. I don’t expect genius at hotel restuarants, and was disappointed even with my already low expectations. The chicken and rice dish was meh. The shrimp, polenta and spinach was decent overall, but the shrimp was flavorless (I usually don’t order fish/shrimp inland, and this dish is a good example why—the shrimp was not super fresh, but it wasn’t super good, either—blah for the shrimp). The other entrees on the limited menu (6 entrees total) was pretty blah, too, which is how I ended up ordering shrimp in the desert.

The ugly: The pumpkin cheesecake is easliy the worst dessert I have had that I can remember. The texture, shape and flavor were way, way off. The texture was airy and grainy—nothing I associate with cheesecake. It was a weird shape (4 ice cube-sized pieces molded together). The flavor was bland and a foul combination of spices. Stay away. My theory is that the server knew how bad it was, so he brought us the molten chocolate dessert at the same time (on the house), which was nice.

Also, the hotel can’t control the guests, but it can manage its servers better. A lady at another table kept calling our server over every time he came to our table, so he’d delay taking our drink, food and dessert orders every time she called him over. The server or GM should have handled this by assigning one of the less-busy servers to handle this high-maintenance guest (there were only 4 tables with guests, our server had 2, and there were 2 other servers, meaning one was free), but they didn’t.

Recommendation: Enjoy the cocktails, patio and service, but if you have to eat, you’re probably better off somewhere else if you have a choice. And AVOID the pumpkin cheescake no matter what.

The food was awesome but very limited choices. We were overwhelmed with pork and shellfish or cheese mixed with meat so we could only eat the chicken.

A great spot to sit in the evening by the fire with a few friends over a drink. The fire is a must this time of the year.
