The only reason they got a 2 star was because our waitress rocked! We went here for Thanksgiving yesterday. Horrible! The only good thing I can say was our waitress rocked. The food - awful! The turkey was ok, chicken was good enough to eat, mac and cheese was bland, potatoes were horrible, and the roast they had on the buffet was so hard and dry it was not something you could eat even though it was in grave. I suspect it was out too long also. We went to the starter table and the salad has spaghetti type carrots on the top of it. When you tried to get some salad, the whole lot of carrots came off so that is all you got. Horrible idea! Not many fixings to go on top of the salad either. The rest of the starters were so-so on options.I was concerned they had shrimp out for eating but no way to keep them cold enough I would even try them if I could eat them - I'm allergic to them so I did not try. Moving to the desert table. 1st, they had a fountain to put items in, but most of the items were candy. The brownies were so hard I bet I could have thrown them through a window! The candy had been out too long so they were old and hard to eat. I had a slice of apple pie and it was definitely NOT made from scratch but boxed, just like the Mac & cheese I suspect. Very limited on types of food even though they stated buffet. will NEVER spend $27 on that again! Don't waste your time. Management needs to learn how to put food out so they do not get old and hard. For the price, I expected a lot better food. Sad, because the view was amazing and the waitress we had was awesome.
