    Very attentative service and food was constantly being replenished on a very, very busy night. Easy to navigate buffet line. Food was a bit underwhelming. Nothing really wrong other than chicken and fish being overdone and dry. Selection was just enough, borderline not quite diverse enough. Dessert counter ok. More variety needed at chocolate fondue other that marshmallows and pineapple.

    We had dinner on a Friday night and loved that the restaurant was not overly busy, no lines for the buffet and the food exceeded our expectations! Our only complaint is that the restaurant is slightly dated but overall a good experience.

    We had the dinner buffet at Eclipse Restaurant on Friday night. The food was very good and there was a lot of choice. The breakfast buffet at Eclipse was outstanding as to the choices. We had dinner at Compass on Saturday night and the food was very good. Perhaps Deerhurst should consider purchasing a blender in order to make strawberry daiquiries as we could not purchase these at Eclipse or Compass. Eclipse did try to make a strawberry daiquiri but it was not the same.

    Not worth the money. Too many pork items they have no consideration for people that dont eat pork even the soup had ham in it. Kids menu sucks no variety no simple food for kids. Overall not worth the money. We had no choice to go there twice because we stayed at the hotel it was convenient for us but second time was worse food wasnt even warm it was cold. This place needs to get someone with a brain to redo the menu.

    Buffet s….s. No value in a $49.95 charge. Maybe 1 or 2 meat choices everything else is potatoes and veggie if you ask me its a complete rip off they are overcharging people because of convenience but its worth driving 10min into town you get a lot more value for the money. Pure rip off this restaurant

    We made a reservation for 8:30 not knowing the restaurant itself/buffet closed at 9:00pm and unfortunately the food was not being replenished and what was left over had clearly been sitting there for a while. It was disgusting quite frankly. Our server did give us a discount on our meal but I would have rather just had a nice dinner.

    The food was fine. Buffet style that my kids like. Not a lot of choice, but it was decent enough. The fish was really dry but everything else seemed ok. The furniture in the restaurant is not well taken care of, pretty shabby actually and detracts from ambiance significantly.

    Overall disappointing. Drink orders didn’t come until we were half done our meal. Plates didn’t get cleared from our table. Food selection was basic and bland. Expected a lot more We were celebrating a birthday while at the resort… wish we had done a different restaurant instead.

    Service was almost non existent and food was not tasty at all. Good selection but just not good tasting food at all. The soup was probably the best part of our meal. Very expensive for the quality of food. We went into Huntsville the next day and had a better meal at Wimpys diner for lunch and a fabulous dinner at Allora for a better price

    Your Restaurant was short staffed do to heavier than normal snow fall. Not your fault. But tables were cleared by one person without the use of a cart or large tray resulting in may trips. The tables sat empty for about 20 minutes and then the same person reset the table I guess assuming it had been cleaned. After all the tables had been set the cleaning staff member told the original staff to remove all the settings so the tables could be washed. This was done . I guess the lack of communication and possibly lack of training was the reason for the observed lack of efficiency. Luckily do to the heavy snowfall a lot of the Restaurant was empty. This is just an observation an all and all a wonderful dining experience.

The team work of your staff was amazing on such a weather invasion some couldn’t get in some couldn’t get out. I will look at going again it is a marvellous place

    We chose eclipse for our family Christmas dinner and were disappointed. Food was cold and bland, no carving station after being told there was going to be one, deserts were store bought. My son is a picky eater and because there were no options for him the kitchen manager was kind enough to get him separate food. Overall not worth the price

    We went to dinner at 7:30pm and the service was really poor . The staff did not pay any attention to us. There was no one to carve the roast beef or no utensils next to it . We had to call out to the staff, wait to - even to get refills of water. We have been to this restaurant many times before and never had a disappointing experience like this one.

    As a vegan, the choices were poor. A hot protein (mock meat) needs to be available for both breakfast and dinner buffet. As a vegan, absolutely not worth the price at all. There are so many options now, it really is unacceptable. However, my friends that are not vegan thoroughly enjoyed their meals.

    Called and made a reservation for two and asked if they’re still serving steaks. Was told yes so we confirmed. Arrived after a 40 minute drive only to find out it was buffet only that evening. Please please please let your answering service know what is available on that nights menu. Thank you and we still look forward to having the great steaks you you serve there.

    We came when the dining room opened. I believe we were the first to arrive. The room is large but a large family were seated right next to us. I was a bit disappointed to find out it was buffet style but it was our travel day and our room wasn't ready so we were happy to have something to do. It took a long time to recieve a glass of wine. The food was hot and lots of variety. I had to go find someone to ask for our bill. Overall the experience was more than disappointing. I can understand the staff shortage. We all are dealing with the aftermath of Covid. There were staff walking around, however, not looking particularly busy. This was 5 PM I must say. My husband and I have looked forward to this trip for a while but I think we have spent our last weekend at Deerhurst.

    Very mediocre service. We sat for about 10 minutes before anyone came to the table. Food was dreadful: dried out rolled turkey breast. Cold potatoes, vegetables were cold and soggy. I ordered a cosmopolitan martin, and I don’t think the bartender knew how to make it. The leaseholds (chairs, tables and other decor) was in need of an update. Upholstered chairs was dirty and wood tables were scratched. All in all a very disappointing experience.

    Food was average at best and we disappointed that when booking the meal it was a buffet. Selection on the buffet was mediocre and grade of food was low. Server was poor, which is almost impossible given her only dutie was to remove plates and serve two drinks. She didn’t even know what beers were available.
