Food and service very good, although weekend was buffet service, so some limitations in selection, and food tended to be more basic. Ambience marred by 6 months of spiders (live) and webs on the Windows. Wouldn't hurt to have them cleaned more than once a year!

The reservation was cancelled 1 hour before due to staff shortage. The restaurant closed because the staff had to work for 4 weddings. NOT THE BEST WAY TO RUN A RETAURANT.

Disappointed with the quality of the food on the dinner buffet. The BBQ chicken was dry, the beef tasteless and the vegetables listed as “root” vegetables was a combination of zucchini and peppers. The only root vegetable was onion.
I ordered a glass of Chardonnay which came to the table warm. When I sent it back the server returned with another warm glass. I was told that someone had unplugged the fridge and he offered ice. As a bartender if I served that it would be an issue, over $12 for a glass of warm wine. Sorry but not acceptable!
Totally overpriced for what you receive!

Even with a reservation for 9 people, our table was not ready on arrival.
Took over 5 minutes before waitress came to our table.
No complaints about the food.
Some dirty plates sat on table a long time before being picked up.
But it was a Labour Day long weekend and some servers may have returned to school.

I was extremely disappointed in the quality and choices available at the dinner buffet. I expected more from a resort of this caliber and reputation. A bill of almost $200 for a family of 4 was atrocious and left me shaking my head. Strongly suggest the menu be looked at as I am sure we were not the only disappointed dinner guests.

Average food at resort prices. Fair selection. Nothing special. Decent service after being ignored at reception. Had reservations, didn’t need them. During high season. Was expecting better.

Good food and ambiance. We thought we would have a table inside the restaurant based on our previously arranged reservation. However, we were directed to the Terrace, which was delightful. The dining room was very noisy on that day anyway. Letting us dine on the Terrace was probably the better choice. We had an enjoyable time dining outside in the fresh air. Our view of the resort was excellent. The food was excellent, and there was so much to choose from. The weather was beautiful, and all of my guests thoroughly enjoyed their experience. This is the most important thing that concerned me. Thank You and well done!!

It was another great experience at the Eclipse. Myself, my wife and son have been going to this restaurant each time we visit Deerhurst and would recommend it to anyone staying at this resort. Food is delicious and lots of options for the little ones. Buffet is the best thing when you have kids so the food is ready to eat. The meat carving station is my favourite and other food options are good accompaniments to the meat. For salad lovers there is enough to diversify your pallet and the dessert station is YUM (as my 5 year old would say). Breakfast is also a hit with the family. Reasonable price and lots to eat to start off your day.

I stayed at deerhurst with my boyfriend for his birthday, i work for skyline horseshoe and the food there is amazing but deerhurst was lacking. We had to make reservation and assumed it was going to be a fine dining restaurant, but it was not anything close to that. Kids running around and people wearing casual to dressing down. As well as it is way too over priced for the quality and quantity of food you get. I am very disappointed that it wasn't worth our money or time unfortunately.

Dinner buffet was rather poor. Main choices of chicken thighs, ribs or roast beef. Nothing was very tasty nor good quality. Restaurant is beautiful however. Would recommend breakfast buffet instead.

We found the buffet rather disappointing for the cost...$37.95 pp. The main courses were just ok nothing really special with limited choices . The salad bar was ok. Desserts were rather disappointing. Nothing homemade really and out of certain things by the time we were ready to partake. Would we eat there again? No. Better food in the Maple Leaf pub.

Too expensive for options given. Not one pasta dish. Udon Noodles were ok. Should have pizza and healthy options for kids besides Mac and cheese, nuggets and hamburger sliders. Spaghetti with tomato sauce or lasagna or simpler soup besides cream of mushroom. A nice chicken noodle with real veggies and chicken in it or butternut squash or minestrone. Very few vegetables. Just raw carrots celery and a broccoli dish with cheese on it, terrible. Ice cream bar only had ice cream in a styrofoam bowl. Hospitals give those to kids when they get their tonisils out, and u should have a trash for lids etc. Garbage stayed on the table that had sprinkles and choc Sauce. Not a very good fondue either. Couldn’t have been real chocolate. More like syrup from a store shelf.

Waitress was the best. Sooo nice and very attentive. Staff make all the difference but way too expensive for a dinner buffet that lacked options. Hey

We had dinner and breakfast at Eclipse . The roast beef was chewy- my husband couldn't eat his, but the fish and chicken breasts were good at dinner. I did like the potatoes in cheese sauce as well. One criticism- there was no one waiting to slice roast beef, and while my husband waited for someone to arrive-the food already on his plate started to cool down.The selection at breakfast was very good, and service is excellent. We do enjoy looking out at lake, and would return for the breakfast.

Very poor service. When we asked for a menu we were told we could only eat from the buffet because it would take too long to get something off the menu. Buffet was very limited, desserts were similar to what you would find at Walmart (mini cupcakes, two bite brownies, store bought pie, etc). Our server seemed to forget about us and didn’t even visit to refill our drinks. When we finally found her, we asked for our bill and when we still hadn’t received it over 20 mins later, we went to the main desk in the restaurant to request it again. Another server finally tracked down our original server and had her print out our bill. Very poor service, overpriced at almost $40 a person for the buffet, mediocre food at best, and no compensation for horrible customer service. Will never be back and would not recommend to anyone!

It was a buffet and the food was warm, dried out and by the time we went up to the buffet, not much left in the serving bowls. The food was not presented well and one would expect it to be better then you make at home. The service was extremely slow which was surprising since it was not busy. We had to go and look for our server in order to pay the bill. The tables next to us were not cleaned once the customers left. The staff just kept walking by it. Eventually someone showed up and took the dirty dishes away.

Food was mediocre. Just chicken thighs and pork ribs plus a few side dishes. risotto, broccoli and something else. Not very inspired for $37.95,. Was expecting roast beef and maybe some shrimp. No show. three main salads, nice display of deli meats and cheese and the desserts were delicious. Would we come again to the buffet? Not in the near future. Would prefer the Compass Restaurant, if we dome back.

I was very disappointed. The dinner buffet was terrible, especially for the price. I wouldnt even pay half the price it costs. The breakfast buffet was better. As for dinner, the other restaurants on the resort are much better. I will not return.
