    Buffet style. Decent selection of choices. Desserts looked like Metro brand. Dining area is very tired. Tables scratched and sticky. Placemats or table cloths would help. Have staged at Deerhurst before. Definitely no longer upscale

    Eclipse was running with a dinner buffet format which was very good - the tables are looking a bit tired and would benefit from either refinishing or use table cloths to cover them up

    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.

    The drinks were watery, the food didn’t seem fresh and tasted not great at all. The food was lacklustre for $35 buffet. The salads were okay but the Caesar salad was drenched in dressing.

    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.

    Surprisingly they had a buffet, likely due to staff shortage as there was a wedding in the hotel that night but they should have let us know in advance and not just when we got there. We also thought the price was too high as we went for dinner, not to stuff ourselves silly.

    Extremely poor service. Waited for almost 15 minutes for waiter after being seated cause he said he was busy with a big party of 30 people. Maybe not the waiter’s fault but definitely poor management to not assign another waiter. We’ve eaten here 6 times on 3 separate stats this year and this will be our last.

    An excellent dining experience although why should I review out there are dum dums out there that can't appreciate a restaurant experience any way The eclipse: Made reservation was seated immediately and greater by a nice hostess. Young server on the ball. Well timed had everything and organized. Staff worked as as a team players. Endless supply of chilled water. Great mocktail menu. My son and I enjoyed them with gusto! 14 and chugged two back with ease. Drawback they forgot to give us gummies! All is forgiven. No biggie. Alex explained the menu was busy but didn't show she was stressed or pressed for time. Great Buffet was clean and well laid out seating was carefully timed efficiently. Not too packed with people vying for food. Except for a crowd at at the lovely dessert buffet of course! Deelish! Yummo! Best cup of nescafe coffee. Hot and not too bitter. Decor well managed tidy and clean a little stuck in the 90s chairs still comfortable heavy but aged just like the crowd or mob there. Appreciated the staff these young women carry such heavy loads and dishes for goodness sake! Beautiful views large windows. A vaulted wood roof. Impeccably designed wood clean. Chandeliers so out of reach and I presume the servers are not forced by managers/owners to dust wood beams or upper level windows. Serious fall there too. Achtung! They didn't just offer a brail menu even though I don't read braille. Bummer! I brought my own translating system from home. Love the separate kids section. Fun stuff for the little ones. I can go on and because I can't or do I want it? That is the question. Thanks for overall dining experience. See you next year at our Deerhurst yearly pilgrimage or stay sojourn. Will spread the word for you of course no need to market it its a no brainer just use the resorts web page!

    It was a buffet for Almost 50 a person. A little expensive for ‘not bad’ All you can eat apps but but not the mains. The beef strip loin, although cooked well, was very tough. Service at first was slow to arrive but when our server did finally arrive Felix was wonderful. Don’t think we would do it again. As far as we know it’s the same every night. At least the nights that we are here anyway.

    We were beyond disappointed with our experience. I have been in the past & can't believe how downhill it's come. Service was absolutely appalling & practically nonexistent. The host was lovely & we were sat right away. A metal water jug dripping with condensation was put in the middle of our table& they walked away. We poured our own water, the condensation created a puddle in the middle of the table. After several min, the server came took our order & seemed put out that we asked for ice. We were satisfied with the self serve appetizer bar, it had something for everyone. Unfortunately, after 2 rounds to the appetizer bar we then sat and waited for anyone to come check on us for at least 8 min. We tried to signal to a server (they were chatting at the service stand). Our table was full of dirty dishes, the water jug was empty and we had yet to receive our alcoholic beverages. Our server walked by and we signaled her & asked for the mains. She said she was sorry and it would be another 10 min or so. She then left, but didn't clear the table. Finally, another server came with our entrees, but had to turn back to the kitchen bc the table was full of dirty plates. Someone came to bus some of them and our mains were served. One of my guests specifically asked if the carved roast could be served blue, or rare, and the other asked for med. She assured us it was fine. When the beef was served both were med to well done. We asked and she said that was as rare as it went. While eating we saw several rare cuts of beef served to surrounding tables which made us feel lied to. When we were through with our meal, we went for dessert and wanted coffee and cocktails. The server never came to bus the table and at this point we had appetizer, main and dessert plates on the table and water was dripping on the floor from the unwiped condensation. When the server dropped the bill, she never asked about coffee and we were so upset we just left. Terrible absentee service.

    Red sauce used for the mussels was not very good at all and the mussels very over cooked. You can’t have mussels sitting in a heated container that long. We ate outside, and there was cobwebs attached from our seats to the table edge.
