    We went for the seafood boil and prime rib. That sat us and then told us they were out of the seafood boil and prime rib. I was very disappointed.

    Big change from previous years. We could always count on a delicious meal at the Cafe. The new menu is very limited. No Friday fish fry or weekend buffet. We ordered the prime rib and seafood special which was a big dissapointmenr. Not a single shrimp. Clams were cold , hard and dry. Most of the clam shells were empty. Snow crab legs were cold and served with a nutcracker which is useless for soft snow crab. We didn’t even eat them. The corn, boiled potatoes and sausage were very good. The prime rib was ok and the mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables that came with it were good. The price of $60 per person was ridiculous. Should have been $60 for two people. The service has always been excellent until now. Very slow now. Almost impossible to get the check and when it comes there’s another half hour wait to process payment. We come every year for the same event and look forward to the fabulous experience at the cafe. Now we’re wondering what to do next year. I guess we can order pizza from town or bring our own food. We’re just so sad that this has happened. We also had the breakfast buffet this morning which we enjoyed but the price is way too high since they started charging $3.50 for coffee and $5 for juice. Both used to be included and we assumed they still were. No one mentioned that they weren’t when they were offered. It’s a beautiful room with a fabulous view and we will miss it as part of our annual weekend adventure.

    Big change this year from previous years. Menu is very limited. No Friday fish fry or buffet. We were seated on time with a reservation for 4. Our server was pleasant but our service was dismal. We rarely saw her. We waited an hour for our meals and we only had sandwiches and a salad. The food has changed and is no longer dependably delicious. I didn’t care for my shrimp po boy. The shrimp were big and juicy but the sauce and pickles were off putting. When the food finally arrived the French fries were cold. We were provided with hot fries right away. It took 45 minutes to get our checks and then to process the payments. We had to flag down other employees to help us get some attention from out server and even that didn’t work. We were seated for 2 hours before we could leave. We had allowed an hour for our meal and ended up missing our event. Unacceptable and very surprising. We have always had a wonderful experience at the cafe but something has happened.

    The server was terrible and did not know the menu. Totally unacceptable for the price of the food. We did not receive all the food that was described on the menu. She even had the nerve to say it was optional upon request. It was clearly supposed to be part of the meal and if it was optional she should of offered it. Crab legs was also part of the meal and they were ice cold and not warmed to a serving temperature

    The food choices were limited and the food was very average. We ordered chicken and rice soup and it didn’t arrive until after our meal. There was no Chicken or rice in the soup. The service was very slow as well. I would look elsewhere. Wish they would broaden the menu choices. Ambience was nice.

    Everything about our meal was amazing! We had the filet and the salmon and it was outstanding. The steak was done perfectly and my husband was able to cut it with a butter knife. He couldn’t say enough about it. There was a lot going on at the hotel that weekend but the service was outstanding and the place was very clean. Look forward to going back again.

    The service was extremely poor. The food was, as expected, mediocre. I had to go to the bar myself twice to order a drink. I had to ask other servers for help. I should have ordered a pizza for delivery. I would have been less disappointed.

    We had excellent service (thank you Dawn!) and the food was very good. I had the salmon off the menu and it was cooked perfectly, veggies were very good and overall it was very tasty. Husband had the Saturday evening buffet and loved it. There were so many items to choose from, from salads and veggies, prime rib, shrimp, sides and desserts. Overall, very good dining experience.

    Food was disappointing and midway between our dinner a family with 3 toddlers was seated next to us. It was noisy and disruptive. The restaurant was not full and they could have easily put the family in a more discreet place. We were on vacation and wanted to enjoy our time together.

    Wanted to have Easter lunch here with my family. Made a 3pm reservation on Wednesday. At 11am on Easter morning, the restaurant called me and asked to push my reservation back because the kitchen closed at 3pm to prepare for dinner service. I told them I couldn't, and they said they would honor my reservation anyway. When we arrived, our waitress was very pushy and was clearly trying to get us out of there. I appreciate that they accommodated my reservation, but don't let me reserve a table at 3pm if the kitchen is closed then! The food was good. I ordered a turkey BLT, which tasted good, but was cold, which I chalked up to the kitchen being closed. Overall, not especially pleased with my experience here.

    We had the hummus, and the meat/cheese platter for appetizers. The meat/cheese platter was by far our favorite thing! I had the avocado chop salad and my husband had the Turkey BLT. Both were good. I also had a slice of carrot cake for dessert and it was very good.

    Our experience was really disappointing. It took 20 minutes to be waited on, almost 25 minutes for our food. When our food did arrive, it was barely warm. My fries were cold, carrots were burned and steak was warm-ish. My husbands food was barley warm as well. We didn’t complain because 1) we were starving 2) we never saw our waitress again until she brought the bill. While I know things are different since Covid, I am prepared with patience for it. However, there seemed to be no effort to explain that the kitchen was behind, or say we are only going to accept a certain amount of reservations. We opted not to eat the buffet because the breakfast buffet had been bad and we are cutting calories. Sorry to say, but after 20+ years of going there, we will be seeking out another resort

    We got there when they were busy so we waited 2.5 hours after getting online and doing a reservation. The waiters really pushed the buffet so we got that. We came at a time where items had been out awhile. I complained about my food being cold and the server and manager were gracious. When the fresh food came out we got it and it was ok. I wouldn’t recommend the buffet. If the kitchen is busy just wait . I don’t need unlimited random food. I prefer hot quality made for me goodies. We had breakfast there the next day and skipped the buffet. My business partner had latke which found delicious and I had simple bacon and eggs with really good toast from a local bakery. It was hot Freh and yummy. We had window seats full of sunshine and a nice view. Very nice

    Sat down for dinner and the waitress positioned the only option of the high priced buffet. She took our drink order and said help your self. It was not until after we realized they also had a menu. 45 dollars for a buffet was way over priced.
