Packards at Innisbrook Resort Ratings and Reviews
Comparing this visit to our last visit is like night and day. We were anxious to return since our last visit was all 5 stars. The hostess was the highlight of the evening-welcoming and friendly, helpful from start to finish. Our waitress seemed distracted and was hurrying us to place our order. The food was disappointing. We ordered the sampler appetizer platter. 3 of each-bacon wrapped shrimp, fried goat cheese and conch fritters-there were 4 of us. More generous with the fried calamari -not crispy, breading fell off, sticky meatballs were ok-Luke warm though. We all had different cuts of steak, all cooked perfectly. Twice baked potatoes tasty but Luke warm, Brussels sprouts way undercooked and broccoli rabe was served in long, unmanageable pieces, also undercooked. I love my veggies to have a bite to them but these were barely cooked. Truffle cake was recommended by the hostess and it was delicious. My husband ordered coffee and it took a while for our waitress to bring the sugar and cream after the coffee was served.
It is a steak and seafood restaurant, but I asked if the chef would prepare something vegetarian. He asked what I would like and I simply asked him to be creative and make what he’d make for himself. I received a pasta primavera that was truly exceptional! My spouse had the New York strip steak. It was prepared perfectly. Don’t be put off by the menu if you’re vegetarian, the chef’s accommodation what’s excellent! Our waiter, Mike, has worked there for forty-two years. He was great! Personable, efficient and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this restaurant.
We went on a Sunday night there were a few tables taken but looked like they were expecting some bigger groups. Servers were very attentive and friendly couldn’t be nicer. Bread with specialty flavors , nice choice of wines and good selection on menu. Went with the filet mignon always very good quality! Had the side of creamer spinach wish is soooo good and enough for 4 people to share. We had the chocolate lava cake really delicious and deconstructed key lime was very inventive and yummy. Always a great meal when we come here can’t wait till next time
3 of 4 in our group got sick from the meal. All three had the same meal, side dish and appetizer. Also, our female server was rude, unattentive, and frankly, discriminatory towards us as nonmembers. She was friendly and courteous to several different groups sitting near us after asking them if they were members. We will not return to Packards again.
Because it was a Wednesday night the restaurant was quiet. We all ordered the special on Wednesday which was prime rib, mashed potato & broccoli. Unfortunately there were only 3 prime ribs left, so our waiter offered the Delmonico steak. Everyone enjoyed their meal. It wasn’t the best prime rib I ever had but it was good, and cooked perfectly as ordered. The Delmonico steaks were also very good. Desserts were on the house for the birthday girl. DELICIOUS!!!
We were offered a terrible table even though we had reservations.
The restaurant was about 80 per cent vacant. We asked for a garden view window table and were told no. We eventually got an ok table due to my wife’s persistence. There were window tables available the entire time. We requested 7 or 7:30pm but
could only have 6:30 or 8 pm.
Don’t understand that since their was only a few people there.
Food was great and they gave us a dessert for our anniversary.
This was our first visit to Packards at Innisbrook. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. My Delmonico was prepared as requested, flavorful, and at 22oz more than I could eat at one sitting . My wife's Filet was also delicious and tender.
While the garlic mashed potatoes were somewhat bland to our taste, the bacon roasted brussel sprouts were very good.
Overall it was a nice, quiet evening with any enjoyable meal.
Food was really good but also really expensive. For 6 people with 7 alcoholic drinks, 2 appetizers, soups or salad for everyone, entrees and 1 dessert the total was $455 before tip. It was a special occasion so we splurged but I would go there again. Everything I tried was perfectly delicious.
This was my wife's and my second time to Packard's. We picked Packard's to celebrate our anniversary, which is what we did on our first trip to Packard's a year ago. We were so very impressed our first time we decided to try it again. We were not disappointed. The best parts, once again, were the impeccable service and the food. My wife and I both started with the French Onion Soup (one of the best I've ever had!). We then shared the jumbo shrimp (they were huge!). We both had the filet mignon. Although we prefer different levels of cooking, I prefer medium-well and she prefers medium, both steaks were perfectly prepared. The garlic mashed potatoes are exquisite! Although we were both stuffed by then and had decided not to have dessert, the waitress came out with an ice cream covered brownie with a candle, compliments of the restaurant. Well . . . we couldn't let it go to waste (waist!). Fantastic!
As far as atmosphere, keep in mind that this is a golf course. There is a sports-type bar in the far corner of the restaurant, but it is not very loud nor did it interfere with our dining experience. My wife and I prefer to dress nicely when we go out to celebrate, and a jacket with open collar is appropriate for males and a nice cocktail dress for the ladies (you will see some folks in very casual attire). The overall atmosphere is very relaxed and, depending where you are seated, there is a somewhat scenic view of the golf course.
Pricewise, I would say that Packard's is somewhat less expensive than say Ruth's Chris or Bern's Steakhouse, but not by much. Regardless, we enthusiastically recommend Packard's!
While staying at the innisbrook resort. My wife and myself had dinner at Packards. It was outstanding. Upon arrival we were seated promptly by the hostess, then greeted by our server Sharon. We ordered drinks. While looking over the menu we were told about the specials. We ordered the ahi-tuna & the escargot for appetizers. For our main courses she had the filet mignon cooked perfectly, I had the Lamb Osso Bucco over Gnocchi, could be one of the best dishes I ever had. Finished with coffee & Creme Brule . A truly Fantastic evening. Can't wait to go back again.
For a steakhouse, the steaks were all either over cooked or undercooked. Four of us ordered our steaks cooked the same way and each steak arrived incorrect. Not one was at the correct temperature.
Also, we ordered oysters and were told they were out because of the recent Hurricane (over a month has passed since the hurricane). What is upsetting is that the Chef and Manager lied and blamed the hurricane.
Our server was fantastic! Very helpful and patient. When our food was presented it looked perfect and tasted even better. Our glasses were never empty. The atmosphere is cozy and overlooks the Copperhead course at innisbrook. Great for date night it a special occasion.
