Barbadoes Room -The Mills House Wyndham Grand Hotel Ratings and Reviews
Christmas Morning Breakfast.
Another great trip to the Barbados Room. Simple breakfast food that was hot on the table, tasted excellent, with great service. I enjoyed the pancakes with the sage sausage. My wife had the malted waffles. It also was served with sausage. Either meal could have been ordered with bacon. We came in too early to have a mimosa. We had coffee and tea. They can only be served after 10:00 AM. Not a problem. We will come back. We want to get a chance to go for dinner here too. Thanks for a fine morning.
The service (we had Steve as our waiter...two thumbs up!), inside scenery, and live pianist playing during our brunch were the highlights of this dining experience. The food was disappointing. Two of our party members ordered the shrimp and grits and it was hardly more than a grit soup. There were, at most, 4 shrimp swimming in a bowl of liquid. Another party member ordered the steak and eggs oscar. His plate arrived to the table 10 minutes after all other party members had already been served their food and both the steak and egg were over cooked. I will say that this restaurant offers brunch prices that are far cheaper (HELLO $3 mimosas and bloody Mary's!) than most places in downtown so at least our wallets weren't hurting after the bill. May come back in the future to try dinner but most likely will not return for brunch.
The main room was being used for an employee Christmas party so we were diverted to the bar for dinner. The she-crab soup was fine but everything else we ordered was inedible... when the entrees finally arrived from the kitchen after a long delay from the appetizer. The stuffed acorn squash was lukewarm and filled with what tasted like Stove Top stuffing. The butternut squash ravioli I got after sending the acorn squash back was swimming in chicken broth and the edges of the ravioli were uncooked. My husband's fish was ok but the vegetables were cold. It was one of the worst dining experiences we've had. Our server was helpful and very polite about the whole thing but we basically went to bed without having eaten. Also, sitting in the bar with football on the TV is not my idea of having a nice meal. The music from the party was loud and the bar area became even noisier as people spilled out from the main party room. I wish we had been warned so we could have chosen to leave the hotel for dinner.
Two of the three in our party were VERY happy with their selections. One found the she crab soup to be heavy and tasteless and the salad to be sprinkles with tiny nuts that were IMPOSSIBLE to eat.
Have never had a more accommodating waitress. She is a GEM!
The Barbados room was nice. We had Thanksgiving dinner there and the service especially from our waiter was excellent. It was a bit slow but that's to be expected because it was crowded due to the holiday. The food was on a scale of 1 to 10 about A7. I would recommend this place because it's lovely on the inside and they have a nice wine list as well.
We were staying at the Wyndham Mills house and did go to some great restaurants around our hotel, yet it was not only convenient to eat at the Barbadoes Room, the selection of choices and tasty cuisine along with great staff service was excellent ! Kudos to our waiter Jeff!
We were there for The Sunday Blues Brunch. Flavor wise- the food tasted good; however, execution was awful. We waited more than 30 minutes after ordering and everyone's food arrived nearly room temperature. Most of us sent it back to be reheated. It arrives again after several more minutes only slightly warmer. Pancakes tasted great, but were flat and dense. My crab meat benedict had lots of cartilage and the first order arrived with a well done egg. The second"reheated" order arrived with a very runny egg. So runny, the whites weren't set.
Service was friendly, but didn't match the ambiance or luxury of the hotel. Our waitress seemed better suited for a IHOP or something similar. Overall, I wouldn't return and I would suggest management make changes in the kitchen. Last note, management never came to our table to address our legitimate concerns, but our second round of $3 happy hour mimosas were comped.
I was not at all appeased by this meal. First, I ordered a half dozen oysters that looked like they were juveniles, and not quite ready to be shucked/served. They were so small... minute! Followed by the scallop entree, in which was absolutely horrible. The dish was not a cohesive dish at all. As if they took a mystery basket and came up with a dish. And the presentation was VERY amateurish!!! I sent this dish back in exchange for the pan seared snapper entree and that wasn't at all accommodating. I can honestly say that the fish was prepared to perfection but it sat upon a pickled corn type of slaw, if you will, that was swimming in this pungent vinegar based liquor. Very unappetizing!!! I was shocked that these particular types of dishes were being served with confidence. On a good note, my server Melanie was AMAZING! She did what she could with what she was given. She kept an upbeat demeanor and fulfilled her duties. I appreciate her😉 Unfortunately, I will NOT be returning to the Barbadoes Room again. Very disappointing !!!
We dined at the Barbados Room for Mother's Day brunch buffet. The food was decent but many of the items were cold. Shrimp and grits a no go, which was surprising since this dish is a lowcountry favorite. Collards were way too sweet. Squash casserole was really good. Dessert selection was really really bad. Preboxed cream puffs and eclairs.
Waaay overpriced for what was served.
The best thing about the experience was the ambiance/environment.
It's been a long time since a beautiful delicious buffet has been offered here. We wish they were held more often than a couple of times a year. The taste of the food, ambiance and service were wonderful. However, the desserts were very skimpy compared to past buffets held at the restaurant. Such as there used to be make your own hot fudge sundaes as well as cakes and pies. And we would like to see the shrimp salad added back to the menu. It was a bit pricey. But this was due to what was served and it was Mother's Day.
Went for Easter Brunch. Few restaurants in Charleston offer buffet style, we enjoyed this option and the classic ambiance. Plentiful raw bar, free flowing champaign (mimosa and peach option), Southern style hot station, salad and deserts. Very attentive and friendly staff. The weather was perfect, so we choose the beautiful courtyard full of flowers, near the fountain which "whited out" near by table conversations. Live music. We arrived late and had time to eat, but the champaign station closed exactly at 3pm (the time brunch was to stop) which was a bit abrupt for those of us who had a later seating. We are used to the hot stations closing a bit earlier, but desert and drinks allowing for later arrivals at other places we have had Sunday brunch, especially at the high price. Don't book too late if you want to enjoy the full meal at pleasure.
Each year my wife and I try to attend the Easter Sunrise service at the Battery. It finishes around 7:30am so I made reservations for Breakfast in the Barbados room. Because of Easter brunch, there was no breakfast in the Barbados room = a fact the never showed up on your web site when reservations were made. Instead, they had set up a mediocre, at best, small buffet in a hallway. The staff did their best, but with the location, the food and its outrageous price, the meal was nowhere up to my recollections of this location. As a result, we will be looking for our breakfast elsewhere.
The food was great, we especially enjoyed the sweet potato pancakes. We came for Sunday Brunch because of the live piano music. It was disappointing to only have music for about twenty minutes of our over one hour at the restaurant. It was an enjoyable atmosphere nevertheless.
