                            Average buffet food like powdered eggs, boxed cereals, etc. Not many gluten-free, dairy-free options, for healthier eating.

                            Don't be fooled by the photos and menu on their website- it's not remotely upscale. In fact, the entire restaurant appears to have been redone and doesn’t look like the open table photos any longer inside. We scheduled a 6:30 Friday night reservation and indicated it was “date night.” We were sat on the patio facing a tether ball, fire pit, and adjacent to a loud pool between right 2 families with small kids. There were people walking around a walking path and children running everywhere - it's a resort, so the place was busy. The patio has typical metal patio furniture. No table cloths. The Friday night menu was set and "family style," so for $100 we had roasted chicken, frozen chicken fried steak, and stale German chocolate cake. There was no mention of this when I made the reservation. The service was fine, but the whole experience was incredibly lackluster. If you're not staying at the resort, there is absolutely no reason to eat here. I cannot stress enough that it is nothing like it is portrayed online. It is a casual cafe you could maybe have a work lunch at. Deeply misleading and hugely overpriced and disappointing.

                            We usually do the Christmas brunch but that wasn't available due to Covid. Food was good, service was a little disjointed and there was no Christmas atmosphere in the restaurant. Hope the brunch is back next year.

                            First off, We went to the Hyatt for Christmas dinner. We both ended up very sick after the dinner. I am usually not a negative critic but that was one of the worst dinners we ever had. The food tasted like it was not fresh and like it was frozen and defrosted. The meat appeared to be pre-cooked frozen food and was not like the prime rib they advertise. Everything about the dinner was bad. The bread was stale, the cake was still half frozen. Definitely the worst Christmas dinner we have ever had. We booked the hotel because of the dinner but ended up greatly disappointed. I would expect better from a five star hotel.

                            We go every year to Hyatt Lost Pines to celebrate Thanksgiving. Due to Covid, and the restrictions, the poor staff were not prepared for the “fix” and all “family style serving” required. The plan did not work, we waited way too long to only have cold food. The staff is incredible and we love them. We were happy to tip them but not happy for the huge bill for disappointing food.

                            We have come here for Thanksgiving and Christmas before and we’re always pleased. It was nothing special this year. The $35. Price was good until you added taxes and fees. Before the hotel was decorated inside and out for Christmas. Eating this year it didn’t even feel like Christmas. In other times someone walked around singing Christmas Carols, out side activities and games surrounded by outside decorations besides a few lights. Probably will not be back. My only good thing to say was our waiter was Excellent! Didn’t mind giving him a good tip. He was very delightful. As to recommending it to a friend for Christmas, no. I used to recommend it to everyone. Since we weren’t with family this year we wanted to do something Special. We remembered other visits were fun so we decided to come again.

                            This was my first visit to Firewheel and we decided to go there for the Christmas buffet since they were one of the few places open and the price for the buffet was better than other buffets that day. The wait staff was very attentive and there were several people available if I had a question about the food. The one thing I appreciated most was cards at each food item stating whether they were gluten free or vegetarian, etc. I also was happy to see that they use paper straws. Every little bit helps. Thank you Firewheel for making my Christmas day a great one.

                            We had Christmas Day lunch here and it was outstanding. The selection was huge and every dish was creative and gourmet quality which is unusual for a buffet. The whole hotel was beautifully decorated and we especially appreciated the free bikes with helmets. Our five year old (whose meal was free!) said he wanted to live there. We loved everything about it and it was very reasonably priced compared to buffets in other Austin 5 star hotels. All in all a great experience. We plan on making it a holiday tradition.

                            We weren't aware we were getting the buffet until we were already there (had made a reservation and it wasn't mentioned anywhere), but the food was good (loved the pork belly) and the kids were happy. We were there to celebrate their birthday, and the waiters brought out custom cupcakes and sang to them, which was really sweet. And of course, they loved the buffet of dessert options, including a chocolate fountain.

                            I cannot say enough good things about the staff at this restaurant. We were staying at the resort and we sat down to dinner...my daughter got unexpectedly sick after we had ordered and my husband had to take her back to the room. The staff was beyond accommodating, delivering the food to our room and bending over backwards to assist. Once we were able to enjoy the food, it was delicious..steaks cooked to perfection, crabcakes excellent, and sides amazing. I highly recommend.

                            We love the food and service! Considering it is one of the few options in the Hyatt, we had low expectations but were thrilled at the variety on the buffett! The price was comparable to a dinner at any other restaurant in the Hyatt but the food options were amazing and really good! Highly recommend!

                            Delicious food, attentive service, fun atmosphere! This is a large restaurant located inside the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort. The resort attracts a lot of families, so expect children and the accompanying noise. This is not the spot for a romantic date or serious business meeting, but is perfect for a family get-together or casual dining with friends.

                            We went early in the evening, our waiter was prompt and courteous. We had more than one staff check in on us and tend to our needs if any. I had a pasta dish and it was very slightly overcooked but was ok for me and the rest of the table all had excellent meals (Steaks all cooked properly to desire). Soups and salads were right on for flavor and content ( the dressing option was phenominal). The bread/rolls offered were crunchy on the outside and I prefer a softer roll however had good bread flavor. The desserts were a good portion size and delicious. Our waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and described items to a T. We had comfortable seating and was not to cold as that tends to be an issue when living in TX. Hot outside, cold inside. A very pleasant experience overall for our first visit. It is a pricier menu for us so not for everyday dining but good for occasions.

                            I thought there was a dinner menu you could order from, but upon sitting was told it was buffet only. Being a vegetarian that never really works out to be worth it for me and this wasn't any different. I had mason jar salad, green beans and potatoes. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and had I know in advance we would have gone elsewhere. The food was good just not worth the cost. We also reserved an outdoor table and were frequently forgotten about. I needed to go find our server to get the check.

                            On saturdays they only do a buffet, which at $28 per adult I found to be a very poor value. Nothing outstanding about the food, but not horrible. Wish I had gone off the resort though.

                            We made reservations to go here based on the menu. When we got there, we realized the menu listed on this app is NOT the menu for this restaurant. It is the menu for Stories--the nicer restaurant in the hotel. The dinner for this restaurant was a buffet including fried chicken and tater tots--something that as parents we would have enjoyed if our daughter was with us, but not when we were on a work retreat weekend with adults. And, we were celebrating our friends' 10th anniversary, so we were looking for something nice. This was not it. I will say that we had a nice breakfast the next morning there and enjoyed the buffet. But, if you think to are going to enjoy the food on what they show as the dinner menu on here, you will be disappointed. On a positive note, we ended up getting into Stories at about 9:00 and the food was delicious! Some others ate at the BBQ place and said it was really good too.
