    We were excited to hear the Friday night Seafood Buffet is back. Crab legs did not disappoint. Mine were cooked to the correct temperature. Food selection was very good. It offered other selections if you are not a seafood fan. I did think they should have some type of potato on the buffet. While we did not like the location of our table, our server did take very good care of us.

    No one to direct us where to sit. Not enough staff to keep the hot bar from being backed up. Food slightly under cooked or over cooked. Strawberry tasted like wax paper. Nothing like the Friday night buffet.

    Ran out of crab legs briefly at 6 pm. Our server tried so hard to meet the demands of the job. 15 tables is entirely too many. She was an EXCELLENT server, but she LITERALLY had to run between tables. She had tables in the private room. They ran her ragged and did it on purpose. They were laughing about it at the buffet. We tipped her greatly to help offset the unfair treatment. Management-do better. Step in and speak to these customers when you see it happen. We did not see a manager the entire visit. The lady at the check in/reservation desk was rude to two groups before us who were waiting on the rest of their party. Then the same woman BARKED orders at our server to wipe tables. The poor young lady was ran ragged. That woman from the desk should have grabbed a cloth and wiped down tables. The food was Tremendously wonderful. A little offset that in less than four months, the price increased almost 10%.

    Food was wonderful. Waitstaff was awesome. The biggest problem is getting in the door. The lady working the front is really slow. We waited 15 minutes while she seated people. There is no order. A group of four walked up at 5 to the desk and she sat them, in front of several other parties who had been there for 15+ minutes. When arriving, no one knows to check in, wait in line or what. It’s a bit frustrating. She is using a tablet and paper to seat people. There’s got to be a better way. She also can be a bit rude. Once you get seated, everything is wonderful!!

    Outstanding as usual. Food was the top shelf. Crab legs cooked just right. The prime rib was WOW. Great place to go. We were a party of 2 this time and we were seated too close to other couples The only thing I didn't like

    Had a business meeting breakfast. They did not have a menu available, only offered the $19 buffet. The buffet was out of several items and not restocked during our time so we ended up feeling like the value was definitely not there.

    The crab legs were good, but there really wasn’t much variety other than that. We had to constantly wait for scallops and shrimp. I don’t know if $55 is a good price for the food you can get.

    Service was great, there was only the hostess and 1 chef for omelets but they did great getting the job done. But on the other hand, the restaurant is getting very run down- chairs looking rough, pleather peeling off of them. To be honest, eating at Golden Corral is better for and better atmosphere. It is VERy pricy to eat breakfast- $20 per person for buffet. But buffet has nothing more on than the Quality Inn does. Not worth the money!

    We came for the seafood buffet. Crablegs were awesome. Only 2 choices of shrimp were cold with way too much seasoning and popcorn shrimp in butter fried in a skillet. No fried shrimp only oysters were in the shell on ice. No fish, scallops or hushpuppies. Prime rib was way to under cooked. Salad bar looked nice. Desserts were good. Very disappointed that after paying $55 per person and they were 6 of us that we were charged for soft drinks that were not included in the $55 buffet price. Our waitress was very nice and we left her a $30 tip. Need more variety if it is going to be advertised as a seafood buffet. We drove 1 hr 45 minutes just to try the seafood buffet.

    Getting food to the table was slow, but it was fresh & hot, and our server was exceptional. The food was good and plentiful, no one had any complaints. Mistake with one meal resulted in an unpleasant delay for one member of my party (of 9), but he still was satisfied & they fixed it and offered free dessert, a price adjustment, or both. He declined but appreciate the offer. Prices are a bit on the high side for this area (about $25 per person) , but we will go back.

    Everything was good maybe even better than before. Everyone that ate there before know what I'm talking about. Probably the best seafood buffet in the Tri-Cities. May be even East Tennessee. They seem to take pride in there seafood buffet being the best around. Don't everyone start going there because i want to always be able to get a table!!!!!!!.

    The food was PHENOMENAL. Crab LEGS were hot and fresh. Prime Rib was rare and flavorful. Scallops seasoned well. Love the new cheddar biscuits. Chilled shrimp was seasoned heavily. I do prefer it plain. The mashed potatoes tasted fresh. Cheesecakes? How do you choose just one? There were other entrees. Salmon was good. Did not try the trout dip. Green beans YUM. Our server was actually the bartender so she was overextended. The manager gave us a discount when we inquired. The server/bartender said she was having to cover too many stations. It was not crowded. We were sat at 5:30 pm. $54 for adults. $49 for seniors. Worth it if you go hungry!! Gentlemen carving and serving on the bar were SUPERB!!! Very friendly, funny, attentive, and conversational. Can’t wait to go back.

    We arrived at 2 pm. Our reservation was 230 pm we waited at least 1 hour after our reservation. I took a look inside and there were at least a dozen tables empty and set up. I went in where the buffet was . They only had one line open. There was only turkey avalible, we were told that's all they had left. No prime rib and no ham. They were slicing the turkey paper thin. They were out of dressing, we were told they couldn't make more they had no ingredients to. They were out of veggies except for green beans and potatoes. Their rolls were cold. Their dessert table was pitiful. One kind of cake and apple pie and pumpkin pie. They ran out of the bananas foster. We had 3 people over the age of 93 one 96 all with walkers. They put us at a table that was the most distance from where the buffet line was and in a corner. When we were finished the gal asked if we needed seperate checks. We told her yes and whom. She asked if we could give her our credit cards so she wouldn't have to walk back and forth to the cashier. I mentioned lime our over 90 and ALL of us had too when they ran out of food. She said they feed a sports team earlier and that is why they ran out of food. They were going to discount our meal to 25.00ea because they ran low on food. I mentioned they didn't run low they RAN OUT of food period. We have eaten our last 6 Thanksgiving meals here and it was always perfect. Except whenbthey didn't have it during the pandemic. We have also had our Christmas dinner there a couple of times. They should of NEVER sat us down and given us vouchers for another time. Our meal was terrible the experience was terrible. We had 4 people in our family here from out of state. One veggieterian there were not veggies left except for green beans and potatoes. We do not plan on having our meal there again. They treated our elderly very bad seriously putting us with 3 on walkers across the banquet room on the furthered side away from the food buffet and bathrooms.

    Terrible experience. If you can't do it right, don't do it at all. Got there at 2:10, waited 30 minutes for a table. Service was terrible. Had already run out of prime rib and ham. Also, no dressing/stuffing for the turkey. Shrimp shooters were dried out and tasteless. Chocolate cake was terrible. The rest of the food was average at best. Had to get up and stop a waiter for refills. Cracker Barrel or even Golden Corral would have been much better. Certainly not worth anything close to the $50 they charged.

    We had reservations for Thanksgiving dinner at 2:15 PM. When we arrived at 2PM and let the hostess know we were there she said they were clearing tables and it should not be too long. About that time at least 2 basketball teams arrive and are led to a separate room were they were immediately seated and fed from a separate buffet. The whole thing was completely disorganized. The hostess was calling names in a very crowded room without any audio / microphone on her podium. She was tyrying to find open tables by leaving the podium and looking herself. When I walked into the banquet room there were at least 10 tables set up and ready, They seated large parties that arrived much later than our 3 person reservation and could not get tables cleared because now their limited staff was waiting on the basketball teams instead of clearing tables in the main banquet room. When we finally were seated around 3:30PM most of the food was out and not being refreshed. Prime rib was completely out and never refreshed. Turkey was almost gone. Ham was over cooked and sitting in dishes that ho one was eating. The salad bar was down to just lettuce and a couple of other items and never replenished. The cheese / charcuterie was destroyed and never replenished. Shrimp cocktail shooters were sitting on a table and not kept cool. We watched one of the staff picking up dropped food and other trash with gloves on and then handled food without changing gloves. We had to go find someone to get our drinks. When I asked for the manager he was full of excuses why they were having issues and said "we have served 1100 people". My reponse was you need to give us a discount. He did cut the price to $25.00 per person plus an 18% Banquet hall add on that we were not expecting. Needless to say this is not the service I expected from a Marriott conference center. This place has gone down hill and the Tgiving meal should be stopped if they can't do any better. We will never be back.

    The food was good, although not always hot. Did not know they charged a 18% banquet fee on top of $49 per person for the dinner. The server took took 10-15 minutes to return my receipt for payment after picking up my credit card for payment.

    The thanksgiving buffet food was a wide variety and quite good. The hot dishes were just warm which was slightly disappointing. The service was not good. When I was seated no one came to get my drink order and it was difficult getting a drink refill and not one server came up and asked if I needed anything or to check on me. I believe they were understaffed this day. Even trying to pay the bill was a task.

    The Thanksgiving buffet was amazing! The food was all excellent, the presentation and food stations were great. The service was good but not outstanding only because they were short staffed and the wait staff had a lot of tables to service. It was pricey but it IS Thanksgiving day and all you can eat. They do offer a senior discount. This will be a tradition in our family from now on!

    The food was very good for a thanksgiving dinner. The service was very poor. One of our servers told us they had brought people in from business office etc to be servers and there was only 2 cashiers ringing up for everyone. I had to run people down to refill drinks and get more. I even had to run people down to pay the bill. Then we waited almost an hour to get our bill paid. I believe they had around 1000 people for Thanksgiving. Thank you

    Would definitely not recommend the Thanksgiving buffet at Meadows. Food was extremely bland, service was non-existent. Biggest surprise was the $190 bill for the three of us - which they had added a 26% tip onto. Run away from this restaurant.

    The crab legs would have been much better warm instead of on ice, but they were still good. All the other items we tried were delicious. Prime rib, peel and eat shrimp were delicious too.

    Crab legs were served cold on ice. It should get better they said the steamer was down they said it will be fixed .The melted butter needs to be changed there is better tasting butter. They said it would take about two weeks to get the steamer fixed. Would have been better with sea scallops.

    I’m sure food will definitely improve in time since I was there for the First night of The Seafood Buffet. Crab legs were not good on ice, and the Prime Rib was raw.

    They have started serving the seafood cold to "keep it fresher" it was very fresh before served steamed they just don't want you eating as much. The price also increased as the food has gotten worse. Who wants cold shelled shrimp and iced crab legs? Not me. I used to come every Friday for the seafood but I believe for my entire family this was the last time

    Way too expensive! Snow crab legs must be steamed, not cold! Won’t return

    Before covid, we would visit the restaurant at least 2 times a month. We sure did miss the Crablegs during that time. But our visit last Friday night on the 1st night back of crab, we were extremely disappointed. You placed the crablegs on ice. I couldn't hardly hold them they were so cold, made my hands extremely cold, plus the water running off of them made a really big mess. I'd much rather had steamed crablegs. If u'll change that back to steamed, we'll come back. Jeff
