    When we arrived we were asked if we had a reservation making it seem like it was needed....it wasn't. The restaurant only had a few tables sat. The host tried to sit us at a dirty table. We had an 8pm reservation with a promise of a window seat. The open tables by the window hadn't been bussed in a while so we had to stand and wait for the table to be cleaned. The food was ok, the drinks were great. We were told the resort is under new general management so I am hopeful that some things will change. The resort and restaurants have potential. They are lacking in the customer service department.

    No AC 2.5 hrs for dinner with only 3 tables seated. Double charged for dinner. I would never go back to anything at Oglebay. Only good thing was wait staff.

    Good food though a bit rich. I would like to see some healthier options for vegetarians or gluten free diets. Need more whole foods, rice, hummus, fruits & veggies, tofu, vegie patties and the like as options for healthy delicious dining! Ambience can't be beat and the service is exemplary!!

    We had a 1pm reservation and were seated immediately. Service was friendly, prompt and available if needed. Food variety, availability, and preparation was all very good. Our tastes are for very flavorful, bold, and often spicy dishes. To appeal to all, flavors are there but tame. We all agreed the salmon and seafood bisque was excellent. The event is pricey at $45 per person, but a treat for Mother's Day. Walking around the lodge after lunch adds to the event, since we had never been there.

    My wife and I had a lovely dinner here. It was very quiet and not crowded. The food was on par with Altius or Molinaro’s in Pittsburgh. Definitely a diamond in the rough as far as cuisine.

    We loved the atmosphere! Service was great! But the Seafood Buffet was extremely disappointing! The only reservation time we could get was 8pm. All the food tasted old - you could tell it had been sitting out for a long time. The shrimp scampi, risotto, & salmon were over cooked. The Crab Cakes had several shell pieces in them. The Shrimp & Lobster Ravioli was mushy. The fried foods (oysters, clams, shrimp, & fish) were soggy. Even the rolls were cold & hard. However, the salad & mussels were delicious. And the desserts we tried were yummy. But overall, it’s way overpriced for the quality at $45 each. Maybe dining earlier when the food was fresh would’ve made a better experience. Note: Dining room is on 3 different levels with a few steps to each & is NOT handicap accessible.

    Dining room too cold and dark. Food taste temperature and quality disappointing for prices. Scallops over cooked. Risotto overcooked. Crabmeat fishy taste not seemed fresh. Baked potato lukewarm and undercooked. Steak overcooked. Bread tasteless.

    Atmosphere was superb! Service was wonderful! Food was hit or miss. Dessert was amazing. The cheesecake and carrot cake was to die for! As for the entrees- my friends and I agreed that some of the flavors did not seem to go together. And the crab cakes were so salty we could not eat them! Maybe personal preference. Not sure we’ll be back for the seafood buffet, but certain we’ll be back for another dining experience. Hopefully to stay at the lodge next time.

    I really love Oglebay. It’s such a beautiful refuge, and they do such a wonderful job making it that way. From the free live music to the beautiful grounds, it’s a goto for us. The staff at the restaurant is simply top notch. They seated us in a perfect location. The hostess and waitress were all smiles and very attentive. I just have to be honest that the food isn’t always the best. I realize that buffets can dry food out, so that might be the main issue. It’s a lot of money, so maybe my expectations are too high. Overall, we had a great experience and we don’t have any regrets choosing to dine here.

    Food which is usually great was sub par at best. Cold food, lack of any flavor, many basic condiments missing. Requested window seating in reservation but was seated away from the window. Overall very overpriced for what was delivered.

    The food is excellent, always professionally presented... The service is exceptional...I love the view... However, I do feel the food is overpriced and items that are ala carte could be included with the meal for the prices being charged.

    We had a 6:30 seating at which time we were told that the scallops and crab was gone and my buddy and I received the last 2 baked potatoes for the evening, almost all plates were cold and coffee was bitter. I am from the area and other two couples were not. We have been coming down for 4/5 years to a cabin. What a shame, especially for the cost, and also embarrassing.
