    Sorry but we won't be back. We haven't been to the T-Day buffet in several years and were excited to come back. We were in for a shock. Having people wait in line for 45 minutes, some of whom find it difficult and even painful to do so, while you clear out the last crowd and make ready for the next one begs the question: who thought this would be a good way to run a buffet? I've been to several buffets in my lifetime but never one like this. In addition, we anticipated sitting in the dining room and enjoying the lights and were surprised and (yet again) disappointed when we found ourselves in an auditorium. We drove over an hour to get there and because of this, I doubt we'll be giving you another chance. Stonewall Jackson Resort will be getting our business from now on.

    Loved everything about this restaurant! We were there for the first night of the Festival of Lights, and we decided to have the holiday dinner buffet. Everything on the buffet was fantastic, and there was a nice selection of delicious desserts. An added bonus was being seated at a table by the window, where we were able to watch the sun set and see everything light up, along with a brief fireworks display. We really enjoyed everything!

    It was ok but just ok. No bread served at table. Food was as described. Food was good but no real wow factor. High prices and mediocre food and services. We had requested a window seat and when we got there no window seat available even though we had reservations. Slightly disappointing.

    Outstanding food. Excellent service. Lovely atmosphere. Scallops, Caesar salad and mushroom side was so very tasty. The special pork chops with Bourbon apple sauce were very good. We will definitely return when we’re back in the area. Highly recommend for an enjoyable dinner.

    Their new chef is so much better than 2 years ago! Four of us went for my son's 25th birthday, uncrowded even on a Saturday night, with excellent service. A few good vegetarian options, especially the mushrooms side dish and veg main and my son loved the scallops and steak. The skillet cookies were amazing desserts!

    Pros: 1) The food was pretty good. 2) The service was very attentive. 3) Friendly wait staff. 4) Caesar salad was very good. Cons: 1) Very limited menu. 2) Menu substitutions not allowed. 3) My personal opinion: Waygu beef not authentic. Comments: when we ordered our food, we were informed by the waitress that the chef would not permit food substitutions. This is not acceptable! I used to own a restaurant and the menu was our suggestion of what to order. You are in business to please your customer. We will not return unless this changes. Good luck with that policy!

    When the power went out and fire alarms went on, there was clearly not a plan. The manager did not introduce himself but came to the table and said our entrees would not be able to be served . We had no where to go, There was not a generator and they place they suggested we go was closed.

    Last night's storm with tornado warning which caused a power outage and fire alarm was a very difficult event and Im sorry it inconvenienced your evening. We do have a plan in place for such events so I am sorry we were not able to spend the adequate time with your table to explain the situation but a power outage is unfortunately beyond our control. I hope you come again to try our restaurant. I will be happy to discuss any details further.

    Exceeded all expectations! Food quality and presentation was top notch, and service (Carlos) was impeccable! Seafood special was Sea Bass w/black rice and Brussels, as good, if not better, than any Bass ever experienced before. Filet was cooked perfectly as ordered and the side order of bread tray was fresh and still warm. And the lobster potstickers are a must to try! And floor mgr, Will, will always have an answer of “YES” to any of your requests!

    We have always enjoyed this restaurant, but this was a bad experience, mostly because of the server. She brought the wrong item for my wife, brought wine bottle without the glasses, left the bottle for us to open, and just took exceptionally long overall.

    We enjoy the dining room. The food was good (though the unusual vegetable presentation was less cooked than I like). Our service was excellent, and the view is so beautiful. The menu is not extensive, though the food is quite good. Prices seem to have risen quite a lot since we last visited, though not especially out of line with quality restaurants.
