    It was a wonderful Mother’s Day brunch in a beautiful setting - the food was outstanding- there was some confusion with the tip which was frustrating but overall an excellent experience

    The food (variety, taste, presentation, temperature, etc.) was amazing! The servers and waiters were outstanding! The ambiance (ocean view) was spectacular. It was expensive but well worth it! We will definitely dine here again!

    Beautiful location with everything you could eat for a buffet. But drinks were extra and one mimosa was $11 with no refills! For a $90 buffet you would expect that they were included! If an extra charge had to be made then at least they should be bottomless. Overall a lovely Easter brunch though with spectacular view

    For NYE this was pretty disappointing. Too bad. We had a great breakfast at riva and dinner at 3030 ocean . But this was the saddest NYE dinner or any dinner or meal in general. Dark. No ambiance. Staff was clearly temp /hired that night . Barely hear the solo guitarist playing inside.

    It's a buffet and for a party of three, they tack on a 20% tip. DESERTS: Zero chocolate. No ice cream option. SERVER: Wonderful, Went out of her way to find a chocolate desert ENTREES: Fish [MahiMahi] very good. Chicken: dry. Chicken fingers: Wonderful. Seafood: Weak rice to seafood ratio. Mash potatoes: good. Did not try the veggies. SOUP: Only 1 option and sweet potatoes are not for me. Wife said it was good SALADS: Very good: 2 greens choices. Enough extras: carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc CARVING STATION: Turkey: Did not try. Prime Beef: Tough TOTAL VALUE: Terrible! Bill: $230: 3 buffets, tax and their auto 20% tip. Night Before: Ruths Chris Steakhouse. Same 3 people: $260. Great meals. Would go again. Night After: 3030 Ocean, also at the Marriott Harbor Beach Hotel. Same 3 people. Total bill: $220, including my giving 20+% tip. Great meals. Would return.

    Based on how this dinner was advertised at Riva Restaurant, I was upset to find our table to be in a brightly lit, HUGE open ballroom. Nothing remotely special about a $79/person Thanksgiving dinner. In fact, I wish we had booked a dinner off resort. Terrible experience, atrociously over-priced and a big disappointment. Felt like PRICE GAUGING. Marriott brand should be ashamed.

    We opted to celebrate our Thanksgiving dinner at the Marriott as the online menu sounded amazing and offered many of our favorite dishes such as crab legs, prime rib, turkey with all of the holiday traditional sides; mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes and rolls, salad, cheese and meats. The atmosphere was that of a conference setting, the prime rib was over cooked, the crab claws were not pre cut nor did they have the proper utensils to break them open. The desserts were either frozen or stale. The turkey and sides were delicious. Our servers were Edwina and Gary who made the mediocre dinner a pleasant time. For the price we had higher expectations.

    My husband and I had the most wonderful Thanksgiving dinner here. The food was absolutely the best and the choices and presentations were incredible. The server assigned to our table, Carolina, was the most attentive, gracious individual and added greatly to our great experience. Thank you Marriott Harbor Beach and Spa for this wonderful experience.

    I love your usual buffet which was not available because of COVID. This family style meal was mediocre. There did not seem to be enough servers. The ambience is always nice being outside by the water. Hopefully next year we will be able to go back to the buffet.

    The vegetables were overcooked. The salad bar was very sad. There were no other vegan options. The meats looks overcooked. The tables were too close together, and it was very noisy. No Christmas atmosphere. The food at this hotel is way below Marriott standard which is a shame because the location is awesome.
