The ambiance was beautiful from the first moment you step into the building. Just gorgeous décor for a brunch spot.

The food was excellent. I had a party of 7 and we were seated right away. A reservation is recommended though because it was busy.

The only small issue I had was that there was a lot of parties of 6 or more and they seemed a little short staffed that day so you had a little wait for drink orders. Everything else was Amazing will definitely be going again and telling anyone who'll listen to go and see for themselves.

I did expect a little more fruit options at the Sunday Brunch. You had walnuts
Instead of pecans for waffles. The smoke salmon was dry and the oysters were not good. The ambiance is breathtaking. A beautiful room and view. The breakfast options were good.

Unfortunately, I have food restrictions and I thought for the price there would be a better selection or someone like me but I was wrong.
The only thing I could eat was the fresh produce and an omelette. There were no gluten free cooked items. Just in case there was something I overlooked, I asked someone on the staff if they had gluten-free items and I was told no.

Unfortunately I can not refer the Odyssey because many of my friends have food restrictions as well.

We were celebrating my husband's 80th Birthday and we could not ask for a better dining environment anywhere. We enjoyed the food the service was impeccable and the ambiance was perfection. We have dined there before and we will return in the future. Thank you. Helen Pughsley

We had reservations. The tables were a little close together. I sat wedges up against a wall. Every time I needed to get up to go to the buffet, another guest at my table had to stand up so that I could get out. That was very inconvenient. The Belgian waffle was amazing. The New York on the carving station was delicious. Most of the bacon was very under cooked. There was only one server working the carving station, the omelette bar, and the waffle station. They needed more staff- Long lines. The rest of the food was average. Temperature wise it could’ve been warmer- but it’s a buffet! It’s gonna get cold. They advertise mimosas and champagne with the price- but the limited wait staff was hard to get a refill. Would I go back? Yes.

We go to the Odyssey Brunch at least once a month. This time all the food was cold. Not warm, but cold. The only thing hot were the omelettes because they were being made fresh. This trip was very disappointing. Mary Hagan

I do apologize for the poor experience. We are deeply saddened and embarrassed by the experience you encountered.

We had a very bad, upsetting, and stressful encounter with the manager by the name of Jennifer. It was our 25th anniversary and I had 27 guests invited. We had already got permission to bring a decorated cake as centerpiece and she was trying to stop us from bringing it inside. Then I was asking for a small table to put decorations and the gifts on it and even though the very nice staff were willing to bring it to us, she came and said NO. The place was more than half empty that day and she was just giving us a hard time for no good reason. We have been there several times in the past for similar occasions and never had any issues before. She made our special day miserable. Of course, our servers were wonderful and apologetic for the manager’s behavior.

Took my mom and baby sister here on a date.. it was their first time. They thoroughly enjoyed everything from the ambience and view to the cuisine and service. My mom literally called my dad and older sister to tell them I “snapped” and that they should experience for themselves (and bring her with) My sister Snapchatted the entire time which is always a good sign.. I’ll be back with the rest of my tribe for good vibes! =}

We have had great experiences at their brunch since they got a new Chef. But for some reason this past Sunday...the food was cold and there wasn't much of a selection. It was kind of "plain". You spend nearly $30 a person.

We had our wedding here last summer and received a certificate for brunch. We loved it! There were tons of options to choose from and everything was really good. The service was spectacular and everyone was so nice! We will definitely go back for brunch in the future.

My wife and I took good friends there for their 20th anniversary, it was very nice! My wife went the week before, however, the brunch was set up on the first floor providing a different view of the actual Golf Course, for our friends anniversary it was actually on the ground floor and I absolutely loved the view. The food was really good too, something for everyone, except maybe a diehard vegan!

The odyssey country club is great for a Sunday morning brunch. Unlimited champagne is included, but it seems that they are not as nice when you ask for more then two refills. The food is good with a few exceptions (carver at carving station didn't seem to know what he was doing and didn't give a choice of doneness on roast beef. )

I filed a complaint with the Odyssey. The facility and grounds were beautiful. The food bins were just about empty except for chicken. The waffle station person scrapped the pot to make our waffle. Staff reaching over you as you ate to get plates. Staff clearing tables to end the day. Staff fixing their plates and sitting at tables . Our waitress served us a drink when we first came in and didn't return until just before she brought the check to ask if we wanted another drink. Seated in the back because tables were cleaned up for the end. I refused to tip for the service. The waitress told me that the tip was not included in our tab. I told her I knew that.

This was my first time going to the odyssey country club. I found the staff to be very cordial and accommodating. A shout out to the hostess, Patricia who made my delicious omelet, to Juan and our entire wait staff. The food was fantastic and I can't wait to go back. Oh yes I almost forgot. The view of the beautiful grounds while you eat is breathtaking. Thank you odyssey country club for a job well done. Lynette Frederick
