    I've heard about W456 for a long time & was not disappointed! We enjoyed a nice Sunday buffet brunch on Fathers Day. Everything was seasoned to perfection...no salt & pepper needed. The owner and chef came by and introduced themselves. I would definitely recommend.

    We were a party of 4 and this was a buffet. Three of us got sick. We attribute it to the salad and dressing which was not kept at a cool temperature. The fourth person did not eat salad and did not get sick. We have been going to W456 ever since they opened and have enjoyed dinners and lunches. This was our first time to go to Sunday brunch buffet. Very disappointing.

    Made reservations for a birthday lunch. When we arrived the table was set up for an elegant birthday party lunch for two. Never expected this special touch. The food was perfect. A menu full of special items to choose from. We will be back for dinner soon. Thanks for the birthday memories!

    Food was not up to previous experience here. Beef short ribs were over cooked. Wedge salad didn’t have the yummy bacon nor same dressing. Service was good but young waiter couldn’t open the bottle of wine. Our party of 4 was seated at a 6-top so it lacked the intimacy for conversation.

    The food was excellent - tried the scallops, country fried chicken (huge portion) and short ribs. shared salads and apps. We were not rushed and service was good until the end - a VERY large party was seated by us so we got a bit forgotten. found it a little warm in the back room and thought the extra charge to split an entre was a bit tacky. Great wine choices. Its the only upscale choice at Cedar Creek so will be give it another try when we are feeling fancy.

    The staff was so wonderful! We had a dinner reservation for my friend’s bachelorette party. We had a hard time finding a fancier place to eat near our lake house, and I’m so glad I picked W456! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was wonderful. We hadn’t told them ahead of time that it was for a bachelorette, but once they found out, they brought out themed napkins, table decor, and more to make our bride feel special! It was so appreciated.

    The buffet was the only option as we were not offered a menu. The dining area was cramped and hot, my seat kept getting bumped, we did not get our drink orders taken until 15 minutes after seating, the table wobbled, there were flies in the dining area, and food was average. To top it off the buffet shut down around 2. Why take reservations until 1:45 if you are going to shut it down at 2? $168 for 3 is highly disappointing for this buffet experience.

    Mother’s Day flies were terrible. Literally touched all our food. They brought the spinner machines to help. Still had flies on our food. Told the front & she asked “what do you want me to do” will not come back again. Disgusting.

    Our second visit last night to this jewel in a desert oasis. Excellent wedge salads, burned BBQ tips and pork chop bone-in were perfectly prepared and of high quality. A bottle of Pinot Noir was a great complement. Our only distraction, hence the lower star ratings, was an endless of line of people there for a special gathering of some type, starting at 6pm, a bit after our own 5:30 reservation. The line of people was endless and ruined any privacy or restaurant ambience that W456 normally will offer. Service suffered a bit, with all hands on deck trying to take care of the crowd plus the rest of us simultaneously. Overall, the crowd control was pretty good, but the logistics of holding such meetings isn't a strength in that setting.
