    Spent 250.00 prepaid for two people for mothers day brunch. Food was sub par. The mimosas were made with 4.00 wycliff “champagne” we were promised live music, the entertainment was on stage a total of 5 minutes before taking a break for the remainder of our brunch: brunch was NOT at the restaurant they advertised: it was hosted in a banquet room that was nearly empty with table numbers like we were at a diner. For 250.00 we expected a LOT more for our money. Would never recommend going here for a event like this again.

    This brunch is overpriced compared to similar holiday/celebration brunches in regards to food offerings and ambiance. It was good, and the service team was very pleasant, but it was not worth $50 more per person than almost all the other brunches in the area. Now I understand why there was more availability here than anywhere else. This would be a more popular choice if overall $$$$ was reduced.

    We went to Waters Edge for Mothers Day Brunch with a party of 10. The food selection was poor. I expected much better for $120 per person.

    I thought this was an actual restaurant, especially since it was on Open Table. I made a reservation for 5. While the setting is lovely, we were basically the only people in the place. Imagine my surprise to discover that it is one small step up from a fast food restaurant. You order at the counter from a very limited menu. The food is brought out to you, which is what makes it one step up from fast food. It’s the only “restaurant” in the hotel. I would think a beautiful venue like the Hyatt could do better.

    This restaurant is located in the Hyatt Lodge, which has either valet parking or you have to park in a separate lot across from the hotel. If you have mobility issues, this could be a consideration. We picked this restaurant because it started with the letter “W”. Long story. We made reservations for breakfast on Open Table. When we got there, the staff had absolutely no idea what to do with our reservations. We thought it was a sit-down restaurant. You order breakfast from the service counter, you pick a table, and they bring the food out to you. We thought it was pricey- $60 for breakfast! Fortunately, it wasn’t crowded and we got seats right by a view of the pond. We had an omelet, French toast, a muffin, and two coffees. The food was good but nothing spectacular. The blueberry muffin was excellent though! Based on our experience, the best thing about this restaurant is the lovely setting. It must be even prettier when the flowers have bloomed and the trees have leafed out. Everything else was just okay: ambience, service, food. Would we return? Possibly, if we were ever back in the area.

    We had a very large party for Easter brunch. The manager went out of their way to make it an absolutely beautiful experience. The dining room was set up nicely with space in between for everybody to move around. There was a band playing that had lovely music to set the tone for the room. Very nice experience.

    It used to be a much more impressive spread of food. Now it is just a kind of fancy continental breakfast. I've done a bunch of their Easter Brunches before, but this one was our last. The food quality was nowhere near what it used to be AND it cost more. We couldn't leave fast enough. This used to be amazing and I would recommend it to anyone, now I hope everyone forgets that I ever recommended it.

    Went for the Prancer's PopUp. Expected it to be decorated to the max. It wasn't. Took 5 minutes to just get water. Server never came to take our drink order, after 10 minutes. They weren't that busy. Food menu was not impressive. The bartender came by and told our server would be with us shortly. Still another 5 minutes went by. We left!

    I made a reservation however when we arrived the restaurant itself was dark and we were redirected to the bar area to order. The person at the bar said he didn’t know about reservations. We sat ourselves at the only vacant table and waited. Finally we saw another guy who apologize they were crowded and only had two people working and said he would be with use as soon as he could. I even went to the hotels desk to ask questions and was told they were a separate entity. This was not what we expected after making a reservation.

    Don’t make people make reservations when there’s no one there to even check you in. Making reservation does nothing. You still have to stand in line behind people ordering at the checkout. It makes no sense. And also you should give some information about where to park because it’s super confusing.

    Water's Edge was okay since it was the only place to eat in the hotel at that time. Food was good, prices are high. Using Open Table didn't help. We made a reservation for 12 and the table was not ready when we arrived. Staff didn't seem to know anything about it.

    The restaurant was solid. Nothing revolutionary, but nothing awful either. We had artichoke dip, chicken fingers, and the burger -- all were very good. Dinner is served in the bar area not the Waters Edge restaurant. The ambiance was a little lacking for that reason. ESPN was on in the background, and the music was quite loud. The service was great, and we'd eat there again after a long day of travel. They do not offer room service but do carryout.

    The grounds and the architecture of the lodge are great! The service was great except that we were sitting outside and as the evening progressed, the temp was dropping. There are propane heaters in plain view and when we asked if they could light one up for us so we could continue to stay outside, we were told they are only used for events. It just seems strange that during the pandemic many restaurants were using them, why wouldn’t they light just one up for our table? The food was also very good and arrived quickly. The smoked old fashions I hear were good.

    I had a turkey club. Large impressive sandwich. Great fries. Asked for the bread to be toasted. It wasn’t. The turkey was the slimy processed packaged stuff instead of real sliced turkey. Why? I’ve eaten there several times because of the ambiance. The good is generally bad. After one experience people won’t come back. The place should be packed. Hyatt should do a complete food review, change and improve the menu (a lot). Then advertise the heck out of the place. I can’t imagine with good cooking you wouldn’t pack them in. I hope so. I would love to make The Waters Edge our main casual dining place.

    The rice was a little bland and the refried beans looked like they were from a can. Maybe next time they can make whole pinto beans. That would be more traditional to Mexican cuisine. The tacos were good, loved the many topping options, dessert was yummy, dj was awesome and the staff was amazing.

    We went for Mother’s Day and the quality of food was bland with a high price. The omelette chef didn’t know how to make omelettes. The French toast was rock hard and the taste of the food wasn’t anything to write home about. The only thing that was good was the prime rib. I however, if you do not like prime rib then you’re out of luck. I’ve gone to my fair share of Mother’s Day brunches and I can honestly say I won’t be going back

    The setting was very nice, and plenty of options of food. However, the food was not exceptional. The pastas were dry, the main dishes (salmon, chicken and beef) were overdone/overcooked and tough to chew. The selection of desert options limited. The live music was a nice choice for the setting, but too loud and overpowering. The staff worked very hard but seemed short-staffed. Our server wasn't able to get to our table very often. For the price, I expected more on Easter from this hotel. I recommend skipping the brunch in the future and get a good steak dinner elsewhere.

    4. Ambience 1
    A pale comparison to pre pandemic Easter Brunches here. With an increase in price, we expected the same quality holiday brunch, but we’re offered fare and atmosphere barely worth 1/3 the price. No centerpieces, no greeting at table or buffet instructions, hunted down a server for drinks multiple times, limited food offerings (compared to past years) cold overcooked entrees, frozen waffles, burned cookies, tough meats, and serving staff were complacent…. all with a 3 piece ensemble blaring with drum set (not just a piano) making conversation impossible. Very disappointed and will make other holiday arrangements next year.
