Had special Christmas buffet with my husband. Very good food, great selection, tons of desserts. They did run out of a lot of dishes and we had to wait to have them refilled - a few dishes we just gave up on. But would definitely do again - worth what we spent.

Not having to cook on Christmas was a gift in itself....enjoying good food and family was priceless.

The Thanksgiving dinner was nice but very expensive (for our family of 10 it was $600 with $111 of it toward a tip--and 7 of those 10 were under 10 years of age) it really just felt like a buffet. In the morning we returned to Ponds for the breakfast buffet. We were asked to wait 45 minutes then when we were finally seated the buffet line was empty (no food). The omelet was very nice. The staff did not apologies and did not offer a discount. Again for 7 people they charge us the full price. Very disappointed in the food availability at the resort.

We attended the Thanksgiving Buffet for the second consecutive year. Same menu, but last year's experience seemed better. I tried the prime rib, and the first trip through the line yielded about 75% fat and gristle. The sweet potato casserole offering was very watery. I tried the turkey breast without gravy and it wasn't the least bit moist. The attendant seemed almost apologetic when we witnessed the meat crumble as he attempted to slice it. While I understand there are pitfalls to eating buffet style, I feel, at $54 a person, the offerings should rate higher than Golden Corral. I must say the appetizer selections were superior and the wait staff very attentive.

Adding the word steakhouse at the end of a restaurant name does not make it so.
I had to return a fillet that the waitress said I should get well done so it was not bloody. It was so raw I had to send it back to get even more well done.
The hostess had to leave her station to actually fill water and and put out silverware.
The line to get in was ridiculously long due to this.
I will never eat there again.

The filet mignon was the bet steak I've had so far in Alaska, I'll be coming back just for that steak with the bernaise sauce

The food was good, but I asked for no onions on my pizza and it came with onions. The waitress was back twice at our table and saw me picking the. Off the pizza, but never said a word. She also never asked if we wanted dessert. Just put the bill down and left. Way overpriced.

We got there, seated quick, quick service, almost felt like, hurry up and get out. When i reserved, the menu had one set of prices, when i saw the menu when i was there, it was alot higher in price. Got the food, tasted like frozen food from the grocery store. Got the bill and she made a mistake on the prices, she refused to fix the bill. Just paid it and left unhappy with the whole pond experience.

They bragged about the salad bar, but it was nothing special and was an additional $12. There were few choices for all the hype. We each ordered a different entree. All were delicious. The pork chop and crab legs and halibut were excellent. Considering the prices, the meals lacked accompanying sides and presentation.
