Didn’t really need a reservation when we got there. It was pretty open. Didn’t get to see the view of the Connecticut woods. Breakfast bar wasn’t what I expected.

Arrived for Sunday morning buffet about 5 min before reservation. Long line, looked into dining room and at least half the tables were empty. Found out they were short staffed. We were seated about 5-10 min after 12 (only 1 other group was seated before us in that time)

Despite being short staffed & long line of people, most of the staff causally walked around serving and cleaning tables like it was a dead weekday afternoon. The only people showing any hustle were the managers who were seating guests. However they didnt seem to have any control over the situation, nor their servers nonchalant attitude.

We, like many of the guests waiting, were there for a buffet- something that required little table interaction. After sitting down a busboy came over with water and to take our drink order. We waited a few more minutes with no sign of a waitress. We went up to get food and it wasn’t till we got back that she came over. We only saw her once more when she dropped off the check. No drink refills till then.

Overall the food was ok, kitchen was doing a good job keeping up. I would go back but had i not made a reservation and had i not been seated right away i would have walked away. It was not worth and id have no intention of standing around for 30+ min waiting for a table for a buffet.

Veranda Cafe is always a great go to place when we arrive at Foxwoods close to dinner. Has never disappointed us. So we booked breakfast last night (which we also enjoyed in the past) but when we arrived this morning we were informed the regular menu would not be available as the overnight snow storm had made travel dangerous and they were working with a limited staff so they were doing buffet. Since hubby has Celiac we thought that may not be a good idea. Haven’t done a buffet since his diagnosis. Long story short, they prepared eggs for him in a separate pan and brought him a toasted GF roll. From the kitchen. The bacon was fine for a side and the potatoes were also gluten free(roasted). He had a dish of fruit as well and was more than satisfied. What we want to emphasize is the service of the limited staff. They worked together helping at all tables so diners had their coffee, tea, juice and water cups/glasses filled and dirty dishes removed from the table efficiently. Kudos to restaurant manager on duty this morning, Dane V, for leading his team by example. He also was working floor - busing tables, filling water glasses, pouring coffee: in general the same tasks his staff were doing. All the time having eyes on the tables and checking with guests if they needed anything. Bringing extra creamers, sugar/Splenda, butter to tables to help the servers. So thank you to entire staff working this morning and to Dane. (Just realized the time-it’s now the day after the storm.☺️)

They seemed to be understaffed. Lots of confusion seating guests with reservations, VIP cards and those who were simply waiting in line...which was long. The food was good, lots of choices. The staff was friendly. The room is nice, especially if you sit by a window to enjoy the view during the day. We'll go back, when it's not so crowded.

Bottom line - don't bother. The food was not very tasty, and the first "attempt" at the roasted chicken salad was completely disastrous. The waitress told us "that's the way it comes out". So we pressed the issue, and a revised salad that actually had more ingredients than just lettuce and some overcooked dry chicken returned. Her comment to us? "Now that looks much better". Duh. We should have figure out how bad it was going to be when we got there and saw virtually every table empty.

Breakfast buffet is terrible. Made to order omlettes and fruit are the only good things to eat. Premade Eggs Benedict was salty. French toast and pancakes were cold and inedible. Pastry was out of a box.

Had the buffett one morning and it was terrible. Ordered pancakes and Belgium waffle off the menu the next morning and they were great.

Don't get the buffett.

Even though there was confusion with lines and irate customers because of this. Their doing not the restaurants fault that they didn't comprehend it's Saturday night no reservations you may have to wait!!!The hostess and staff were still very professional. We didn't wait at all thanks to our reservations on Opentable. Once seated service was quick and the food was excellent.

A casual American comfort food restaurant among the many in the Foxwoods Casino complex, you do not take a gamble when dining at Verandah Cafe. Wide variety of dinner choices and a very popular Prime Rib [ HUGE ] special with all the trimmings for under $25.00 [ includes soup/salad and dessert.] Take a break from the gaming tables and reserve a dining table at Verandah Cafe . You are always a winner every meal.
