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.
its better to get the buffet at breakfast. everything on the menu is in the buffet. we made the mistake of ordering off the menu
i would go back
Adequate. Service was fantastic. Our waitress was attentive and friendly.
You need to have more options for gluten-free celiac people especially at the buffet have a special area that's designated for gluten-free people thank you besides that all my friends liked it there I have no allergies have a great day
service was extremely slow and the restaurant wasn't that busy - food was just ok
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.
We went for Valentines day and we loved it. The waitress was friendly, the food was delicious we couldn't have made a better choice.
Incredible burger and fries! Nice view of the surrounding forest, too.
We went here for breakfast while at Foxwoods. We had the breakfast buffet. Great price, excellent service, and lots of food choices at a reasonable price! Will definitely be back on our next trip!
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.
Food was better than expected, but the service was so slow it did not matter. Our Waiter tried but he had no help. Getting seated even with reservations was a chore.
We had two toddlers and our server was very patient and attentive. Thank you!
Great breakfast food was fresh and service wS great also nicely priced
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.
The view and the service were impeccable. The buffet staff were wonderful
My favorite place since I was young. Peaceful feel and perfect place for a quick getaway.
Food was good, buffet food was just Luke warm. However, the value for a buffet was a excellent.
Usually good for breakfast. But the pancakes are bad at the buffet, although overall a good deal. Ordered the steak and cheese tonight, the worst I ever had.
Service was terrible! Our food was cold, we waited near 40 minutes for rolls and around 30 minutes to get our check after asking for it early due to another engagement!
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.
Service was a bit slow arrive at 6:45 food did not arrive until 7:25 had a show at 8:00 at Grand theatre which was about 15 min away walking
The food and service were good once we were seated. Long line to wait for a table. Less of a wait because we had a reservation.
Service was great , meal was as expected good food , they seem to be understaffed long line at door with empty tables in the restaurant glad we had a reservation and skipped the line .
Had the fish and chips was very dissapointed the fish was thickly coated and cold....
my daughter wanted to go there and I said ok because she likes your breakfast buffet.. but the lunch was not good
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.
Prime Rib surprisingly good. Good portions and quality. Place to go for good food if don't mind mediocre setting. Service a bit slow.
They need more help. Waited very long. Servers were harried. Food ok not great.
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.
I have been going to the Veranda Cafe for years. The food and service are good, and the menu has a wide variety of reasonably priced choices.
It was not good at all
The menu looked great but the good is like an after thought
There are much Better choices at foxwoods
Did the breakfast buffet. Fresh omelet was VG, the bacon OK. The coffee was cold, and the pastrys were stale. Price was moderate. The maitrde was very nice, but the waitresses were not very attenative and average at best.
breakfast was great. the food was served quickly and it was very good.
Everyone was very welcoming and accommodating. The food was exceptional for a buffet. The French toast was one of the best I've eved tasted. We would definitely eat here again.
Breakfast buffet was excellent
Greeted by manager, friendly staff, great variety breakfast buffet
Have eaten here many times and always satisfied with food and service. Like that you can play Keno while dining!
Decent food during breakfast buffet. Omelette station was excellent. Service was great. Quite a value, although the ambiance was drab.
Food was cold. Chicken was as if it was from a boxed dinner. Prime rib was dry. Server was less than attentive. Stay away from here!
