We had reservations for the 5 course Valentines Day dinner. Got seated and was told they sold out of it. Unreal.

Food was ok, lacked flavor however. Had to make reservations, but it was not busy. Price to value was ok with the selection. Price to quality was disappointing. Convenient location at the resort. But inside the dinner area was really cold and the food got cold quickly. Wait staff was nice but not attentative. Desert selection was large and kids... More

My husband and I shared a wonderful Valentine's Weekend dinner for our 20th Wedding Anniversary complete with sparkling wine customized to our tastes when we arrived. It was a very enjoyable evening.

Two of us decided to have the holiday buffet while staying at Oglebay. We made a reservation as it seemed best to ensure getting a table based on others reviews. The buffet had a nice selection of salads with chilled asparagus and rolls. The only complaint I had is that we weren't sure which salads were dressed and which were... More

If you are going to Oglebay, you should know that the Resort really caters to golfers. With that said, the breakfast buffets are incredible. There were more dishes offered than I can recall, and some were quite unique. You would not have to worry about getting hungry on the course. The dinner buffet was ok. You may be better off... More

The carving station served some great turkey and prime rib but would have liked to have had some more selections when it came to salad and sides.

We ate here Christmas Eve as part of our stay to see the lights. For $75.00 for two people, the food was not worth it. In fact, $20.00 would have been overpriced for what we were offered at the buffet. The hard rolls, for example, could not be cut cleanly with a knife, the turkey breast (from a roll) was... More

When you visit Oglebay Resort during the holiday season for the Festival of Lights, you can get a package which includes your room at Wilson Lodge and breakfast at the Ihlenfeld Dining Room breakfast buffet the next morning. I cannot speak to their dinners or lunches, but have had the breakfast buffet once a year since 2009! I believe it's... More

We stayed in Wilson Lodge and ate dinner and breakfast here. We weren't aware they were doing a special bujffet meal during the Festival of Lights but you can also order off the menu. When they first mentioned the price ($31.95 each) I thought that was high but then she said drinks and dessert was included and after looking at... More

Our stay at Oglebay included the breakfast buffet which is very good and has just about anything you could want. Ask for a table by the window to enjoy the view while dining.
