Our family was in town for a funeral on Thanksgiving and we chose this buffet for dinner. What a great choice! No wait for our table, our waitress was amazing, the gentleman at the door couldn't have been nicer and even remembered my name as we left the restaurant. The Thanksgiving buffet was great. Everyone really raved about the turkey... More

We had breakfast here and completely enjoyed the experience. We returned with high hopes for the Thanksgiving buffet. No No No. Complete disappointment and dissatisfaction. Awful tasting food... dry turkey and pork, fatty beef. Absolutely awful green bean casserole. The only food edible on the buffet was mushroom ravioli.. even the desserts were lacking taste. The staff was accommodating and... More

We stayed at Wilderness, so we decided on the buffet for dinner for the first night. It was just awful. In terms of selection, there was a very small salad bar - lettuce, cheese, ham, bacon - a few fish, a bunch of fried stuff, 2 soups, and dessert. The fried stuff was ... weird. Broasted chicken, popcorn shrimp were... More

We enjoyed our Starbucks drinks and stayed to eat breakfast (they serve the same menu here as the restaurant). It was nice to be able to order a smaller breakfast from the side items, because the meals were huge (as we saw from tables next to us ... the ham steak was more than 12" wide). Excellent service and delicious... More

Most menu items can be modified gluten free. It was nice, as a celiac, to have somewhere to eat while on vacation. Husband and daughter loved the cheese curds.

Oh my goodness, I want to eat there every day. The coffee is great, the buffet gives you so many options and definitely doesn't cheap out. You had your choice of waffles, pancakes, french toast, bacon, home fries, hashbrown patties, fruit, biscuits and gravy, donuts, etc. My only complaint was that they didn't openly advertise that only kids under 8...

I should mention that we were here on a Monday and Tuesday morning in September which may not reflect how busy the restaurant might usually be. I had their breakfast sandwich which consisted of egg, cheese and choice of meat on an english muffin or bagel along with a nice size serving of fruit. The price was very reasonable. The... More

We ate here four times and we were not disappointed. The staff is great and the manager was so very nice and helpful when we needed to freeze my husband's cold pack for traveling. Thank you for great food and the help you gave us. We will be back and I will tell everyone who goes to the wilderness to... More

We ate breakfast here on our recent stay at the Wilderness Resort. We had the breakfast buffet, which was very good. There is a wide variety of food to choose from - scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, waffles, French toast, breakfast potatoes, donuts & pastries, plus a made-to-order omelet station. The cost is $15 per adult, but kids under 10... More

A yearly tradition for our family. It is kinda pricey if you aren't that hungry, but the food quality is amazing. Bonus, kids eat free! I believe there is an age limit so you may wanna check into it! Our fam loved the copious amounts of fresh bacon!!!
