Ups and Downs

We’ve been to this one off and on over the years, seen it on good days and not-so good. Last time was pretty much ok. As always, the parking was sufficient – most GC’s are laid out pretty good for that. It wasn’t a busy time, so check in line and seating were fast. The waitress was attentive, checking back to see if we needed anything – the buffet was a little skimpy on some things, hadn’t been totally restocked – maybe waiting for busier time, but it was OK. We prefer the dinner (after 4) bars with more “stuff” but we were early and needed to get back to Lakeland before “dark.”


The buffet had the fairly standard GC items left from lunch (before the 4pm changeover) – we were there about 2:30 –
Husband had the fried chicken (always have to “fight” for legs!) he did get one – they said more would be out, but never did. He tried various vegetables – mac n cheese (is that a vegetable?), green beans – potatoes with a cheesy looking sauce. Then he concentrated on the dessert bar! Tried several slices of pies, and things. He said it was all “OK” …

I made a pretty good size salad from the buffet bar – lettuce fairly fresh (not floppy) – and had something that looked like baked ham, there was no sign and I couldn’t get anyones attention to ask—so I took a chance. There were some French fries in the pan, kind of cold, but that seems to happen when you get them out from under hot light. I had a selection of vegetables, corn/green beans/rice – I do that when there’s not much else of interest. It was all “OK”.

Like I said, sometimes good, sometimes not – we go back from time to time.

They serve the best steak!

At first we are hesitant to eat because its seems like an ordinary restaurant but we are surprised that they serve the best steak! my experience matches with the saying "Dont judge the book by its cover"
