Thank you to the team at the Rockwood Grill for providing a wonderful birthday evening for my wife's special day. The food was delicious. We ordered from the menu, although the buffet looked amazing. I had the salmon and my wife had sea bass. We...More

What an amazing setting. Everyone else thought it was too hot so went indoors. Our group from NZ couldn't pass up the opportunity to experience it all. Loved the waiter, the serivce, the meal. No gripes from us. Memories were made.

We had a breakfast buffet, which was delicious. Nitrate free bacon, so good. Also had dinner there and had the Specialty burger which was also delicious. Let the server know how you want your burger cooked because it can be a little pink.

We sat outside in shaded courtyard overlooking resort lake. Really nice atmosphere with ducks swimming next to us, good food, recommend the calamari entree, scallops and the porterhouse steaks as mains.

We ate breakfast at the Rockwood Grill and it was underwhelming. This is located inside the JW Marriott Hotel which is another story in itself. The breakfast buffet is $30 per person. The omelet was good but little else was remarkable. The hotel and its...More
