On Dec.15 my group had lunch at the Hotel Roanoke Regency Room. I had really looked forward to holiday dining in this historical place, but I was so disappointed. The food selections in the hot buffet were terrible!!! It looked as though the staff combined leftovers and put fancy names on them to make you think they were offering delicious dishes. I should have put my empty plate down and saved the $26 I paid for absolutely horrible food. My comment to the Chef-just prepare real food like turkey, dressing, ham, augraten potatoes, baked apples, salmon, spoonbread, green beans.

The Christmas buffet was very good. Service was excellent, food quite varied and very good, seating comfortable and uncrowned and the atmosphere most pleasant.while they said seating on the hour we were not rushed and sat, finishing our bottle on champagne, after the dishes had been removed.

Make sure you reserve early!

A review about breakfast during the Christmas season.

My wife and I have made The Hotel Roanoke part of our Christmas and anniversary tradition for over 30 years. For whatever reason this weekend was busier than many at Christmas, but the Regency Room morning staff handled the pressure with much grace and composure. Simply put from the smoked salmon, the fantastic omelettes, the sticky buns, the unique bacon and fantastic jam we were just great.

Thank Steve S

Every once in a while I'll splurge and take my 2 family members whose birthdays are in December somewhere elegant. Although pricey, the Sunday lunch buffet has so many dishes that there is something for everyone to eat. The service was excellent; as soon as your plate was empty, there was someone there to remove it.
