Suggested to my cousin and his wife come in from mid-Ohio to celebrate their 38th wedding anniversary at the resort. On 08/11/2012 met them there with six other family members to have dinner. This was a bad decision! The choice of menu selection was very limited. Now I understand that most all resorts serve meals a la carte, but for heaven's sake, no baked potatoes! What should have been a very enjoyable experience turned out to be a true disappointment and overall bad experience. After a lengthy wait, dinner was served. To all our dismay, eight meals were came to the table and nearly all were tepid temperature at best. So, now it's time to call the manager who after some delay comes to the table and asks what was the problem. Once informed of the situation, she says, "Don't worry, I'll take care of it and bring out new meals. I'll take care of it." So, after nearly a forty minute wait, the meals were once again served. Sadly, the attempt at another serving was not much better the second time. Her amends for our having the problem and having to wait once again was to serve our dinner party dessert at no charge. Unbelievably, the dessert was almost as bad as the meal. One such example: strawberry shortcake should be moist and flavorful. What was served was stale and tough to cut with a fork. All things considered, having to endure this poor food quality and the manager's meager attempt to remedy a problem left our family's party mood totally deflated. Needless to say, there won't be a next time for this place! P.S. Our waitress was excellent and did everything she could to help.
