After a long day on the road, we checked into the Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort. To save time, we thought we'd eat on the property. It said, "Reservations Recommended." The parking lot was full from 2 pairs going on.... a wedding and a birthday, both with DJ's. Boom, boom, boom, boom. The whole place could hear the base of... More

My experience at the River Room was atrocious. The service was nonexistent and the food was awful--about the quality of hospital cafeteria or military canteen food. Stay away! 1. Service: the service was horrendous. I tried calling at least 6-8 times before my arrival on a busy ski weekend to make a reservation; the phone invariably went to voicemail. Ultimately,... More

The food was spectacular and the service was great. They made sure that we had everything we wanted. The steak was delicious and dessert was really good! The bartender, Gary is the best !!!! He makes the best frozen drinks.

We visit the River Room often. The food and beers are the same as the Gem & Keystone and Shawneecraft brewery, both on the same property. Lovely views of the golf course. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. The brunch buffet is definitely worth a try.

Food way well seasoned and portion were just right. Breakfast was more than expected. Just would have loved to have had turkey products. The granola blend was exceptional! Don't leave without having some in your oatmeal. Omelets to order are the best!

First of all we love the Shawnee Inn, where this restaurant is located. The food is excellent here; my wife had the lobster ravioli and still raves about it. What concerns me is the service and the noise. We were seated and our table wasn't cleaned, there was still water or something on the table. The hostess noticed it and... More

The lunch service was the same. it didn't appear to be the wait staff, but rather the kitchen? The... More

We came in for dinner. The asparagus app was small and thin with just a heavy crumbly batter on them. The quesadilla was good and the fries were amazing. The buffalo chicken wrap had little chicken with a bunch of celery on it and the Ruben not sure if there was even any sauerkraut on it. Also food portions were... More

Always love to have the breakfast buffet. Unfortunately, as of late, the omelets were being made with an excessive amount of butter and I was not impressed with the omelet maker's cleanliness and listening skills as to what I want. The butter thing has really turned me off as I always felt like I was getting a healthy breakfast.

By far the worst flat bread pizza and vegetable lasagna i have ever had. For the price which we have to pay - the quantity was so less as well. The time to serve was painfully long. It is annoying to wait for a long time and eat crappy food - pay a high bill and then go back to... More
