Title: Ice, ice baby??? I think not. Robert Van Winkle won't be showing up any time soon to this resort
The view is great outside but this is a horrible place to get married if you want good service... or things like.... ice. The bartenders withheld ice like it was gold, it was like pulling teeth to try to get a cold drink no matter how many times you asked for more ice. You had to ask for cups of ice and a drink separately and they still only put 2 baby ice cubes in the glass of ice you received. Everyone drank warm drinks all night, with glasses hot out of the dishwasher... it was the worst. I love warm beer, mmm. The cheapskate who ran the place didn't even have a cooler behind the bar to keep the drinks cold, nor did he have AC, it was a B.O. sweat-fest in the middle of summer on the dance floor.
On top of the joke of a bartending service, the meals took so so soooooo long to receive a 1 course meal plus salad. The servers were serving 2 people at a time and taking at least 5 minutes or more in between every 2 people that they served so no one ate at the same time, it was easily less than 100 people at the wedding so there was no excuse. What a joke. The simple 1 course meal took until 10 pm to finish serving when it started at 7pm. Speeches didn't contribute at all to this delay, this was strictly dinner serving time. On top of this, the serving ladies were all unfriendly and they looked like they were one night away from taking a razor blade and .........you know the rest. They promised to bring a pitcher of ice water to the table on 3... I repeat 3 separate occasions and they never did.
So in conclusion, if you're looking for the worst service possible, I highly, highly recommend this place! But if you are one of those weird types who is crazy enough to like good service, then run for your life.
