We figured we'd eat here because our kids wanted to swim and it'd be a quick lil dinner. Wrong! As soon as we walked in, a waiter was approaching us but a waitress stopped him and asked if he'd get a tables drink order instead of seating us because they'd been there for a long time! Are you kidding me?! After being seated, we waited over an hr for food. I guess they could tell by my expression that I was agitated. The waitress walked by our table and said, "Your food will be out soon, y'all." No refill, apology, etc. This restaurant is CRAP! Next time, I'll drive somewhere.

Breakfast was quite good for a buffet. Dinners, however were average. Only offering that was very good was the fried chicken. Wish I had had that! I had a piece of sirloin steak that was very chewy. The next night, we both had the Thursday night special which was Roast Turkey and dressing. Dressing was quite good, but the turkey was actually thin sliced turkey lunch meat with gravy over it. It was OK.

We were concerned because this restaurant is attached to the Clarion that it might be a mediocre hotel restaurant, but it wasn't. The waitress was friendly and attentive and brought drinks and then our meals quickly. Hubby had the fried chicken and reported it was juicy. I saw the juice dribbling down his chin, so I know he was telling the truth. I ordered the pan-fried catfish, and it was excellent: juicy and flavorful. Our sides were the cheesy grits, which were more grits than cheesy, and kernel corn. We're used to cheese being mixed in with the grits, and this was just cheese shavings on top of the grits, but the grits were still good. My catfish portion was so large I couldn't finish it, but I really wanted to keep eating it because it was so good. No dessert. No room. We would eat here again if we're at the hotel.
