“Its a 'So what"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

It is convenient if you are staying at Mineral's Resort. The food takes a long time to prepare and the employees stand around and make you feel as if its a bother when you walk in.
Download the menu first to check out prices. We thought a little high but not horrible. Calamari was excellent and so was the Cheese Beer Fondue.
Just try it for appetizers to judge it.
They never asked us for drink refills and that immediately turns us off.
Will only return if no other dining option comes up within our group while on property.

“Breakfast Buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

We ate here only for the breakfast buffet...it was really good. The omelets station guy (wish I got his name) deserves all the pay. He was awesome! He made the best omelets and went above and beyond by running to the kitchen for swiss cheese which the station didn't have, then running to get oatmeal which the kitchen had but was not available in the buffet. The service was slow considering it was not even crowded. The manager came to see if everything was OK but when we told him what we needed he did nothing to get it.

“Not good”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Food was undercooked and service was very slow. Waited almost 2 hours just to be served, ended up going to Burger king down the road. Oh, and no the Manager did not compensate, just apologized and handed us the full bill.

“Huge helpings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Had a supposedly light lunch, food was good but very large platefuls. Staff pleasant but a little harassed only seemed to one waitress for whole restaurant with about 6 tables of 3 or more and that was as soon as it opened.

“Do not eat here.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

The only bad part of our visit to Minerals. Requested three wines before they found one they actually had in house. Then the Prosecco that came out, it was warm. No apologies, nothing. Then the beet salad was very underdone. It only got worse from there. There were four of us. One meal came out. Then 20 minutes later, two more came out. Both were cooked absolutely wrong. The fourth meal was another 20 minutes after those two.

The server evidently dropped one, forgot to order the other two. Then remembered to put in the third, but still omitted ordering the fourth.

The whole thing was laughable. We were sitting on the deck with three other tables, occupied with folks who were as upset about their experience as we were ours.

Awful!
