“Worst buffet experience!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Do yourself a favor and eat off-site or bring your own food to the resort. Whatever you do, DON'T EAT HERE! They could charge a third less than the $20 and it would still be too much. Kids eat free and that is too much. I am surprised that they put out such a low quality offering, perhaps it is the fact they have a captive audience. Who wants to get in the car when it's cold out? This terrible dining experience ruined what was all-in-all a great trip to the Wilderness Resort.

“Breakfast good,...supper awful”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

We stayed here the last 4 days..one night we decided we didn't want to leave the resort so we thought we would take advantage of the kids eat free aspect...it wasn't worth it...for 19.99 plus drink prices it was just bad food..from roast beef with gravy and mushrooms..to chicken parmigian that I have had better out of a diet microwave meal...this buffet was like something you would get in a nursing home cafeteria...for that price..to serve that...just awful...we gave it a second shot figuring there is no way they could mess up breakfast....food was much better for breakfast...good variety..breakfast sandwiches for the kids..to eggs benedict...much better selection and quality...still a little pricey for breakfast at 13.49 per person plus drinks...kids still free...but a little more worth it...

“Breakfast buffet ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

Normal hotel breakfast buffet, a little on the cold side. Nice that little kids eat free. Slow to bus dirty plates.

“Family Friendly.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

We ate dinner here 2 of our nights and had breakfast there today. We enjoyed our meal each time. Breakfast was good filled us up and our kids even got to get a picture with Monty the Moose. Only regret is we didn't considered breakfast at the WCC earlier in our visit. The prices didn't seem bad at all and appeared normal. Seemed in range when considering what it cost eating out these days. Worth a stop.
