Eclipse Restaurant - Deerhurst Resort
We found the buffet rather disappointing for the cost...$37.95 pp. The main courses were just ok nothing really special with limited choices . The salad bar was ok. Desserts were rather disappointing. Nothing homemade really and out of certain things by the time we were ready to partake. Would we eat there again? No. Better food in the Maple Leaf pub.
The buffet was absolutely delicious. That night a fish soup was available in a large pot. I had to have seconds it was so good.
Keep up the good quality service..,
An enjoyable evening dinner! Excellent service and tasty food. However for the high price, I feel there should have been a few more food choices.
The pastry chef here is brilliant!
Everything was fresh, delicious and perfectly cooked
Too expensive for options given. Not one pasta dish. Udon Noodles were ok. Should have pizza and healthy options for kids besides Mac and cheese, nuggets and hamburger sliders. Spaghetti with tomato sauce or lasagna or simpler soup besides cream of mushroom. A nice chicken noodle with real veggies and chicken in it or butternut squash or minestrone. Very few vegetables. Just raw carrots celery and a broccoli dish with cheese on it, terrible. Ice cream bar only had ice cream in a styrofoam bowl. Hospitals give those to kids when they get their tonisils out, and u should have a trash for lids etc. Garbage stayed on the table that had sprinkles and choc Sauce. Not a very good fondue either. Couldn’t have been real chocolate. More like syrup from a store shelf.
Waitress was the best. Sooo nice and very attentive. Staff make all the difference but way too expensive for a dinner buffet that lacked options. Hey
We had dinner and breakfast at Eclipse . The roast beef was chewy- my husband couldn't eat his, but the fish and chicken breasts were good at dinner. I did like the potatoes in cheese sauce as well. One criticism- there was no one waiting to slice roast beef, and while my husband waited for someone to arrive-the food already on his plate started to cool down.The selection at breakfast was very good, and service is excellent. We do enjoy looking out at lake, and would return for the breakfast.
Very poor service. When we asked for a menu we were told we could only eat from the buffet because it would take too long to get something off the menu. Buffet was very limited, desserts were similar to what you would find at Walmart (mini cupcakes, two bite brownies, store bought pie, etc). Our server seemed to forget about us and didn’t even visit to refill our drinks. When we finally found her, we asked for our bill and when we still hadn’t received it over 20 mins later, we went to the main desk in the restaurant to request it again. Another server finally tracked down our original server and had her print out our bill. Very poor service, overpriced at almost $40 a person for the buffet, mediocre food at best, and no compensation for horrible customer service. Will never be back and would not recommend to anyone!
|No gluten free main course
Staff was helpful but this a problem for me
Salads pretty good selection
Waitress was terrific
Kids ages 10 & 12 enjoyed the buffet
Fabulous breakfast buffet selection, fresh and ready, with made-to-order items also available. Friendly, attentive staff.
Good Buffett at a reasonable price.Good ambiance ,helpful staff.Excellent choice of dishes.No one will leave hungry and you will end up paying for old fashioned value.
Great food! Always fresh! Orange juice was amazing! We sat outside so it make our breakfast even better!! Totally worth the price.
Very nice and relaxed atmosphere. The appropriate amount of food and selection to please everyone, including the younger children/teens. Do need more hot vegetables though.
Excellent! we came for a birthday the food was good the waitress was good she refilled our water glasses a lot we really liked it, it was good. perhaps put a garbage can by the ice cream station so you can throw out your ice cream lid.
Sunday Brunch is incredible!!!
Well worth the money.
Excellent service...cheerful waitress.
Excellent variety of food on the Sunday Brunch.
Highly recommend the Sunday Brunch!!!
Ambiance, view both great. Food wasn't bad but not what we expected definitely not worth the price. Not much of a variety we were expecting something more then what is was.
Service was exceptional! Food was great too. Would definitely come back again.
It was a buffet and the food was warm, dried out and by the time we went up to the buffet, not much left in the serving bowls. The food was not presented well and one would expect it to be better then you make at home. The service was extremely slow which was surprising since it was not busy. We had to go and look for our server in order to pay the bill. The tables next to us were not cleaned once the customers left. The staff just kept walking by it. Eventually someone showed up and took the dirty dishes away.
Fairly limited buffet - not great value for the cost.
Food was mediocre. Just chicken thighs and pork ribs plus a few side dishes. risotto, broccoli and something else. Not very inspired for $37.95,. Was expecting roast beef and maybe some shrimp. No show. three main salads, nice display of deli meats and cheese and the desserts were delicious. Would we come again to the buffet? Not in the near future. Would prefer the Compass Restaurant, if we dome back.
I was very disappointed. The dinner buffet was terrible, especially for the price. I wouldnt even pay half the price it costs. The breakfast buffet was better. As for dinner, the other restaurants on the resort are much better. I will not return.
Yes, because the service and overall experience was impeccable but the food selection lacked variety and did not taste up to the standards of everything else.
The service is very good. The quality of the food for the price is moderately good. It is not the fault of the restaurant but there are too many rude guests.
Over priced. Small amount of options and terribly dry meat. Needs more staff or at least train the staff that do work there.
We’ve been here many times over the years but this time we were disappointed. There was no enough variety of food and the quality was lacking.
We went to have a nice meal. Food was mediaorcure at best. Waiter was great. However there were screaming kids everywhere that were allowed to run everywhere. Restaurant could have done better job controlling them.
Beautiful room! Always amazing food with so much variety! Staff are very friendly and professional.
The buffet selection was VERY limited and what they did serve was either dry (chicken), cold (prime rib), or overcooked (tilapia). Salad bar was fresh but again, very limited. I filled up on the salad bar and anti-pasta section. Not worth the price at all! My poor review does not reflect the performance of the staff who were very friendly and accommodating.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday brunch. Great selection of delicious food. Wonderful menu with lots of seafood. Love it
Very enjoyable evening, would and have recommended eclipse restaurant . Will be back again
Unfortunately we opted for the buffet rather than menu which could have made the difference. But the food was very mediocre at best. We didn’t even go back to the buffet to try more & left both original plates unfinished. With the cost of staying at the resort being on the more expensive side & the buffet at almost $30 each, although not fine dining as we hoped. This was still very lacking on all levels. We hope that for other guests going forward, they up there quality much more. It has great potential to be so.
Staff are friendly and accommodating. We will come back again on Summer with our children. Hoping that check in time would be earlier than 4:00 pm so that visitors can explore the resort. My wife and I enjoyed our stay and this is the place (gazebo at the lake) where i have fulfilled my promise of a love for a lifetime, a church wedding for my wife and formal marriage proposal which took 25 years to materialize. All happened during our stay at the Resort. Thank you for this wonderful experience.
Quiet relaxing brunch with my mother
Can't really comment on the food since we actually walked out before getting any service. My husband and I sat for 20 minutes ( no exaggeration ) while servers leaned up against furniture and cleared tables. Not so much as an introduction or offer for beverage. The Host that sat us was very pleasant. I have been before and the food has been good so we will give it another go. Servers need to step up their game a little.
I was stunned to get a bill for $70.00+ for brunch for two. I understood it was 18.99 a person fot hot buffet. For this reason I would cation people who are considering going. The food was good but $35.00 a person for brunch is excessive.
The buffet didn't have a ton of overwhelming options. The food that was presented was fresh and tasty. Our server didn't interrupt our meal too many times, which was nice. Sometimes you can get an "eager" server.
The atmosphere was nice, as we were seated next to the window overlooking the grounds.
I would recommend Eclipse to families and couples.
A wonderful dining experience overlooking the muskoka scene.
We continue to go to this restaurant because of the service and the wonderful views and because it is a very relaxing place to be. We had the buffet at diner time. The food however was not the greatest. I have been to much better buffets. My husband and I also found the price to be a bit high at $47.99.
Kids selections wasn’t great and for the overall price, I expected a much higher quality of food and much more choice. Wouldn’t recommend.
