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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
