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.

It would be nice if there were the option of chicken or turkey “bacon” and chicken or turkey sausages not just pork.

They baked beans were very yummy!

Food was very good but difficult to justify paying $120 for 2 adults with one drink each, a child under 6 and a child under 2. I get that it's a resort but that's a little much.

I’m not usually a buffet fan but this one exceeded my expectations. The food was quite good and the service was excellent. The prime rib was cooked perfectly and the selection was expansive. The kids loved dipping the fresh strawberries in chocolate for dessert. We liked it so much that the kids convinced me to come back for the breakfast buffet. Loved that you could make reservations online.

The restaurant tries hard but seems tired. The food seems store/box bought. Prime rib was well done - no medium rare or rare. Cheese/appetizers were pretty basic. Staff tries hard but seem tired. Overall for the buffet price it wasn't anything special. I wouldn't go there again.

The serving staff were so wonderful! They made the experience that much better. Always offered ideas of things to do while staying, checked in often and were so friendly!!! My husband and I commented at each meal how great they were. The food was delicious, a lot of variety. Cajun Corn Chowder was incredible!

The Restaurant was ok. Def. could use an update. Lot's of staff, which was good. Love that the kids are allowed to eat there as well, I think that's great. The one thing I did notice though was no pasta dish and no fish. For a 40.00 buffet, I would have expected a salmon entree and certainly a lasagne or some other kind of pasta. (3 cheese totillini doesn't count).

We did not have the best experience. It was Famiy Day Weekend and clearly the dining room was having a hard time keeping up with turning table over and the buffet was very untidy. Many empty dishes at 7:00 pm.
Our bad for making a reservation on a Saturday night of this weekend. Disappointed in the bright lighting and the incredible noise level.

Food was mediocre and poor selection given the price of almost $40 per person. Obviously there is additional charge because you’re in the resort but the selection and quality of food was terrible.

On a normal night, I believe the service would be alright, at least I am optimistic about it. I think servers were overwhelmed for Valentines Day. We received our amuse bouche at the same time as our appetizers. One order of meat was undercooked slightly, other overcooked a bit. Waiter did not check on our table after we received our order. Coffee/tea was on the set menu but was never offered. Some servers wandered about obviously looking for the table their order was to go to. All in all, I might try it again on a night that wasn't a feature.

For a buffet it is over-priced for what you get. There were 5 or 6 options for the dinner, not much of a buffet selection, food was cold and we had a reservation. They shouldn’t call it a buffet it should just be called serve yourself our limited options. Definitely not worth the price of $40/person!

Excellent experience for our large family. The restaurant wasn’t loud and it wasn’t too quiet for young children. All items were labeled very well and we were grateful for all the Halal selection. We also enjoyed brunch the next day.

The food was excellent, for the items we chose. The desserts were amazing!
The waitress was pleasant, just not around much, so our plates didn't get cleared by the time we went up and back.
We would totally eat here again.

we were given a $75 voucher at the resort as our room wasn't ready on time - we decided to make a reservation at this place - we made a reso for 6:30 but couldn't get a reso until 7:30 - the place was virtually empty at 7 pm. The buffet was disappointing - pasta was overcooked and obviously had been sitting for some time - the beef was well done. A poor food selection considering the price of over $37 a person!!

Have been to this restaurant many times. Out experience on New Year’s Day was very disappointing! Food selection was poor. Prime rib was cold and tough.
Desert table didn’t have good selection.
Definitely not as good as it has been in pervious visits!

My wife, our little 15 month old and myself stayed at Deerhurst for a few days and ate at the Eclipse restaurant on the final evening of our stay.
We opted for the Buffet and weren't disappointed. There were many options to choose from and all very nice dishes as well. We were all impressed and we enjoyed our mean + the service and the environment.
It was quite pricey but understandable given the options that we had.

Been to better breakfast buffets. Value for the price vs choices is not there. I was disappointed

We have been coming up to Deerhurst for thanksgiving dinner for several years. I have to say the food has really declined.
There were a few salads to start. The main course and accompaniments were really disappointing. There were very few veggies and no stuffing at all!
Don’t know if we’d come back again. I think there’s better places for the money!

Beautiful location for families. Excellent food with the exception of the turkey for Thanksgiving. It was awful. Rest of the food was delicious. Who would choose that type of turkey meat at Thanksgiving?
