Service was good, location is nice, scenic. But the food was not hot and only average in taste. Overall the visit was a disappointment. Will not return.

Food and service were great. I had to go for seconds and never normally eat out. The breakfast chef makes great omelets.

When traveling on business, my go-to is often in the comfort food realm. And when solo, often in the hotel. Cheeseburger with your choice of cheese, choice of fries or salad. glass of red wine. It's a good, solid option here, burger prepared as requested. Salad is more than just iceberg, though not remarkable.

My wife and I decided to walk down to the lake one morning last week and have breakfast at the Waterside Restaurant at the Sheraton Hotel. We were promptly seated and offered either the breakfast buffet or the open menu. We choose the menu and ordered a couple coffees. Our waitress was very attentive and returned with our drinks and...

I was here for a conference. They served a good sandwich wrap. However the commendable comments are for an excellent potato salad and an excellent macaroni salad. The servers were attentive and the luncheon was timely and well done.

I enjoyed a very nice little crabcake this morning with decent service (but very dirty cups) But after the concert we came in and had the worst and rudest server we ever had. She's lucky I was in such a good mood because she was really asking for trouble. I have no idea what I did to make her so... More

Tired after a day of flying, we decided to eat at the hotel. My experience with Sheratons is that food there is pretty good. Not this one. I love shrimp and grits, so seeing it on the menu, my order was a no-brainer. Bad decision. The dish was a bowl of grits (which, in all fairness, were quite good) with... More

Wow! This is Columbia's best kept secret. I've lived here for over a decade and just only tried the food here due to a family visit. The New Zealand rack of lamb is generously portioned and absolutely finger-licking good. But it's such a nice place that I tried to use the utensils :D. Another at the table had the crab... More

I enjoyed their chili on one day, then a great bowl of tomato soup and salad another day. Everything was nicely prepared, presented and tasty. On top of that the nice view of the lake made for a great setting.
