We had the dinner buffet and breakfast buffet during our stay. Dinner was just OK for the price. Service was excellent. Breakfast included a nice assortment of food and all was good. Service was a little slower but it was very crowded.

We really enjoy the Christmas dinner buffet, the view from the dining room is beautiful. We missed the seafood pasta this year, but the mashed potatoes were yummy.

We recently ate breakfast at the Ihlenfeld which was part of our overnight say. The service was slow, the waitress seemed a bit busy rather than inattentive. Breakfast was decent, the views very nice. As I side-note, the previous evening we witnessed two separate parties...More
