Wasnt happy with our monday night sitting . The one meat was chicken and they where the smallest chickens you could eat no baked vegetables only potatoes didn't get asked if we wanted drinks 40$ a head way over priced .
Wouldn't bother going again . 2 out of 10
From the 8 of us who went out for dinner.
A big let down from previous visits. No ambience. Not a smile or acknowledgement from any but one staff member (Jorg) and buffet was over priced for tired food on offer. Think maybe it’s become poor cousin to newly opened refurbishment?
Good service and food, we were just a bit disappointed that there was only chicken for the roast meat.
Everything else was good and the food we ate was nice. Dessert and the chocolate fountain was the best.
Dined with son and 3 young grandchildren and was a pleasant experience for all. Good choice of buffet food which was nice and hot. Desserts were excellent and children enjoyed helping themselves. Staff courteous. Fairly expensive, but I guess you get what you pay for.
Food a bit bland, not a lot of variety like there used to be
The service we received was outstanding. Could not have got better!
The meat from the carvery was quite dry and chewy, hint to chef, roasts require slow cooking on a low heat, not blasted in an oven quickly. Also the steamed veggies were very under cooked, the cauliflower was too raw to cut. Basically it appeared that the food was cooked at speed rather than for enjoyable eating. On a positive note, the desserts were beautiful.
Only 2 roast meats available (turkey and beef), the turkey was dry and tough, used to be lamb, pork, beef etc. Prawns were whole had head and tail on (used to be peeled) by the time i peeled the prawn it was tasteless. Noboby advised where to get drinks from just sat us at a table and didn't say anything about how the buffett works. The porterhouse was tough. I did hear that the price is going up to over $60 per head in September I hope the menu changes to get value for money if this happens.
Unfortunately the mains were pretty bland apart from a curry you had on for Sunday night. The desserts are always the favorites, lemon tarts being fabulous.
The pasta, steak, fish and roast meats were below part in terms of flavor, being dry and also lack of quantity even at 6:20ish.
It has been a long time between visits,
last time the selection was 2nd to none, .. service both times excellent!!
I was disappointed with range of food.. nothing I was excited about , all every day food.
Maybe this was my fault in choosing the wrong restaurant.. and maybe I will look into the others you have. Thank you
Amazing tasting food, beautifully presented, staff very friendly, good value for money, lots of variety. Would highly recommend A++++
The variety of food was quite limited and what was served wasn't appealing at all. I ended up only having some pumpkin soup and coleslaw. Need more vegetarian options that aren't steamed veges or salads!
Good no frills family friendly option. I took my five year old here and she loved the lollies and the chocolate fountain. Not a lot of vegetarian options.
The advertisement doesnt match the food selection offered
Serve Seafood would be great 👍 it’s the only difference between country club and Hobart. 😊
My party of four were seated in an excellent spot that was close to others but still far away for privacy.
There was a wide variety of foods available - perfect for the picky eater in my party.
A bit disappointed that we were not told when we were checking in at 8pm that food stopped at 9pm.
First time visit. Desserts were a hit. Some vegetables were a bit hard for my liking.
Great service, great food, excellent value. A great place to dine prior to a show - or anytime really!
I have dined at this restaurant many times due to value for money, beautiful food and fantastic customer service. The restaurant was very busy but the food as always was delicious with a well stocked buffet and a wide selection of options.
Not much for allergic people. Veggies quite hard, not much variety, only lamb and beef.
Almost all options were gluten free.
The over all experience was great
The food was great & was a great experience. The staff was quite rude & made us feel a bit dumb. Love to feel welcomed and comfortable in a restaurant and sadly didn’t feel this.
Buffet is great my friends and I love to go there a lot. The last time I went wasn’t particularly great. The guy at the front counter was nice but told us he didn’t have any tables and that one wouldn’t be available for at least 2 hours. I then went online and booked a table for straight away to which he said that I shouldn’t of been able to do that as they were full and that I wouldn’t be able to keep my now booked table. We then had to wait for over an hour for him to find us a table even though we now had a booking. He was nice enough but we weren’t compensated for having to wait for so long after booking a table through the appropriate channels and unlike my other usually very enjoyable experiences at the buffet.
I was at wrestpoint buffet lunch with my wife and we had a nice time together. The food was great & the view perfect. The ambience was serene while the staff were all friendly, respectful & responsive. We'll definitely go to wrestpoint buffet again.
As a long time supporter of the Buffet, the food presentation and variety remains outstanding value.
From the ease of making a reservation on line to the greeting from the staff on arrival, a pleasant experience.
I continually recomend to family and friends to experience the Buffet & Coffee Shop for casual dining or special occasions.
Meat was over cooked poor choice of food for the cost deserts looked less an than good
Not bad very accommodating maybe some more food options or variety would be nice as it’s usually always the same things on offer when I visit
overall was good value for money as usual although the roast meats were a bit disappointing and some pieces were chewy and other pieces were a bit washed out,but overall no other complaints.
Excellent value for money. Great selection of a variety of tasty foods. The staff were friendly and happy to assist. Would definitely return to this restaurant.
We always dine at the Coffee Shop for buffet but the quality has went down hill. Except for the Roast Pork and the other menu options for mains is just terrible, the Sweet and Sour Pork is nothing but an insult to Asian cuisine. Dessert is always good as usual but I highly recommend to up the standard of the main dishes.
We always enjoy the buffet at the Coffee Shop. It is good value for money, and a nice evening out. The food is always good, tasty, well-presented and plentiful, & the staff are welcoming, helpful & efficient.
We got there for the second sitting Friday night which starts at 8
There was hardly any food left. The roast meat was dry.
Great food selection and quality. The service was friendly and I really enjoyed my lunch. I will be returning again.
Ideal place to dine before a show. Good choice of mains and desserts. Friendly welcoming staff.
I like to attend this restaurant for celebratory occasions. On the 7/3, was an anniversary lunch with my wife. Normally, the food is of a good to high standard and we have a good time. However this time the food was poorly presented and to be quite honest looked like warmed up from the day before. The squid bites ? where temped and the ONLY fish dish present, the peppered beef looked average and tasted the same, the roasted veg did not fair much better and the salad bar looked very unappetising. I hope the next time I visit the menu is up to your usual standard along with the quality. Why I go to the Buffet& Coffee Shop as it is above a "pub" meal but less formal than a full restaurant'
The fruit & veg I noted were all really good to eat.Meat is always tender , though I don't eat red meat my husband enjoyed his. On the 2 occasions I had the crumbed fish , I wasn't impressed with that. Don't think that was prepared in house. Frozen. I would never buy or eat. When the turkey was on the carvery , it also tasted dry & possibly of frozen origin. The casserole dishes are always nice & I love the different salads. The salad bar would be the main reason we eat at the Buffet. To top it all off u have local ciders. Well done for that.
Was a bit disappointing with the whole experience the food was nice and plenty to choose from, when we asked the person carving the meat if there was any crackle he was very abrupt and rude didn't appreciate being spoken to in that manner thought it was quite a reasonable question. The staff that checked us in and took us to our table were nice although we were left to wonder about our drinks Didn't realize we had to go up to get them ourselves which wasn't a problem but we didn't know that is what we had to do.
Excellent as always:-) The food is always delicious. We had a good table near the window. The staff are exceptional. If I have to search for an issue it would be that I had to pay adult price for two teenage girls aged 13 and 14, who are not big eaters. Overall very enjoyable
We paid $34.50 for an adult ticket for their buffet. The food was terrible. Especially the salad section. The roast meats were quite nice but the roast vegetables had been warming in a tray for too long. Couldn't eat them. The only good thing about the buffet was the desert bar which you could tell the were ordered from a catering business. I would rather have dined in at the Riverview Snacks Café'. If you like really average food, dine here, otherwise dine somewhere else.
There didnt seem to be as many meat choices as previously and the salads were not to my tsste. However, we really came for the desert bar and it did not disapoint. Perfect mini sized cakes and deserts, plus ice cream and chocolate fountain, delicious
