It was the usual fare but it was all well done. Sausages were not all dried out. There was a ham carving station which was quite good. A chef was making custom omelets and Belgium waffles. I have high standards for coffee and low exceptions; but for a mass made drip coffee it was decent. They did offer a breakfast... More

Stopped in for the breakfast buffet on a very quiet weekday morning in an "off-season." Food was the standard fare for a breakfast buffet. Very good coffee, and I particulary liked the fresh fruit choices, a fresh-made waffle, sausage links that weren't all dried out. Otherwise, it was so-so, and I didn't feel it was worth the total $18.51 plus... More

breakfast buffet has so many selections and is always well maintained. A chef will make you a fresh omlet or waffle with numerous fresh fruit toppings to choose from!

Food was ok, lacked flavor however. Had to make reservations, but it was not busy. Price to value was ok with the selection. Price to quality was disappointing. Convenient location at the resort. But inside the dinner area was really cold and the food got cold quickly. Wait staff was nice but not attentative. Desert selection was large and kids... More

Two of us decided to have the holiday buffet while staying at Oglebay. We made a reservation as it seemed best to ensure getting a table based on others reviews. The buffet had a nice selection of salads with chilled asparagus and rolls. The only complaint I had is that we weren't sure which salads were dressed and which were... More

If you are going to Oglebay, you should know that the Resort really caters to golfers. With that said, the breakfast buffets are incredible. There were more dishes offered than I can recall, and some were quite unique. You would not have to worry about getting hungry on the course. The dinner buffet was ok. You may be better off... More

The carving station served some great turkey and prime rib but would have liked to have had some more selections when it came to salad and sides.
