Last Sunday, May 6th, I brought my wife and I to the Eola Hills Sunday Brunch.

Much to our chagrin, the brunch does not live up to its billing. The "cellarroom" where you dine, is a banquet hall stuffed with cheap tables and plastic chairs. We were given a quick lesson in their style of "exibition" style buffet, by the Maitre'd. Basically you have to grab a plate and jockey for position around some tables where the food is being prepared. And all of their food preparers look and act like they just got fired from the local Subway.

The food itself is marginal. The omletes are passible, and the omlete maker actually did a good job. Outside of that, however, all the meats were dried out. The pan fried oysters were soggy, some of the steamed clams hadnt opened, the waffles were dry, and the fake syrup was squirted out of a bottle of "Smuckers". I almost was never able to sit and eat with my wife, becasue all the food takes dramatically different times to recieve.

The beverages were all over the place...Juices were in one corner, water in another, coffee in another and the two free glasses of wine in yet another spot. That brings me to another problem. The traffic layout was horrendous. The tables were cheap and far too close together. I was bumped into several times while I ate. Also, whats with the plastic .50 cent, Big Lots, patio chairs? The whole place had the feel of a bad wedding reception, complete with bad food and terrible service.

And let me tell you; when it was time to check out the dessert table, I was sorely dissapointed. The desserts were horrible. They looked like they had survived an ice age. The flan was runny with the consistency of cottage cheese, and a flavor somewhat like tapioca pudding meets burnt marshmallow, The cheesecake was dry and spongy and had the distinct flavor of freezer.

The only redeeming thing was the wine. The Pinot Gris I enjoyed was excellent. The Merlot was very good if not a bit young and tannic.
