What a special day! It's Christmas and we're dining at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort for Christmas dinner. Coincidentally, it is also our 100th post. What better way to celebrate than at the lovely Waterfront Hilton right here in our home town!
The Hilton puts on a truly magnificent Christmas Dinner Buffet. The presentation is fabulous, the food fresh and well prepared and the service and ambiance are five stars all the way. The food choices seemed almost overwhelming. In addition to the items pictured above, choices included Crab Cakes, Grilled Swordfish, Leg of Lamb, Apricot Glazed Pork Loin, and Stuffed Chicken Breast. Also available were a variety of potato and vegetable dishes ( our favorite was the Brussels Sprouts with Pearl Onions).
The ladies thoroughly enjoyed the Turkey, carved to order and accompanied by Stuffing, Gravy and Cranberry Sauce. They also liked the Stuffed Chicken Breast. We all enjoyed the Prime Rib, carved to order and accompanied by Au Jus and Horseradish. The Grilled Swordfish was excellent- tender and moist. The Crab Cakes could have used a little more Crab (and less filler). The Lamb was a little tough, but the Pork was divine. I spent a lot of time at the Seafood Station. I particularly liked the King Crab Legs, Oysters and Sushi.
The Dessert selections were seemingly endless. The Tiramisu was a little dry, but we enjoyed the Chocolate Mini-Cupcakes, Chocolate Eclairs, Creme Brulee and Chocolate Layer Cake. I also liked the Chocolate Covered Strawberries and the Pumpkin Pie.
Today's Christmas Dinner Buffet at The Waterfront Hilton gets three thumbs up from the 3 Tubby Tummys!
