Fancy buffet dining inside Great Wolf Lodge at The Loose Moose Cottage

I have, to be honest with you, I am not a big fan of buffets. Especially the franchise restaurants you go to like Golden Corral and Ryan’s, yeah not a fan of those. Most of the time the food is bland, and taste like it all came out of a can. What I am a fan of, though, is buffets at little country restaurants. The quality is better and the place is usually cleaner. Now on a recent overnight stay at Great Wolf Lodge (Click link for that post) in Concord, NC, we ate at a buffet restaurant. This is the review of The Loose Moose Cottage in Concord, NC.

Although it is still a commercialized restaurant, it is different than your Ryan’s and Golden Corrals.

The Loose Moose CottageThe Loose Moose Cottage is a buffet restaurant located inside Great Wolf Lodge. Although it is still a commercialized restaurant, it is different than your Ryan’s and Golden Corrals. The food is much better here at The Loose Moose Cottage. They serve a better quality of food also. The Loose Moose Cottage serves Breakfast and dinner. What makes it especially nice is the convenience of it. Since it is located within Great Wolf Lodge, you just walk over and eat. It is really that simple.

One of the best things that I had here was the baked ham.

The food was really good here. The only thing I really did not like on this occasion was the chocolate cake. It was pretty dry, almost like it had been sitting out for a while. One of the best things that I had here was the baked ham. It was to die for. Several people in my group also commented on it too. As stated above, the food seems to be a better quality here, that also means a higher price. I am not sure if the price was higher because of the convenience factor or not. This could also be the case.

Great Wolf Lodge can seem like a money pit while staying here. They have everything to entice your kids to want to spend money on. Once they get you in the door they have so many things to do and spend money on. I am sure there are other options as far as restaurants go that are close by. The food may be just as good as The Loose Moose Cottage but by the time you leave you could have just stayed in the house and enjoyed a world class buffet.

Story Time at Great Wolf Lodge

A fun family atmosphere at Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, NC

Right before Christmas this past year we moved out of our home and into a temporary place to stay. We are a little cramped for room and since the kids have plenty of toys we thought it would be nice to tell the grandparents to get them something other than toys. We had this great idea to take them to Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, NC.

All this is geared towards kids.

Now, Great Wolf Lodge is a family friendly resort that has an indoor water park.
The indoor water park is the main draw for the place.
They also have two restaurants, a grill, a pizza place, ice cream shop, Dunkin Donuts, mini bowling alley, arcade, spa, and much more. All this is geared towards kids. There are a few located around the US but the one that is closest to us is in Concord, NC.

 

There is so much to do to keep you busy while here but be careful, it can be a money trap.

This ended up being an awesome present for the kids. This was our second time
coming here and we have had a blast both times. My parents are the ones who gave the present to our kids and also gave each one of the kid’s gifts certificates to Build A Bear. There is so much to do to keep you busy while here but be careful, it can be a money trap. A few money saving tips would be to book your stay at least three months in advance. Another tip would be to stay during the week. This will also give you a cheaper rate, but it will also be less crowded.
