Staff are very friendly, but service is slow. Lunch and diner prices are average, but there is a buffet service if you don't want to wait.

I scheduled a business lunch at Boxwoods based on a good experience at a banquet dinner at the Mason Inn complex. The setting for lunch was nice, in the pleasantly lit, quiet dining room of Boxwoods. But the food is not anything more than adequate....More
