I was hoping this place could beat out the Luxor buffet in Vegas, which was disappointing. If the quality of food at Golden Corral were better, I would say it even tops this place. Not enough food, not enough variety. Dry rolls, boring salad bar - everything.

All-you-can-eat crab legs and variety of other food satisfied my family. We left with a full stomach. The crab is sweet and fresh. The staff is friendly. The guy behind the Asian bar was waving hi to everyone and seemed to enjoy his job very much with a big smile on his face.

Super nice buffet for 29.95 on Friday night. Snow crab legs are full and perfectly cooked. Shrimp are huge, deveined and split down back..also perfectly cooked. Very good prime rib. The rest of the buffet is also cooked very nicely. Friendly service. And since it's Veterans Day...I ate free. Well done!!!

W.T.F. ... it's $20 each and the food is TERRIBLE! We ate at 8pm (prime dinner time) and the food had been sitting under a heat lamp for hours. The prime rib is 80% fat... I'm not kidding or exaggerating. The food is cheap cafeteria food (pizza, Chinese chicken, old fried chicken, soups with 1/4" grease films on top they've... More

This was an anniversary for us and we always wanted to spend a night up here. Unfortunately it fell on a Monday!

Four of us ate here for champagne brunch about 11 a.m. on 9/4/2016 and the food was cold to luke warm and quite frankly was a major disappointment, with more food left on the plates after having a taste, than was actually eaten.

No surprises here. Lots of food of many cuisines. Lots of breads, deserts too. Decent salad bar. I bit pricey for dinner if you just want to eat a normal sized dinner. They were not open for breakfast buffet when we were there.
