Got to the buffet about an hour before closing and food looked like it had been sitting there several hours. Was disappointed, glad we had 2 for 1 coupon. Prime rib and salad was best to me

Locals get half off with club card. The crepe station is my favorite station in the buffet. You get your money worth here. We bring our friends from out of town here for dinner.

Service depends on who you get. There is an older lady, she is great. Sesame balls in the Asian sections are yummy, and so are... forgot what they are called, like spikes filled with cheese, also in the Asian section.

I don't know why so many people are giving this place 5-star, or even above 3-star ratings. I would say it was mediocre, but I would be lying to myself...it's way less than mediocre. They offer buffet basics: Mexican, Italian, Asian (along with a Pho station), and American cuisine including a meat carving station and salad bar. However, the foods... More

We first went to this buffet because they told us we would have a two for one which is true as we are rewards club seniors.

the food they serve depends on the time and day you go. breakfast is great. they have an omlet and crepe bar where they will make it as you order it. on the weekends they have a seafood buffet. I don't like seafood but my husband does so I eat the prime rib. its fabulous.

The service is good and staff do a good job. The food is ok but selections could be a bit more varied. Desserts are limited. The room is looking a bit tired like the rest of the property. If you can get it at half price as a local or with a coupon it is ok but at full price... More
