Bus loads come from California and descend on this Mediocre buffet. Recent price increase still makes it an inexpensive buffet. Wilted salads, rock hard rolls, stale desserts, greasy meats and tough little lobsters seem to be the main attraction. Cheap and overall a poor double...More

Went to the prime rib buffet. The prime rib was quite good, and the salad fixings were fresh, but nothing else was worth the money. The desserts tasted stale, pizza was not even warm, and dinner rolls were not fresh either.

We had the lobster buffet . . . yuuch! The "real buffet room" was being re-done and we were in an awful banquet hall instead. I don't believe they had another buffet the same evening. . . . just the lobster mess.
