We recently visited the JC site for a quick evening dinner while shopping. First thing we see that Sandra Heston will be waiting on us. She was amazing as always.

The prim rib was good but it had a lot of fat tonight. My wife did not like much but the desert bar. Rolls were good but i don't want to pay this and just eat bread.Not enough waitresses for the crowd. It is hard to get into the restaurant were it is located.

This GC seems to be on a downward slide. Poor selection. Dried out entrees under the heat lamps far too long. Go elsewhere.

A large buffet featured a variety of food, and one could eat as healthy as one wished. The fish had a little seasoning, the salad greens were fresh, and the desserts tempting.
