The price is comparable to any higher end buffet. It is a tourist town so you have to expect that. We found the Breakfast buffet to be great. Enough selection and food was replaced often enough that nothing was dried out. My husband raved about...More

Had gone there several times over the years for both the brunch buffet and dinner buffet, so we thought we'd give it another try. The word "brunch" in this case is highly deceiving. It is 90% breakfast food. The non-breakfast items are carved ham, turkey...More

We discovered the Great Karoo a couple of years ago. At that time there weren't many reviews or pictures. We decided to give it a try and we have made it a point to stop there for breakfast each time we are in The Dells....More

Brunch with my family and friends while staying at the Kahlahari. I was pleasantly surprised with the numerous food choices and the quality. Only downside was the omelette station is a bit clunky and unorganized.

At $23 each, the dinner buffet was overpriced and underwhelming. We ate dinner there at 5:30 when they opened, and multiple dishes (the soup, corn, and several pasta dishes) were only lukewarm, which made me concerned about their safety. Maybe they warmed up as they...More

I knew better! The kids were begging to eat at the buffet and I should have looked for a Golden Corral or something away from the resort. Buffets at these types of places are always overpriced for mediocre food and this was no different. Over...More

This was a fabulous breakfast buffet. A bit pricey, and when I signed up for the "discount vouchers" on the online package I thought it still seemed like a lot to pay. But when we saw the buffet, we were quite pleased with the breathtaking...More

This restaurant offers one of the best breakfast buffets Ive ever been too! Everything was fresh and nicely organized - I especially enjoyed the pineapple-banana smoothie, apple crepe , and kalahari scramble (eggs). The prices are steep, but the food is wonderful!

This is a great option for breakfast before you hit the Kalahari water parks. It's pricey, but you get what you pay for - excellent food, a great variety of items, fantastic coffee and warm, friendly service. It was a wonderful way to start our...More

I thought it was a little pricey, but I loved the new selection of breakfast options. There were many colorful creations, and something for everyone. I liked how they had a lot of dishes with vegetables, and I loved the breakfast fajitas & burritos. I...More

It is expensive per person. I think its is around $19.99. Kids are cheaper yes, but the bill is expensive. Great food and service! This year we didn't have a waitress that was an exchange student and she was way better.
