The breakfast Buffett, was just average. Nothing fancy and overpriced. Dinner was about the same. Expensive and not impressed. The service is ok, but could be better.

Lava's offers breakfast menu items as well as a well laid out breakfast buffet for hotel guests and visitors. Good service and tasty items make this an easy choice for those needing an early breakfast option.
