Just learned of their lunch salad buffet. Price very reasonable and great quality. Lots of great selection, like ham, hearts of palm, figs, and artichokes. Service was very attentive.

Very nice meat in this restaurant. You will get as much as you want ! Don't hesitate to ask for something special or the way you want your meat to be cocked. The bananas are also great Worth a visit

Response from Jetsetde | Reviewed this property |
Yes they do... it was currently $22. There is a parking lot very close.. used by mostly Macy's customers. And several other lots ranging from $5 for a half hour early bird to $20 for the day.
Two questions: 1. Is your restaurant kid friendly? 2. My son has a severe shell fish, fish and nut allergy. Can he be accommodated?

I would call the restaurant. There is an giant buffet and with a great variety of dishes, many of which had nuts and some fish elements. If the allergy is severe you may not want this environment.
