Entering this establishment is a trip back in time, as the entrance is an old gold mining shaft complete with artifacts. Food is prepared on several outside grills as you wait with your styrofoam plate in hand. Very crowded (tour buses stop here), as the...More

We were part of a tour group that had supper here one night. The food was very good, but for a buffet, there weren't a lot of options to choose from. We had hoped to eat indoors, but by the time we got our food,...More

It's all you can eat buffet style place. Although there are non meat items it really isn't worth it for just the salad bar, roasted potatoes, and biscuits. For meat eaters it's great: salmon, crab legs, cod, and prime rib.
