I've only eaten at one other GC and it was in Alaska. That one was excellent. This one seemed a lot smaller and awkward as you are constantly dodging people.
We were a party of 5 and the only table available was in the room that had 'reserved' signs on ALL tables. Another group was in there and said 'we're not worried about sitting in here. Just take a table!' So, we did. Pretty soon, an angry waitress comes to the table and says 'This area is closed!! You couldn't find a seat out there? She's pointed to other rooms with hostility. 'Ummm, no', we meekly say. It set the tone for the entire visit as we felt we were breaking some sort of rule.
The food was bland and prime rib had no flavor except salt. Even the carrot cake tasted like a cheap mix and frosting didn't taste like cream cheese.
I don't care to visit again.

This is hands down the best buffet I have ever been to. We go often and ALL the food is expertly prepared to perfection-very rare in a food bar! Nice clean restaurant and friendly staff.

Like having meals at home with multiple choices. Plenty to enjoy and a large variety of courses. Also plenty of desserts to choose from.

Brisket was Smokey and good, steak cooked just right. Service very good. Priced well for seniors with free rolls to take home. Will go back for sure!
