Go early because lunch buffet is popular and people go hungry. Would recommend the salads from the menu...pear salad with grilled chicken nicely presented and a very nice change, as... More

Visited this place about a year ago and was not impressed with either the food or the service but both have improved since then. Six of us had the buffet meal there this past Sunday and the food and service were both much improved to the point that I would recommend anybody to try it at least once. The buffet... More

Stayed at the hotel for two days and ate at the restaurant. Breakfast was nothing special the usual buffet. Supper was buffet as well. We found the food is over cooked. The peppercorn chicken was cooked correctly but the skin was not crispy but soggy. Prime rib was tough. Food altogether very bland.
