Just ok😕😕

Pricey for the food that you get...they had hot dogs and hamburg sliders on the buffet....not what I would consider for a $30.00 buffet.

Service was great, but the food was terrible. Not a lot of selection at the salad bar or even "Asian" foods. We went during their Memphis BBQ night and still, nothing fantastic as compared to the holidays when they have turkey and all of the fixings. Brisket was full of fat, chicken drumsticks were way too salty... This place is... More

Always busy, a bit predictable but a good buffet and with seniors discounts over 55 and casino card discounts it is a great deal. The servers are always friendly, always packed as well.

Even thought for the summer they have the grilled BBQ pork ribs, roasted BBQ chicken and BBQ beef brisket, they were very dry and spicy. Not cooked with the intention so everyone can eat it. The pulled pork was a nice addition but again very spicy.And to have to go out on patio for it, not a very good idea.... More

Too many asian dishes (we are in CANADA folks, not China). Line-ups extremely long - expect to wait over an hour on a weekend. Very few vegetarian options which does not offer good value-for-money. Food was cafeteria style.

They had a nice variety of items. Fresh fruit juice, made to order omelets, waffles, ethnic items, even chocolate covered raisins for your oatmeal.

Long lines and they don't usually take reservations but you can never go wrong with the dinner buffet and the breakfast buffet ain't bad either. I always leave feeling soooooo full and hating myself for over-indulging. I mean...realllly over-indulging.
