This is located across from the hotel and was clean with great choices of meals. The attendants were friendly and were very eager to earn a tip,

As selection is limited and only two counters there's always a line up. Service for coffee is not good either. Always looking for wait staff to ask for more coffee or at... More

We went on a Sunday so they had a great spread of food. Plus a BBQ with about ten different meats. I have to say I was very surprised.

I typically don't like going to buffets because I feel the quality of the food suffers in order to mass produce. This buffet has a decent salad bar if you don't have to worry about cross contamination from other foods. I don't understand why restaurants don't keep seafood completely separate from the rest of the food. So many people have... More

Positives: the buffet was awesome. Everything from Alaska king crab to prime rib, and sushi in between...there was not one thing missing. Desserts were beautiful and delicious. Negatives..the wait can be long...we were not told that there was a wedding party of approx 40 guests in the buffet. Our line barely moved for 1.5 hours. Go before 5:30 or after... More

We went on a Sunday nite, and the roast beef was cooked perfectly. There was a great variety and everything we tried was excellent. There was Chinese, Indian, Sushi, baked chicken, and pasta & baked potato stations in addition to the carved roast beef. There was also a good variety of deserts including a delish gluten free chocolate cake, and... More

Bring a big appetite, dinners covers a selection of seafood, sushi, roast beef, indian and chinese selections. Dessert is out of this world. Well priced for the variety. Best to arrive early and sit in the section with water views. From breakfast to dinner to special celebrations like Chinese New Years' this place is well worth the price.
