You won't go away hungry. Take as many trips to the food bar as you want. Great steaks. Great desserts. Great service. Senior lunch and dinner prices.

This Steak was so tough Rocky couldn't beat it let alone eat it. I complained they brought out another... More

I would not recommend the steak. Very low quality cuts. The buffet however has lots of choices. home town type cooking with a large salad and desert section. nice change of pace.
