Huge line developed after 5:15pm, so glad we weren't in it. Great buffet spread, very fresh. Huge variety, very impressed by selections. And as busy as it was, nobody rushed us whatsoever. Hadn't been to a Sizzler in decades, would return.

A few years back, they remodelled this location and upgraded the menu. They installed an actual meat smoker outside, and served many smoked meat dishes. However, yesterday we went back, and all the great smoked meat dishes are off the menu. I used to get the smoked Tri Tip for $12.99, a tasty meal with wonderful sides. I asked the... More

The steak was cooked to perfection. The salad bar is clean and fresh. This Sizzler is a great example of how all Sizzlers should be.

The ordering was quick and easy, our seating was comfortable, and the drinks and food were served in a reasonable amount of time. The food was very good and the portion size very filling. Service was good and will be back on another Sun. afternoon

My only mistake was ordering too much food. For a senior like me, the salad bar all by itself was plenty of food. And it was excellent food too. The first time we went I ordered a salad bar and a steak entree. It was very good but in hindsight the entree was just too much food. They make you... More

Seriously folks, if you are looking for steak or seafood, do you really want it from Sizzler ? First off, the place is not cheap - my family dragged me here on a Friday evening & dinner for -3- was like $75.00. The food/salad bar is horrible, greasy, fatty foods & everyone's hands touching stuff. The Rib-Eye was dreadful &... More

Unfortunately I had to move my overall experience down to average for this restaurant. I have been a regular customer. I use to eat here once or twice a month. Now I have been showing up maybe every 3 months. Lately the management appears to act as if you are inconveniencing them when you have an issue. I rarely complain... More

For the money it is an enjoyable dining experience. The salad bar is well stocked and fresh. The fresh hot rolls are delivered with a smile. They refill your drinks in a timely manner and keep the table cleared.

I use to eat at the old Sizzler (OFTEN) and this one recently remodeled. The inside is very nice but less space to walk. When busy expect to bump into people. Before you would place and pay for your order and then go sit down but now when you pay you have to then move over to another line to... More

We went to dinner on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was packed, standing room only. The sirloin steak and salad bar were very good. The salad bar food was fresh and it offers a variety of options including pasta, meatballs and tacos in addition to a variety of prepared salads, fruit and desserts. The service was attentive and the... More
