Pretty good buffet. Not very cheap, so keep an eye out for coupons or look online for them. Staff has always been cheerful and efficient. Biggest complaint is people letting their kids serve themselves - sometimes with their hands, and parents are nowhere to be seen. Overall, good food.

After our French event another family invited me to dinner. We picked the hometown buffet because of all the variety for one price. There was a flyer on the table advertising a special, but when I went through the line they were out. As we were leaving, I noticed that now they had more. The server apparently didn't know that...

Went to lunch and I found everything I tried to be good. It is a tad bland but that was expected. Salad bar is great, the options were plentiful and this was an enjoyable meal in a nice setting with pleasant servers.

This is a buffet simple as that. I was pleasantly surprised that the potatoes actually had chunks of potato in it - was expecting instant - the steak I was expecting to be dry, but they must have brought out some fresh right before I got there because it was cooked perfectly "medium" the way I like it and it...

The food is uninspiring and bland. But there is a lot of it. The salad bar is nice and has a good variety of items. The hot food is basic buffet food, the deserts are mediocre. The wait staff is good at removing your plates when you've had enough. If you don't mind mediocre food, you will be happy.

The food here is what you would expect from a buffet: unseasoned, mass made, etc. But, that's what one expects at any buffet. The ham is usually pretty good; however, I would stay away from the steak. It's usually pretty fatty and over cooked. The service is good...Well, the hostess who takes your money at the front door is friendly,... More
