Not bad

Wide variety of foods to choose from. The food is not bad but at times the food could be hotter. I don't like when the waitresses stand by your table and watch you eat. Otherwise I would recommend.

Its a buffet. Not bad but at times they are slow to refill the crab legs which goes quick. Sometimes you feel pushed to hurry up and eat.

Since this is a local restaurant, we have dined here many times. Although the variety of foods in the buffet is amazing, the quality seems to be going downhill. Many of the items were room-temp when they should have been hot. I shouldn't complain since I went back 3 times for more food. The service is very good. The girls... More

Not the cleanest buffet I have ever been in. The food was average, not bad, but not great. The price was a little high, they had snow crab legs on the menu, but they didn't refill them as fast as the customers emptied the dish. Several patrons were disappointed that the crab legs was constantly empty. Not terrible, but not... More

Fifteen of us went here to celebrate a birthday. After reading some of the previous reviews I was skeptical but to our surprise the food and service were great. They had many choices one of which is my granddaughter's favorite, Crab Legs. Everything was hot ans fresh and the waitstaff was very attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant.
