Staff was tops, selection and food -- awesome. Turkey, prime rib, pork roast, lamb, crab legs, cheeses, fruits, salad bar. One thing -- the desert wasn't buffet, they asked what you preferred and served you, however the waiter brought one of each to sample. My daughter wasn't hungry for her cheese cake so the waiter asked if she wanted it... More

Fresh and varied with long time favorites. I love the varieties offered from traditional scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon to the biscuit filled egg/meat option. Fresh fruit, juices, and more are available for the buffet price. Slight charge for tea or coffee, but worth it

The breakfast buffet was fantastic. There were 2 choices - Continental buffet was a large variety of fresh fruits, meats and cheeses. Also yogurt, granola, a large variety of bread items and fresh squeezed orange juice. For @ $4 more you can add the eggs, potatoes and meats. The staff was very friendly and Michelle, our waitress the first morning... More

My scheduled time was 1:30 pm, was full into the next day. Even better my family in the area waiting until Friday for the Thanksgiving... More

Had the Gulf Snapper, it was wonderful! Husband had Kobe burger and enjoyed it, though my snapper was the highlight. Great service too!

We as a couple and one other gentleman were the only ones in there. Waitress was wonderful but the food was just so so. Had the risotto and was not the best... More
