On a dark and stormy night!

We ran in here on a dark, stormy night in April, while attending the Lakeland Airshow. We were looking for something different, and this was it. You choose your selections from a buffet of raw veggies, seafood, fowl, and meat, and take them to the cooks who grill it to order on a huge (aprox 10... read more

Went here while on a business trip. I was sadly disappointed. You can choose from the salad bar, one bowl of BBQ or all you can eat. The prices are expensive for what you get. I opted for the one bowl of BBQ that included a bowl of rice. The bowl to take up is small and does not accommodate... More

Wanted to try this place as we walk by it all the time... Wish we just kept on walking. First, it's very confusing as to how the whole thing works. People there didn't seem to know what to do, including us. Second, the food was terrible. Service was mediocre at best. The expensive price tag was definately not worth the... More

Have been there several times. They have very fresh food for the grill aspect of the meal. You can choose what you like and that is a big plus for me.

Terrible salad bar, low quality ingredients you have to put in bowl and wait for it to be cooked. The only thing worse than the food was the service. In the40 minutes we where there, not a single dish was removed. $14 for mediocre stir fry was too much!

If you haven't been before, it's a bit of work to figure out how to do things there, but once you get the hang of it, the food is delicious. Very entertaining for the kids to watch them cooking the food.

Interesting concept where you choice raw food, make a combination of meats and veggies, with choice of sauce where you take it over to the chef , cooks it on a large steel grill as you watch and wait, you are served rice at your table. Little slow, we had to wait in line for it to be cooked, but... More

This place was a lot of fun! The grill guys play around and flip their spatulas. It's amateur but still cool to see, especially for the kidos! I packed my bowl with lots of vegetables and made a sweeter and peppery sauce with strips of ribeye. I am not a vegetarian, I just like veggies more then meat. They had... More
