Late one day we stopped here for a meal, what a huge mistake...I didn't have much of an expectation but it was far worse than anticipated. The ambiance of an old bus depot, service poor, food absolutely horrible, from the soup, salad and main could not actually eat any of it...my advice is pay more and go somewhere ...anywhere else!

Our food was pretty good. What I was a bit disappointed with was the Buffett. The only have a few starchy items. They no longer have wings, nugget, meatballs etc. I was looking forward to their wings. Our waitress on the other hand was awesome. She loved her job and was great at it. Nicest lady ever!

I had heard alot about this restaurant so we chose to give it a try. I have to say I was so disappointed - probably expected to much, but reminded me of a glorified school canteen. Food was ok, but overall impression just put me off - you can get much better at Millars Ale House for same money.

Visited the one opposite Old Town Kissimmee and found it had been completely revamped since our last visit in 2011. A very good choice of food and the surroundings are very good and kept clean all the time. We also visited the one up International Drive (close to Wet 'N' Wild" this was the same with a complete revamp. Staff... More
