Excellent Choice, But Overpriced

Fundamentally, it's a solid option: a big, healthy buffet of soups, salads, and other goodies. That said, you're spending a *lot* of money for a limited buffet. Food's excellent, service is excellent, just a bit pricy.

I'm sure there is a deal to be had here. But, I didn't find it. I thought it was expensive for what we had and like any buffet type deal, you wonder how clean stuff is and how long the food has been out. I didn't think this was anything that unique or amazing.

Great for all ages. Has food even the Pickiest eaters will choose. Great coupons for whole family's of 4 for $24.99 including unlimited drinks. Excellent choice of Real Lemonades and Coffees and Teas along with regular fountain drinks. Soups have a wide range and are very good. Very Friendly Staff and always replenishing to keep fresh

Selection of salads and soups was great (even teenagers liked it). Pasta dishes cooked too long though. Dessert bar has fruit and ice cream. Sign up online to their website to receive a 20% off your entire order coupon.

This is self serve buffet make your own salad, soups, pasta cafeteria style place. We were starving so we thought it would be good since you didn't have to wait to order, etc. Boy! The salad dressings were watered down as were all the soups. No flavor. The basic green salad with toppings were pretty much the best thing on... More

Last minute choice for a light dinner. Salad bar is always good and has something for everyone! Love the hot soup choices and, of course, the soft serve ice cream. Never disappointed!

The food is as usually great but what made this recent visit of mine more special was the customer service. I took in a 15% off entire bill but the barcode did not work there. So, the manager over there who was at the counter at that time took 20% off coupon from the shelf and applied it to our... More
