The food was ok. service, practically non existent, had a party of over 60 people there on 1/10/14. was told it closed at ten, but could extend. manager was nowhere to be found. you would think that someone brings a party of over 60 people in, that the manager would at least greet, congratulate, thank for business. Did not happen... More

This is just an average buffet places shimmied up to look nicer. It's way, way, way too expensive for what you get. Granted, they have a lot of choices, but many aren't very good. And the coupons they give out are a riot! They are worth nothing, really. Stay away, it won't be open for long.
