It was off season so we had to wait til the weekend to get our favorite buffet! It was worth the wait. Great selection of everything. Seafood was tasty. They even have a made to order pasta station. The prime rib was cooked perfectly. The desert station had a nice variety. Can not wait to go back next vacation.

We dined with friends who had the orange roughy, shrimp scampi, and the pork loin. They raved about the flavors. The quantity was huge. Drinks were good and priced well. Staff... More

we didn't realize the prize was kind of steep here since we were new to the area. Dinner buffet was great with seafood and steak and various other food. Dinner buffet is $40 a plate.
