Christmas eve buffet

The buffet has a nice variety of food and our large party was seated quickly. I would have liked to give this a higher rating, but the server seemed rattled and did not provide beverages to the teenagers until the adults asked if he had asked them for their drink orders. After a while he paid more... read more

First time at the buffet for us locals; the food selection was worth the value of $18/person included non alcoholic drinks. The carved meats were all good flavor plus there was prime rib, fried chicken, and maple glazed ham! The service was tropical buffet style but our server was attentive of our refills. We tried just about everything except sushi... More

We wanted a reasonable priced place to eat a late breakfast with four teenaged girls. We walked to MontBleu from our unit at the Marriott Timber Lodge. The buffet was priced... More

We enjoyed the Friday Seafood buffet. I particularly liked the New England clam chowder, fish with caper sauce, cole slaw, salad bar, garlic green beans, cooked vegetables and the desserts were very good. Our waiter, David, was very attentive and pleasantly professional. Our empty dishes were removed regularly and drinks refilled consistently. We arrived a few minutes after the buffet... More

Not bad but not also great like Las Vegas casinos. It's only $12.95, you can really expect filet mignon or to die for food. If you compare with other buffets, it's pretty comparable.

I ate at the buffet on Sunday, August 3rd, during the "Brunch". The food was cold and had little flavor. When I asked the employee to bring out some fresh gravy, he just blew it off. Many of the entrees were missing and it took a long time to be refilled. The best part of the buffett were the cookies.... More
