My family & I were in town for New Years & decided to try this buffet. We got there & found it would be about another hour until they opened for dinner. We went upstairs to the arcade & came back down about 45 minutes later to find a line wrapped down & around the corner. The line was ridiculous.... More

I am rather surprised at all the rave reviews for this buffet. Maybe I came on an "off" night. The price was definitely better than other buffets that we have gone to. The food was nothing spectacular. The best section would have been the Mexican food. The deserts were not very good- hard to mess up.

For a buffet, this is one of the best. The selection is extensive and the prices are reasonable. Breakfast was great. They had made to order eggs and omlets as well as Mexican breakfast items.

The breakfast buffet will last you till evening - fresh fruit, asian (dumplings, summer rolls), pancakes, omelett, 10 types of pie, not to talk about bread & salad options. The plates are pizza plate size, so watch how much you gather on them :-) There is a special queue for card holders that might be helpful on busy mornings.

This is a must buffet when you are in the biggest little city in America. I only wish I wasn't allergic of shrimp.
