Its a buffet

Had breakfast on our way out. The buffet had a great variety. Food was pretty good. Wait staff,, well requested a slice of orange for my water and after 3 tries just finished my meal and left. As we were the first in on a week day customer volume wasn't an issue.

The restaurant is inside the Atlantis downstairs. Beautiful palm tree decor. Comfortable seating. The brunch was quite grand. Everything you could possibly want. Bottomless mimosa, and I mean you take one sip and they refill your glass immediately. Pleasant service, lots of smiles. Priced $22 and worth it to me.

Greatest buffet I've been too for the price. Chinese, Mexican, American, prime rib, fish, shrimp, crab legs. Great for all meals of the day. Something for everybody.

I LOVE Tucan Charlie's Buffet! The choice of food there is outstanding. The Mexican food is outrageous...great chili verde, you can make tacos or a taco salad. The salad bar has so many items to choose from, and there's a variety of fresh fruit. You can have a fresh made to order caesar salad -yummy! A mongolian beef grill is... More

The price was great ($20/person) but the food was just average and the selections weren't that exciting. It was mostly comfort foods without any flair and many of the foods had been sitting out for too long and were stale. I wouldn't go back.

There was every kind of food imaginable and it's one of the best buffets we ever visited. The food was fresh and the staff was very helpful.

I've been to this restaurant before including breakfast and lunch but Saturday night was the first time for dinner. The theme for that evening was steak and seafood. There were plenty of selection including crab legs, peeled shrimp, salmon, swordfish, clam chowder, oysters, scallops, prime rib and steak, among others. As you can see, there is plenty to choose from... More

They have 2 for 1 breakfast on weekdays here from 8:30am to 10:00am. They have good choices of foods. I love their chinese foods and dessert. Server named Ebi is the best. He had served us many times and his customer service skills are just exceptional.

Good service and a great selection form the buffet. A bit disappointed as we went for breakfast at 1030 am and they were already transitioning from breakfast to lunch and we missed out on the breakfast items and had more of a lunch instead.
