Best Turkey Breast!

Much better than your average buffet. Especially love the carving section and the desserts. Always enjoy visiting with Allie!

It was the worst food I have ever eat cold crab legs paper-thin prime rib and just disgusting. Very disappointed for my first time there

First time here and I over ate something fierce. Prime rib roasted to perfection. Very friendly staff. No restrooms in the buffet itself. Every item on the buffet was fresh and delicious. Desserts were very good as well. Even the coffee was good. We will be coming here again as soon as my cholesterol levels drop.

The food is absolutely amazing (which you don't see a lot with buffets). The staff are very kind and always check to make sure that you are satisfied. I personally go here at least 10 times a year living 3 hours away. It is definitely worth it!!

The buffet had a large selection of foods ( even at 45 minutes to close) but it wasn't great. The first few bites tasted good, but then it all started to taste too sweet or too salty and became unpalatable.

Don't get to go too often, But they have awesome chooses. You can't possibly eat everything they cook. And the dessert area has so many to choose from, it's hard to make a decision.It's really bright and colorful and the waiters are right on top of things no matter how busy it should get. Love to go, love the food,... More

The access to this buffet is a long walk past two casinos filled with tobacco smoke, unless you get out and enter the building at the drop-off circle out front. On this day something was screwy with the casino computers. Since they had only two cashiers open, the line to get in stretched into the hallway. It took 15 minutes... More

They always have a good selection and if you leave hungry that's your own fault. The variety is excellent , especially my favorite, the dessert bar.

Everything was poor quality. Not good. Didn't have a favorite anything. Save your money or spend it at the casino.
