Breakfast buffet

I was very surprised at the elegant changes they have made to this restaurant, the choices for the breakfast buffet were impressive. They had the normal breakfast items but also had a lot of specialty items like, oatmeal with blueberry compote, grilled pineapple with mint and honey. This amazing... read more

We were great promptly and graciously, seated quickly, and let the feast begin! Hardest part is choosing what to eat. Omelets being made fresh, tons of fruit, something for everyone! If you come away hungry it wasn't their fault. Very clean restaurant, friendly staff.

We visited Kalahari water park for a 2 night stay. We ate breakfast here both mornings. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The omelet bar was my favorite. You get a bowl and pick what you want in your omelet and the chef makes it right there! Our waitresses were fast at getting our drinks, refills, and served us... More

Food was very good, but the service was so slow. Our waitress got our drinks and we did not see her again until we were done eating entirely. Our drinks were empty for at least twenty minutes. The pasta bar while fantastic, the service was slow and unfriendly.

Great breakfast buffet. This restaurant had an omelet line and so many different varieties . Try to get a deal that inlcudes this restuarant as it can be a little pricey.

Only went here for dinner, which was fair, but heard it's great for breakfast. The prime rib was VERY rare and the server was frazzled, which was kind of odd since she only had to serve beverages. We served ourselves food from the buffet.

Our first visit to Kalahari Resort and the buffet breakfast was enjoyed by adults and children alike...The beef at the carving station was unlike any I have ever tasted...( and I was just back from sampling buffets in Vegas) which was a surprise addition to the more traditional, but delicious breakfast foods. The omlet station was an experience itself and... More

Good buffet food,Pricey, but just good. Nothing really outstanding other than the servers.Once again a bit pricey, for a family of four you could easily spend around $80.00 or more for just a buffet type meal. They only serve during lunch and dinner.

We stayed at Kalihari overnight and had dinner here. It was a buffet so expectations were not high to begin with. The food was dried out because it was under heat lamps and was way overpriced for the quality. Breakfast the next morning was much, much better, especially the made to order omlettes. Probably would not eat here again for... More
