The breakfast buffet was something else. Many stations including one for kids, a smoothie/berry station, pastries, omelet and what I would call a regular breakfast station.

The upgrade and relocation to this restaurant is beautiful. The detail and the decor are just amazing. I like how the buffet is laid out in stations. Food was very good and selection was awesome. Great omelets at the omelet bar from Jacob the chef.

We had the breakfast buffet for both mornings & loved both visits. They moved this to the other corner of the lobby & doubled the size of the restaurant. Each of the 5 food stations had a variety of fresh & delicious options. Our waitress Jennifer was extremely friendly & attentative.

We ate at The Great Karoo for both breakfast and dinner, and loved both meals there. The breakfast wait times are a little long, but worth it in the end.

I expected the price to be what it was, being a resort buffet. there really wasn't a huge selection of food, but what they did have was good.

We ate Breakfast both morning here. The food was excellent. There were so many choices. Everything from homemade smoothies, fresh fruit, an omelet station where you choose your own ingredients, pancakes, French toast , pastries and more. If you go away hungry that is your own fault. The prices was $14.99 for adults.

We were amazed at the great food selection. The food options were good-like shrimp made 6 different ways, lots of fish choices, fantastic striploins. Beverages were included with our meal. The whole family was happy to eat here.
