Awesome Breakfast buffet

Had everything you could possibly want in a breakfast buffet. The kids especially liked the smoothie bar.

This is breakfast buffet done correctly. Quality over quantity. There were many food option including an omelette station. Everything from fresh fruit and smoothies to European style breakfast options with meats and cheeses and everything in between. Service was excellent and it was even offered to get a cup of coffee to go.

It is very efficient, clean, modern, lots of variety. They even have a kids buffet with M&M pancakes. the price is very steep. Over $60 for breakfast for 2 adults and 3 kids who ate very little. Would not recommend for those going to the water park as the kids are not interested in eating. Pack some bagels and cream... More

Overall we had a good experience, however biggest complaint would be the ages for children are 3+ I think they should increase that a bit because most 4-5 year olds don't eat enough to justify the $8 worth

Less than average food. We were charged more for the same number of people the second day. How does that happen?

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. Most of the choices were very good and none of what I had was less than average tasting. Drink was included in the buffet price. Price was ok but probably could be a couple... More

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.
