Do not come to this place if you are on a diet. So much great stuff to enjoy! The best way to explain this place is being put in a position like you are a kid in a candy store.

It was ridiculously expensive, but actually pretty good. The 3 cheese ravioli was very tasty, and there were a ton of great desserts!

Good food and very convenient for the Kalahari Resort and indoor water park. The breakfast buffet was huge and fast.

We stayed at Kalahari Resort for 5 days/4 nights. We had breakfast buffet all 4 mornings and had dinner buffet 2 nights. Abbie was our morning waitress 3 days.

We had both breakfast and dinner here. The meals were included in our hotel package and well worth it! The wait staff was beyond excellent. Our first server carried on a conversation several times with our 7-year-old about everything from the activities and events to the weather!

The choices are limited at the breakfast buffet. Need more kid friendly options. Very crowded, we were in a back corner and my husband had to stand up in order for me to get to the buffet area.
