It was our first Smorgasbord experience and it was delicious! Our 5 year old loved the kids' buffet. Our 1 year old was busy enjoying numerous different foods. The bread and cheese were amazing and the dessert bar was incredible. We loved it!

This was our second visit here for dinner and a show. The smorgasbord was typical but good. You can also order off the menu or visit the cafe. The small theater on the lower level presented "Josiah for President" . You'll laugh and cry and enjoy the message.We're looking forward to going again next year.

Even though it was pretty busy, our party of 6 was seated right away. Our waitress was very friendly. The smorgasbord food was good, but the choices were pretty limited, even for lunch. The prices were very reasonable.
