We dined at the Friday seafood buffet on October 23, 2015. This was the best restaurant meal we've had in years. Salmon in a rose cream sauce was a highlight. However everything was excellent - fresh crab legs, wonderfully seasoned vegetables, chocolate cheesecake. We were too full to taste everything. It's a bit pricey, but well worth it. We'll be...

It was the dinner fare that was problematic. When I pay over $25 an entrée I expect potatoes that do not taste that they are from a box, and preferably a choice of baked in addition to mashed and fries. I expect a filet to be tender. And I expect a steak to be less than 50 % fat, which... More

Highly recommend the Sunday Buffet. I would have been satisfied with a typical buffet -- but when you add prime rib, crab legs, and shrimp -- there is no way one can even try all the rest of the offerings. Did I also mention that non-alcoholic drinks and two tables of desserts are included? One hint -- the hours are... More

I think that The food is mediocre but there are many people who love the Friday Buffet. I just find the atmosphere oppressive and dingy. It's not the worst but I won't go back!

I ate here on a business stay at the hotel and my company allows a $20 limit for meals. I was surprised how much food was over that price range. The food was very fast despite being busy and was pretty good at that.

The service here is so slow it's unreal. The food is ok and the place smells a bit. But at least the kids eat free. I suggest for the breakfast to order food fresh. The pancakes were good that my daughter ordered. The buffet was ok.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn that houses the restaurant. We chose to eat breakfast here with a restaurant.com certificate. We chose full menu breakfast, but the is a buffet available which looked fantastic. I had eggs benedict which was phenomenal. I believe they also offered a kids eat free with adult purchases so that was a plus for us

Thank you for your great review. I am glad you like the eggs benedict. To clarify your comment, we do participate in Kids Eat Free which is for kids 12 and under. They eat free off the children's menu with the purchase of an accompanying adult entrée. This promotion is valid for 4 children per dining adult. I hope you... More

On the positive side, service was good. Staff were friendly and polite. On the down side, everything was sticky: The floors, the tables and even the salt shaker. Food was average.
