The restaurant was clean and the staff pleasant. Some of the food was a bit over cooked on the smorgasbord.

Food was ok, price was ok kind of dirty inside. It would have been better if the guy beside us was not hacking and clearing his throat every 30 seconds..I really couldn't eat after about 10 min of it :(

I began to imagine what the kitchen was like, being that it is out... More

We ordered a fish sandwich...came on a bun with NOTHING else....had to ask for lettuce, tomato, tartar sauce....and this took forever to get there. My daughter ordered kids spaghetti. I asked what is the sauce and was told, plain tomato....it came... More

Everything from the food to the restrooms were disgusting. We got the buffet and everything was rubbery, hard, or cold...etc (or a combination of 2 out more). Service was friendly and fast, but just a terrible place to eat

I wish buffets would list what is there to choose! I almost got what I thought was tapioca pudding as it was by other puddings and luckily I... More

Had the buffet, salads were fresh, but meats were deep fried way too long; high school (?) waitress was talking with 2 girls at a booth about personal business for the whole hour we were there and they were being nasty to another girl who was doing all the work at the food bar. Bullying ? Didn't see anyone who... More
