We ate in the BallyBuffet Bistro on our way home from a day out. We got one of the booths for 6 so had plenty of space as we were a party of 4. We chose off the specials board, although there is plenty of choice on the menu. Staff friendly and attentive. We all enjoyed our meal and while... More

Menu is very poor, very little choices! Food didn't impress me or my family to much! Wouldn't waist my time in going AGAIN!

staff working were very pleasant, but not enough staff working. My meal was not cooked, my mothers meal was a 'congealed mess'. Desserts were good. I noticed meals from 2 other tables also being returned. Waitress dealt with my complaint very efficiently.
