Good but not great

I have eaten here a few times and it is good but not the best I have ever eaten. This particular trip was pretty good! There was nothing that I ate that was bad. I think it was better this trip than I have had at other times. We went after church services on a Sunday and there were very... read more

My husband wanted to try this local restaurant again, and I reluctantly agreed. We arrived at 5:30 pm on a Friday evening. We were seated quickly, and put in our drink orders. We then went up to the Buffet. Being Friday night, and during "dinner time", we expected to see and eat fresh, hot food! We were wrong. I tried... More

Although the food tastes good they don't have a wide selection and barely keep anything it on the food bars and when asked to bring out more food I got the food... More

Has a good taste sometimes. I have tried the... More

Okay, so perhaps I'm too critical? About half the buffet pans were empty. Who knows? Maybe there was good stuff there. You have to use your imagination. Egg rolls are not supposed to be sticky / chewy like bubble gum, or is it just me? $10 a pop for dinner. I suggest the steak house down the road - or... More
