Enjoyable Experience

My first time visit was good but I believe more visits will be needed to evaluate it thoroughly. Our visit was a weeknight at 5 PM. It was not crowded and the overall visit was good. There was so much food I was unable to experience many items. The seafood was my main selection but wish I would... read more

You cant beat this restaurant for delicious, fresh food. The variety is overwhelming and you will not go home hungry. I never waste room with a salad but the salad bar is par none. Freshest and most available options for a salad.

The food selection is tops and well maintained and clean. Can eat as much as you want of any item. The building is too small and crowded. It is chore to make it back to your table without someone knocking your food out of your hand. Price not bad for quality and quantity.

Wife and I visited this restaurant for dinner. Very few people in restaurant. Staff was very friendly when we arrived and paid. Once seated, our waitress only checked on us twice. One of our drinks was refilled once. Staff started picking up the food from the buffet before closing time. Children on two sides of us were screaming. However, the... More

I will never go back to this establishment. When I visited with my kids the place was not clean at all. I found an insect wing in my cabbage and a hair stuck to the rolls. I contacted their headquarters about these problems but never received a response.

The Price is about 32 dollars for two, but when you think about a meal for two with steak or shrimp at any other restaurant...Is about the same. The difference is that they offered everything on the menus of other restaurants at a one plate price. The management staff was very welcoming and the cooks were friendly and clean cut.... More

For two, we paid $32 for the buffet. Although most of the food was really good, the best part was their salad bar. Everything was fresh and was very brightly colored and crisp. The waitress was very nice. We enjoyed our meal very much so. We plan to go back again soon.
