Lacking the Wow but still Tasty

I went here with friends on a weeknight. The buffet was only $12.95 it was lacking any wow factor, with very little variety. But I will say everything I tried I enjoyed. I thought the quality of everything was very good the potato salad tasted homemade the roast beef was cooked nicely and tasted... read more

Had the seafood buffet. It was incredible. Crab legs were cooked to perfection, and when you got to your table, all the tools you need to crack crab magically appeared. The only thing I wasn't thrilled with was there were nothing for a lighter dessert (no fruit). Other than that, stellar buffet.

The food was good and the price was reasonable for a seafood night. Loved the crab legs and deserts. The food was fresh and plentiful.

There's plenty of choices: ribs, roast beef, chicken, baked salmon and lots of cakes as dessert but they don't have any fruit.

This is a pretty limited buffet and what there is isn't especially well prepared. An exception is the bread pudding. They also had a tasty sugar free berry pie, but the entrees are unimaginative and seem none too fresh.

This is the second time we have eaten here on a Sunday and the second time we were disappointed. Some of the food was cold and other food did not taste fresh. Salad bar and bread pudding was good. We have eaten here other days without issue but Sundays seem to be bad. We were staying in the hotel and... More

I'm on a rigid eating plan and this buffet had enough choices that I could maintain my acceptable food selections. The restaurant is on the edge of the non-smoking side of the slot machines, so although there was a slight smoking smell, we did not find it overly offensive. The price was reasonable, and we asked for a quiet table... More

Went Memorial Day and was surprised to find the lunch buffet was only $7.99. Now I know why. One half hour after opening the food looked like it had been sitting for two days. Selection was minimal at best, cold and tasted terrible. Too many other places to try. Wont be back

My! We sure have gone downhill since April. It is now a lot pricier so there were a lot fewer people eating here. And because there were so few people, the food had congealed - not very appetizing even to look at.
