Nice Dinner Buffet

Good value for the amount of food - wished there were more healthy and vegetarian optons, but overall a decent quality for a standard buffet. Staff was nice and attentive and the stirfry chef did make a vegetarian dish for my MIL-but she had to request it. The pasta bar was nice. Our daughter... read more

We ate the buffet breakfast here, and it was great! They don't tell you much about it online, but they had an omelette station, along with a pastry area, smoothies, a meat carving station, even a kid-friendly station that was lower to the ground for easy access for kids. Overall, a great buffet!

The buffet food was bland, the meat was chewy, a lot of it was cold, and the service was mediocre. The children's items weren't terrible and the desserts were okay.

Reasonable food, clean and ready to go. The Buffet was closed because it was a Sunday but the sandwich area was more than stocked.

Pricey and there wasn't a lot that our kids liked to eat there...considering it was a buffet, kind of disappointing. Our table got cleared off once and not but the waitress, but by the lady up front. Our refills didn't come until dinner was over. But the desert bar was good!

We had breakfast here four days in a row and one dinner while we stayed at the resort and we loved it. High end offerings plus made-to-order omelets for breakfast and pastas for dinner. They also offered fresh fruit smoothies for breakfast and a chocolate fountain for dinner. Well worth the money.

I understand that buffet food is not the highest of quality, but this buffet had absolutely nothing going for it. There was hardly any food left in any of the stations and what was left was inedible. The shrimp was uncleaned and actually disgusting. We did come for dinner kind of late, around 8:30 p.m., so maybe it was the... More

This was the second time my wife and I had the breakfast buffet. It is excellent for the price. No reason to walk away hungary or disappointed. Well worth the price. The bacon wrapped potatoes are the favorite. Definitely will be back

The selection and the quality were good. Everyone found exciting options from the ham and sirloin station, to the omelets, the bacon wrapped potatoes, and the smoothies.
