We were always there right at opening in the morning and the food was fresh, hot and delicious! Price was good for items offered. Wait staff was very attentive.

We went to the Great Karoo for breakfast on 2 different mornings. The selection was adequate and the food was delicious. The omelet stations was very good as well. They even were able to accommodate my wife's gluten free allergy for bread. It may seem small, but finding restaurants that have gluten free bread is not easy.

We ate supper at the Great Karoo buffet, and it was just average. Most things seemed like they were frozen before being cooked. The desserts were frozen and sorta freezer burned; they had no flavor. The pasta station was awesome though, because the cook made the noodles and sauce while you watched. Many kid-friendly options, and they're not too picky,... More

By far, has the best buffet options when compared to other buffet area especially with waterparks. I've stayed at Wilderness, Great Wolf, and Chula Vista and dined at their buffet restaurant but none of them compared to this place. This was our first visit and we all enjoyed it. My kids loved the options they had specially for dessert! We... More

After the last remodel this is now a market buffet. On our last stay we ate there twice for breakfast. It was amazing . The whole family found plenty to eat . And I have some picky eaters.

The breakfast buffet was delicious. There were a lot of healthy options available. I would suggest arriving before 9:30 a.m. After that, it seemed really crowded in the restaurant and a line formed. The dinner buffet was ok. I feel it wasn't worth the money.

We ate both the breakfast and dinner buffet and there was something for kids and adults. You can see the waterpark from the dining area which is great for the kids to see.

The breakfast buffet at this restaurant is reasonably priced (one of the few things reasonably priced at the Kalahari resort), and has a very great spread. We never think of any other option for breakfast when staying at the Kalahari. Will go again.

We went for Sunday breakfast, and it was awesome. For $15/person, you really can have every single breakfast item that you can think of. You can also watch them make just about everything including the pastries, so you know its all fresh. We would highly recommend!
