Outstanding Food and Variety!

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.

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!

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.

One of the best breakfast buffets we've been to. The mini smoothies were great! Nice view of the water park also.

The food was pretty good here. We went for dinner and a lot of the food was just warm. (from sitting I guess). It was VERY busy in there since it was Christmas Eve. The cost was 50 bucks for 2 adults. I thought that was a little steep for what they offered.

We had the Sunday buffet. It has improved over the years and the selection has improved. The price is not too bad for a buffet but still a little pricey.
