We ate there during a winter visit. It was clean and fast. A little expensive, but it's the Dells, so that's to be expected.

The food was good. The buffet was quite extensive, with everything you could ask for, including made-to-order omelets.

Due to picky eater in our group, we only ate at the breakfast buffet but wished we could have tried the dinner one as it looked fantastic when we did a walk through. They have an amazing variety, and everything I tried on the breakfast buffet was delicious. Staff was very courteous and helpful - top notch!!!

This was one of the restaurants that were included in a package deal that we purchased for the Kalahari. The buffet was terrific for breakfast and dinner. They also have a shorter buffet suited just for children's food. Very good food!

Delicious foods. Lots of variety and the kids loved it. They were extremely cautious with our allergies and thorough with helping us find out what we could and could not eat. Loved the staff.

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 loved that the kids buffet was... 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.
