I liked the wide variety of dishes on the buffet and the overall quality of the dishes. The staff were all very friendly.

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.

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

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.
