5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

The breakfast buffet is excellent. The selections are numerous and fresh and the waffles are exceptional especially with maple syrup and whipped cream

“Typical Buffet for Vancouver”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The food was fine for the price although could do with being a bit warmer while the service was good. The price was about right for where it is located. I would eat here again.

“Good value, attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

As the title says, this is a buffet style only restaurant. Check their website to see what the food 'theme' is for each evening. I attended Friday for the Seafood & Prime Rib. Thursday is BBQ, etc. There's a good selection of seafood which includes cold snow crab legs, prawns, fish, calamari, mussel/prawn melange and a sushi station. And of course there's a very nice custom carved prime rib station with sides of Yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes and green beans. There's also a fine selection of salads and desserts. The waitresses are very attentive in clearing dirty dishes from your table and bringing an extra plate for shells.

It's a large restaurant that will handle a good size crowd but will be very busy if there's a big show in the theatre, so check on that before arriving.

The cost is very reasonable and there's always a decent discount for those over 55. Come hungry!

“Think Treasure Island not the Wynne”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

The food ranged from only average and okay to really bad (roast beef and sweet and sour pork). Nothing stood out as good but there were items that stood out as bad. If you like seafood you can get some value in volume if nothing else.

Service was ok but had to ask for water refills and coffee as they do not make the rounds often. There are a lot better options for the money.
