“Sunday Buffet - Sometimes Great - Sometimes Poor!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

I usually have Sunday lunch here every 6 weeks or so with my family. The great thing is that even though it is a buffet, you still get a good level of service and you have your table with a nice view for the afternoon. The selection is usually wide and varied - particularly the salads. Sometimes though, the selection is reduced and some of the offerings feel they are past their best. Either way - you pay the same price. Location is great, parking is free, wait staff are friendly and dining room is well laid out - if only the could provide consistant quality food - it would be a great spot.

“Good quality and ample portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

We were a table of four. The waiting staff knew the menu and were able to explain the dishes if required. The wine list was fair, but short of French wines, but plenty of New World wines. They were good quality, if not a bit on the pricey side.
The food was good in both quality and quantity. The portions were ample, if not overly generous. Service was excellent and the waiting staff were always close by but not in your face.
I would recommend this restuarant without hesitation.
