“A good buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

This buffet is always well-tended and filled with fresh, flavorful choices. The staff is friendly. They keep everything neat and are good at clearing plates and refreshing drinks.

“GOING DOWNHILL”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Recent visit to this restaurant showed a dramatic downturn in quality of food. We have frequented this restaurant many times in the past and found it acceptable but the last two times we noticed it was getting worse each time.. Our most recent visit found the food cold,,the trays almost empty, and food dried out from sitting. Very infrequently the person checking the food would replenish trays with very sparse amounts. If one didn,t get up quick enough,the tray would be empty again. VERY DISAPPOINTING and probably won't try this place again

“Yuk”

food was very greasy, salty, and the taste of food seem to go from one to another. Not much of a selection .....
