“Decent buffet for breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The buffet works because it is the quickest and easiest way to eat breakfast unless you have access to something in your room. It is entirely serve yourself with a range of items, but not extensive or exhaustive.

“Bar none the worst food ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I cannot see how anyone can say the food there was good. They must have had a lucky day because the food we had was disgusting. Everything was heavily salted (and I like salty). The mashed potatoes tasted as though they'd been overly done in a food processor - you could stand a fork up in them. The pasta sauce was salt flavored tomato sauce with herbs, the tilapia was watery and so were the vegetables. The only bread on offer was white. The salad bar was fresh (as described by others), but the choice was limited. Dressing was either Ranch (perhaps 3 choices of ranch...hard to tell) or oil and vinegar. The dessert (chocolate cake) tasted like the sweetener was fake. In the end, we paid $14.99 each for a white bread roll and some water melon. Also, the place didn't feel clean. Just horrid - we would never go back. I was dreading being asked "How was everything?" because I simply wouldn't have known what to say. No point in complaining...they just don't know how to cook.

“Better than expected!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Normally, we don't do buffets as the ingredients tend to be on the cheap side. However, the night we dined, the salad bar ingredients were fresh (although not a lot of variety) but still very adequate. The buffet was prime rib (husband said was good) and the half chicken was moist and tasty. The buffet was $29.95 and includes the salad bar, dinner, sodas and a choice of dessert. If I had gone here the first night, I might not have gone anywhere else the other two nights.

“Go to the Cafe!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

In the first place, it is no longer a steakhouse - that is very misleading. We had dinner there, so I cannot speak to breakfast and lunch. At dinner there is a buffet with a salad bar (very limited), prime rib (ok), and a hot table with chicken and some veggies (not very good). Dessert was the best part of the meal - but that did not make it worth the $30/person price. Go to the Cafe - for less money you can have much better food, atmosphere, and service!

“Nice but compared to what?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Very nice food and the service was very good, however it's either here or a pizza next door (all part of the same kitchen anyway) to me it was an over priced and I mean over priced steak house. For what it cost I would have eaten in the bar next door. Sorry, really nice food but far too expensive
