This has got to be THE WORST buffet, restaurant or meal I have ever eaten in my life. The buffet was absolutely ridiculous.
First off, they couldn't keep plates stocked. I don't know if they were short a dishwasher, or short on plates, but every time we needed a new plate (there were 15 of us), we had to wait atleast 5 minutes if not longer. The one time I flagged down a server and asked for more plates, he brought out 5 (FIVE) plates. That's it.
The choices were extremely limited and consisted of fried shrimp, chicken nuggets, fried chicken, "buffalo ribs" (I have my doubts about the truth of that), "buffalo stew" (which looked more like a concoction of yesterdays buffet leftovers - carrots, green beans, buffalo meat *gag*), a few canned vegetable options, and then there were the choices of pork loin, ham & "prime rib". I tried most everything and the ONLY edible thing was the chicken nuggets! My fried chicken was so dry I almost choked, the pork loin was also way overcooked, the ham was insanely fatty, and the "prime rib" was much more like a VERY overcooked roast, but certainly not prime.
The salad bar was pretty decent, although options were limited. Dessert consisted of one option - brownies. I didn't bother eating them as I don't like brownies with frosting, but my kids enjoyed them thoroughly.
Our server was good, but I honestly couldn't understand why he even worked in such a place.
For almost $17 a plate I expected something much better (much, much better) and then to top it off we paid almost $2.50 for each drink. They definitely hosed us!
I truly walked away from that place wondering if we would all be ill the next day. I actually made the comment while we were eating that this is a place for Gordon Ramsey and his Kitchen Nightmares. Luckily we all seem to have survived the experience, but we will certainly steer clear, and we will be certain to warn others to do the same.
