Horrible food two days straight, not enough staff. The buffet wasn't filled often enough even though they knew 100 of us were dining there for two days... 3 times a day! The seafood buffet night food wasn't edible at all nor was the pasta buffet night food. The desserts were obviously not cooked there and was all that was worth... More

Ate here a couple times during our stay at the hotel. Excellent buffet, especially the dessert bar. And good selection off the menu also.

Tonight we went for the Ukrainian buffet. What a mistake. The salad bar was okay, the soup was great but after that not much positive in the experience. While the chicken cutlet really wasn't too bad and the perogies were just okay. The cabbage rolls were so mushy inside that they were inedible, as were the meatballs (mushy). There was... More

My husband almost always gets the buffet I never do as I don't eat enough to cover the cost he always finds food to like on it. I usually have a bit or else a grilled cheese sandwich. We always have our breakfasts there as the breakfasts are always great, good down home cooking. It isn't super fancy or stuffy... More

If you like a buffet to choose what you want to eat -- and you are a senior over 70, and you "eat like a bird" -- this place may NOT be for you. Dinner on a weekday is $22.35 including tax and beverage. (I believe Mondays it's about $17.00). There is a Blue Plate Special where you select one... More

I went to the Friday night all you can eat seafood buffet. For the most part it wasn't bad, a bit bland. Plus, when getting the crab legs, one of the servers kept belittling the guy serving the crab legs saying "don't give them so much". Hmm, I thought it was all you can eat. Plus, there was a salmon...

Good service. Horrendous food (even by buffet-re-heating standards). Eggs were acceptable, but it was all down hill from there. The hash browns were dry and stale to the point of being chewy. Sausages were of similar texture and nearly tasteless. The pancakes have to be tried to be believed. By far the worst I've had in my entire life. Dense,... More

Had one lunch buffet, it was excellent. Would have liked to try the other lunch and dinner buffets (there is a different theme every day), but could not fit it in. The breakfast buffet leaves something to be desired. There is a good selection of "continental breakfast" items but the hot offerings were mediocre at best. I skipped it after... More

Can't beat the price. The selection is a little limited but everything's good & you can have as much as you want. I've been there more than a few times & the staff has always been very friendly & helpful. I'd recommend it to anyone
