Varied stations with seafood, American, Asian, Italian and Mexican. All abundantly supplied with all kind of the respective foods. Not to mention the deserts, fit for a King! Cozy digs, friendly personnel, non-alcoholic drinks included, all at a very reasonable price. Excellent.

But worth it for the good times, and top notch service. Honestly though, not enough choices for a 5 star review.

The buffet was very good. They offered a huge variety of food and everything I tasted was great. The service was good. The only thing that was not good was that they had to go to the bar in the hotel to get alcohol which was inconvenient and cash pay oblyy

This buffet is one of my favorites. On week nights and weekends they offer warm crab legs or cold depending on your culinary taste. The mountain of shrimps makes your mouth water. Choices offers a variety of foods including, Asian, Italian, Mexican, American & Breakfast. I can't even begin to say enough about the desert section, all I can say... More
