Not a fancy place but good food and service. Nasty bathroom and beer was warm. I'll be back because of the crab legs.

You would think you were eating at a Vegas buffet for the price you pay. Crab legs were good but that's about it. The rest of the food was petty comparable to golden corral...not bad, but not good. Our total bill (after tip) was 160 for 4 people. 2 adults, 1- 16yr old, 1- 9yr old. Guess I just expected... More
