Sunday brunch for 2 was $50+...it was clean and well staffed. Service was friendly and efficient. They seemed to have a wide variety of things but they just didn't hit our palette right BUT to be fair...we're NOT fans of all you can eat buffets.

TERRIBLE!!! I got there right when they opened to ensure freshness of the food. Most items I tried were cold or like warm :/ The breading of the fried chicken was GREAT GREAT GREAT...however there is hardly any meat on the chicken. The food was presented nicely and the place was clean but for $16+ it was absolutely disappointing.

A great variety of foods, some of the items you usually see like chicken, fish, etc., and some you don't see like oxtail stew. Very pleased. Good food. Awesome staff.

I had dinner last night and breakfast this morning. Plentiful food. Good service. Here's my complaint, please don't assume everyone is a shrimp/crab leg eater. The buffet without crab legs isn't worth 28 bucks. Run your shrimp palooza, but give non seafood eaters a chance to opt out. Luckily I had comps or I don't think it would've been a... More
