Food just OK. Service was quick. They have a very limited buffet at lunch, mostly pizza and salad bar. Very fair pricing.

I love good pizza. Not mediocre pizza. This was great. I wasn't expecting much for the area but I was pleasantly surprised. Try it! The pizza buffet had good variety.

We had lunch here after touring the caves because it was recommended to us by one of the guides. We had the pizza buffet. The prices were very reasonable and the food was delicious. They even came out with a special slice of pepperoni-only pizza for my daughter, who tends to be picky. The place was clean and the service... More

Though small by comparison, the salads buffet and pizza buffet offered for lunch was great. Very good options on both buffets. And, it was all good! Can't beat it for $7.
