And a real bargain. Kids prices are reduced and under 3 are free. Everything was wonderful and the fresh squeezed orange juice is a nice touch. The coffee is terrible. Their lunch and dinner options are so greasy, however, that they will make you nauseous.

The breakfast buffet has everything. Really great start to the day! Fyi: if you want variety, this is the spot...fruits, meats, biscuits & gravy, pancakes & my fav belgium waffles!! Fresh squeezed orange juice too.

My family and I ate here 4 times during our stay in suite #168. Three of the four times we ate breakfast, and had dinner once.

The breakfast buffet is super yummy. We always get it as part of the eat and sleep package, so it's included in our stay price (I think it's quite pricy otherwise).

Great selection at the buffet for breakfast and price was comparable to other buffets. Only negatives was the method of paying the bill (you have to fill out tip portion prior to charge card being ran). Server didn't refill beverages
