We were new in town and ate here before talking to other people. No one else in the entire restaurant. We were the only ones. Food looked like it had been on the bar all day, and it was only a little after noon. Not...More

food was fresh and hot, it was good but nothing that stood out from the typical buffet. They do have a menu that you can order from but it wasn't given to us as an option, we were just told to go to the buffet
