Have been here several times for a buffet Sunday lunch. Some of the best buffet food around. Excellent choice is foods breads and drinks. Chicken is always great veggies are also. Will continue to go.

Courteous staff, good size servings but the food we ordered was not very good. It's OK for the money but certainly not if you want a tasty meal. Average cafeteria food.
