Best breakfast buffet around. Something for everyone in our group even the picky ones. Grandchildren had no complaints.

We've eaten here both times we stayed at Kalahari. It's not cheap, but the food is amazing. The short ribs are calling my name months later. Ha. The kid's buffet is fun, too. Lots of choices to make the kids happy and its lower so they can reach. Top it off with fun mini- desserts. Delicious! This restaurant is also... More

We loved the breakfast buffet. There is something for everyone to choose from. The service was excellent. The restaurant was very clean and so were the restrooms.

Apparently, even in summer, only open for dinner, on Thursday through Sunday. We missed that window, and our child was not happy to miss it. We went for breakfast and while pricey, the selection was large and servers friendly. I did not like having to leave a tip on the credit card before the meal. Since I tip for service,... More

Fantastic. We opted for the Choose Your Own Adventure Package at Kalahari, one of the choices was $40 off breakfast. So, we only paid $25 for (4) instead of $65. Even at $65 plus tip, it would have been worth it. No one walked away hungry, the service was great, and the food was good. Gluten free choices available also!... More

My family and I visited this restaurant for breakfast and it honestly had everything I could think of! Omelette station, oatmeal, fruits, pastries, turkey sausage, cheeses, caprese salad, cereal, fresh fruit to take with you, smoothies, pancakes, etc. Service was great and our waitress was very friendly. You can tell the food is fresh because of the layout and quality... More

There was a great selection. Service was excellent. All sections were consistently reloaded. Create your own pasta was a great add-on.
