I have written many trip advisor reviews, and I don't remember EVER giving a place a "Terrible" rating. But, here goes: Came in for dinner this evening, after having read the mixed reviews on Trip Advisor. Ordered General Chow's Chicken and a version of Happy...More

This place keeps it real simple with only 2 Buffett stations and nothing but the good stuff . Other places overwhelm you with choices of stale cold food but not here. Trays are constantly changed and the service is down right spectacular. I recommend the...More
