This buffet restaurant serves good food at a decent price. We stayed at the resort, so the location was obviously excellent. The buffet serves a nice variety of good food. The prime rib and Cajun pork was excellent, as was the variety of high class desserts. The service was also excellent.

Had the breakfast buffet twice while we stayed there. Plenty of great choices including some awesome quesadillas. Highly recommend if the cost doesn't scare you off.

At first my husband was not so great with the price of this breakfast buffet but let me tell you it is worth every penny. This is not a cheap place with cheap buffet food. It is fantastic, we went twice and would have gone more if we had discovered it earlier in our trip. I have been having dreams... More

One of the best buffets ever! Food was fresh and hot. The variety was incredible. Prime rib for breakfast. Fresh made smoothies, the list could go on and on. Didn't have to eat until dinner. Bon Appetit

First of all its Expensive. The food is cold and not a lot of food to choose from. Not worth your money. Plates and glasses were dirty.

Amazing selection of breakfast food! I especially loved the build your own omelet station. My kids loved all the fruit and fun flavored (cookie dough) pancakes.

This is our first time at Kalahari Resort so we tried this buffet. The food is absolutely terrible, expensive and not worth it. The prime rib was tough and had no taste. The stir fry bar is a great idea but all the options were bad. We suggest go elsewhere.

Loved the buffet. Right next to the Waterpark so you can eat at the breakfast buffet then walk to the water park. But be warned if you want a bloody marry you better be ready to wait. Even though there is a bar right next door. It was also a little pricey

First tried the dinner meal and the prepared food and items from the carving station were cold. The pasta bar was good and was prepared with your selection of added ingredients. Then tried the breakfast buffet and had the same results everything cold except the omelet bar. Finally, received our coffee as we were leaving. Very slow with delivering drinks.

This is a very good buffet as far as buffet's go. They feature a wide selection of food, smoothies, candy filled pancakes. A nice touch is having a buffet table that is low enough for kids to help themselves, and it features foods geared towards kids. Very nice staff as well
