“Inexpensive - only thing going for it”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Fairly inexpensive for breakfast buffet - about a basic as it can get, only fruit available was canned fruit cocktail. Table syrup only condiment for pan cakes and waffles. Eggs barely passable. Sausage and ham were actually quite good, bacon was salty from what I was told. Over all if you are hungry, and not worried about quality it is an okay place. Wouldn't recommend the place for much more. Next time would spend the money and eat elsewhere. One final thing, all drinks are for a price, only bottled water offered.

“Big Disappointment”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

I went there with friends for what we hoped would be a nice dinner. However when we ordered our beverage we found out that it is not their "policy" to serve water. Instead we had to BUY bottled water for $3 per bottle. Absurd !! According to the website there was a large variety of items. However it turned out there was about half the choice of the website. All the food containers still had the lids on them and there was no signage above so you had no idea what was in them until you took the lids off. All the lid handles were hot enough to burn you (nothing in the way of pot holders for protection) and also some of the spoon handles were hot. This is definitely a safety issue. We will NEVER go there again !!!! Their water policy is yet another way to gouge the customer. Very disappointing.

“What you would expect from a buffet”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

We ate here for breakfast. It had a decent variety of food. Scrambled eggs, toast, breakfast meats, pancakes, waffles and french toast. Not too many choices for light food. Oatmeal and some mixed fruit. The price was only $6.99 per person, but if you order something to drink, even water, be prepared to spend another $3-$4. Still not bad for about $10 per person. Service was ok and restaurant seemed pretty clean. If you found this review helpful in any way, please click helpful review.

“Good Value”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

Went for dinner buffet Sun May 11. Great roast beef, and shrimp salad to die for. Chicken wings were mild and tasty... not a lot of meat on them but hey you can go back as often as you like.

Like other posters here, was a bit of a Surprise when tried to order two glasses of ice water... only to find out they only had bottled water... Niagara Falls has run out of tap water???

So we did what any fun customers would do... we ordered two glasses of ICE... and asked our waitress to toss them in the microwave :)

Reasonable selection of fresh fruit, and desserts including incredible nanaimo bars.

We'll be back.

Reviewed May 9, 2014

Had breakfast - reasonable priced! No eggs to order-but overall good selection. Probably wouldn't return.
