“Good food without waiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

We arrived late and hungry. It was really nice to be able to eat almost immediately. The meats - roast beef, ham, ribs, etc. - were excellent and you could have as much as you would like. Salad bar was conventional and the sides not too inspiring. The desserts looked awesome and it was tempting to have more than one. The lemon meringue pie I did have was excellent. I thought that $17 + 13% tax was a bit high, but it was our first meal on this trip and food in Canada proved to be rather costly.

“Excellent Facility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

The buffet is excellent. It had everything you could want, from soup, basic and fancy salads, ham and roast beef and a decadent dessert table,all you can eat and for a very reasonable price. Not only that, the food was cooked to perfection and the staff and owner were wonderful to chat with.

“Super quick”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Went there to try out the Sunday Brunch....however we didn't end up getting it. It is an all you can eat buffet but they serve you everything on the hot station like the eggs and sausage, bacon etc. Plus the majority of the offerings were "carbs" so for 14.95 it just didn't seem worth it. We ended up both getting the hungry man 3 eggs a big piece of ham 3 sausage links 3 bacon strips....for $8.50, you can't beat it

“Good Lunch and Evening Buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

The Carousel Restaurant has been in business for a long time and offers a formal dining room as well as a cafe type dining area. Both are served by the buffet as well as ala carte from the menu.
