“Not Bedrock Wilma”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

My kids were keen for an all-you-can buffet and we happened by this one on the way into Drumheller. I was not sure what to expect as the exterior looked somewhat dated but there was a good flow of people into the restaurant.

Our service was good and for 7pm there were many people at the buffet and tables. The selection of food was decent and there was always food being brought out to refresh the bins on the buffet. However, I would say I was disappointed in the quality of the food. Many of the meats just had too much fat left on and several selections were deep fried with too much batter. I know it is hard to run a buffet from an owners perspective and still stay in business, but given the cost to quality ratio I think I will try somewhere different next time.

“Good stop for lunch or dinner”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This has the best buffet in Drumheller, by far. For small/medium town in Alberta, this has a good variety in Chinese and always some interesting Western as well. The staff are very friendly, Sandy and her family are great! Don't sit near the windows in deep winter--drafty. This is a friendly local stop and comfortable.
