My wife and I ate at Mason Street twice on different nights to try their buffets; once on Monday for the Souther Style buffet and once on a Tuesday for their Chinese buffet. Both times were a big disappointment. Most dishes were either too lightly seasoned or way overdone. Most of the meat dishes were overcooked and dried out...even the white rice was dry. The spring rolls were mostly wrapper with little, if any, filling. The precut desserts were mostly dried out and even the chocolate ice cream had a very artificial taste. It is really surprising because the food at Gregory's and at the Town Square Buffet is really good. Too bad the same cannot be said for Mason Street Courtyard. We won't be going back there, at least not for the buffet.

When my husband and I ate here for the first time, the hostess in the front didn't really impress me much. I thought they had no clue of why they were working there to begin with. They had no personality, their energy was very negative. then we waited for good 10mins before anyone came over to us at the bar to say hello and despite that I thought, we should still go ahead and eat so we can taste the food. The creamy chicken soup was the bomb and the chicken wings needed a little more salt and pepper.

We chose this place due to the ranking on T.A. wrong......
I ordered the chicken fried steak and it was inedible. The meat tasted as if it had gone bad, I refused to eat it. The vegies were overcooked frozen mixed veggies and the gravy was excessively salty. Our server was very nice. When he gave us our bill though, all that was taken off was our drinks. We'd had 2 sodas, nothing else. The sodas were the only things not disgusting. Would never eat here again.

The food was great and the service was great also especially the shrimp scampi. This will be one of favorite places to come. Great job to Chef.

We haven’t had walleye since visiting North Dakota and we weren’t disappointed! They were other choices like deep fried shrimp and clams, fried trout that was slightly dry. But as I said, we came for the Walleye.
