“Overwhelming Selection of Food”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We ate at Toucan Charlie's on Father's Day, and the price, $21pp, was a great deal for a meal with so many choices.
The line was relatively short at 9am (although beware--when we left at 11, the line was incredibly long).
Service was reasonable; the staff was friendly; they were quick to please when they were available.
The choices were stunning (as you can see from the numbers of posts regarding this buffet): taco/burrito bar, crab legs and other sea food, chinese selections, prime rib and flank steak, dessert bar, salad bar, and a multitude of breakfast selections. For a large buffet, the food wasn't too institutionalized and tasted fairly fresh.

“Excellent buffet”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

This buffet had it all. Crab legs were what drew us in. The price was right. T was 21$pp the night we were there. Plenty of crab legs,smoked salmon, prime rib..plenty Mexican, Asian, and Italian choices. They also ave a nice salad bar and desert bar.
We got there at 8:50 pm and they close at 0900pm. They pull the food at 930p. The customer service was still good even that late in the shift. The employees were helpful while cleaning and you could get your food and have it on table prior to them closing. They said it did not matter how long you were there.
There were many choices,and the food was fresh and good. It was the best buffet I have been to in a long time.

We had their Sunday brunch buffet which included everything from crab legs to awesome bacon. Get there early and stay a long time and enjoy all of it.

“Wednesday Is A Great Night To Visit”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

It costs a few dollars more per person to eat at this buffett on Wednesday night's, but the excellent crab, steak, and prime rib make the extra cost worth it. If you are 55 or older, you can get a 10 percent discount on entry.
