This is another of many summers visiting Carlson's and again eating the seafood and prime rib buffet. It was so tasty. This family owned Restaurant has been around a long time. They always had great fish fries on Fridays. Still do. All the food was fresh and warm and constantly being refilled even though the place was very busy. The only thing I missed was the fresh fruit at the salad bar and no vinegar and oil dressing. Also really missed a baked potato. Not everyone wants mashed or fries. Our waitress was so cheery and quick to serve and refill water, taking dirty plates away, etc. We ate our fill and couldn't fit another bite. The Prime Rib was done perfectly. Would definitely recommend the buffet and at $13.99 for all you can eat, it's a real deal. Kids are discounted up to a certain age. But get there early, we always go at 4 to avoid the rush. If you wait until 5 you will be waiting in the bar for table!
