Lots of food but the taste is average. No ambiance in the seating area. Price is reasonable. Service is average, they left us to pile our plates.

The people here are great, one of the best kept secrets of this buffet is that you can get custom orders. I prefer plain poached eggs instead of the hollandaise covered ones or the omelets, and they always take care of it with a smile....More

It's not cheap, but if you like a buffet, you need to try it. Quality is good for the most part. Great selection of different foods including deserts.

Good selection of American/Canadian food and Asian good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Always hot and fresh. Dessert selection could be better to get 5 stars. There is a great private room behind the food stations for business meetings that includes the food.
