We have been the last time. The food taste bland and taste like it is canned. They have a variety but it all taste the same. They do always have a crowd.

Food is great homemade style buffet! Lots of choices! A bit pricey that's why it's 4 stars. My son who doesn't eat anything ate two full plates of food. Salad, entrees, deserts. Attentive waiter! Good times!
