We waited for over an hour for food. The place was not very busy. The meals were edible but nothing good and all of our fries were cold. If you ask very nicely, they might give you a drink refill. We left and ate at some fast food so we could get full.

Got breakfast with our package deal. It was good about what you expect for a hotel buffet breakfast. Employees were very friendly. You have to get there early cause it is very crowded.

The food was great. The service was slow. My father had a BLT that they put ham and horseradish on. He wasn't thrilled with that. It just took almost an hour to get our food and the server got the drinks wrong 3x.

We ate supper & breakfast here while we stayed at Big Splash Adventure. Supper was very good & reasonably priced. Our breakfast buffet was free & was wonderful with a good variety of food!

Except for breakfast it is basically a breakfast place with a few choices for lunch. Wait staff needs training and it took more time than you would expect to receive our food.

Great food and huge portions! We loved it. My husband had a BBQ Bacon cheeseburger and says it is one of the best he has ever had. We will be back!

Appetizers were great. Burgers were fine. Funnel cake fries for dessert were yummy. Our server was friendly and able to answer questions about local area.
