Absolutely the worst food you can imagine and the place is filthy!! If I could give it zero stars I would. They do have a large selection but the quality of the food is sub-par. I tried the sushi (which the guys rolling it had...More

Love the decor. Huge fruit & veggie selection. Fresh sushi. Everything you can think of are your only choices. Very good experience. Room for big groups.

The Journey was okay, but not impressive. We've been several times in the past. It has changed and we probably won't go back. Yes, it is all you can eat and has a large selection, but the food was overlooked, bland and not fresh. The...More

Average food. Nothing out of the ordinary for a buffet. The shrimp was just okay and the crab was soggy making it hard to crack.

The Journey is a great seafood buffet, however it does have some major downsides. First, they don't allow reservations for large groups. Which causes extremely long waiting times. I would be fine with even giving credit card number to reserve our table. If the group...More

Instead of "The Journey," my family calls this place the "Chocolate Fountain," as that is what we love most about this place. They have a chocolate fountain with different things for dipping - strawberries, marshmallows, etc. They also have a great assortment of seafood, salads,...More
