Nothing to write home about. Average at best. Went there in season and only one other couple eating when we came in and only one couple when we left. Place was clean and we got full so all is well, I guess.

I don't agree with some of the previous reviews on this place. I actually liked the buffet. There was a good selection of food and it all tasted pretty good. The restaurant was clean and the staff was friendly

Disgusting buffet. This place was recommended by a friend and the ratings were good here but what we found was very bad food. Definitely no healthy options on buffet.
