The buffet was amazing. Lots of fruits and veggies and great pizza. Best crust I've had. Very crispy. Made my tummy very happy. Good service. I would love to come back again.

This is a favorite in town buffet, always fresh and they will order special pizza upon request. Salad bar is awesome as well. Customer Service is up to standard level as well. Friendly wait staff.

Lunch visit with clean, fresh salad bar with variety of selections that are well stocked. Pizza bar has variety but not as tasty as salad side. Menu available at this popular spot.
