I've been to many buffets. The great ones serve a reasonable number of dishes...a number they can handle, keep refreshed and keep clean. The bad ones offer every blessed thing from soup to nuts and no one keeps the stations tidy. This buffet is more of the latter. They used to have a FABULOUS seafood buffet on Friday nights but...

My wife and I went on a Sunday night and the food wasn't great at all. Maybe it was the night of the week, but the food plates were not refreshed and the food looked like it had been sitting out all day or even all weekend. I am sure I won't be back.

Had dinner at Timbers with my wife and it was just OK. Salads and soup are good. Pasta bar is nice but food is bland and watery. Good variety of other foods but just ok in taste. Desert area is good. Sunday Bruch is the best time to come to this buffet.

I was with a small group of women and we attended for breakfast. The potato cakes were the best I have ever had! We had excellent service and plenty of options for a brunch buffet.

We had a coupon for free brunch at it was still overpriced. The biggest problem was a staff chef that was working the entire room with a filthy white chef jacket at an open wound on her left hand. Federal and state health codes prohibit an open wound with gauze wrap from being near food or utensils. There was no... More

The buffet offers an extensive range of items in various stations. The service is very efficient and the servers are very friendly. There is a choose your own pasta dish to order on weekends. Desserts are very good.

Certainly not the best buffet but not a really bad one either. Average type food with not much taste. We have visited several times during the past year and the quality of food doesn't change. Also, the items on the menu are the same old, same old.

First off I am not big fan of buffets. My wife on the other hand normally enjoys them. We have been to this particular one several times. This time was bad as was the last time.. Ok so its a Saturday evening around 6:30 pm, we have to wait. Understandable because it is their prime time. so an hour later... More
