Great food, meats served at your table and a buffet salad bar to rival anything ever experienced before. Great for couples, business meals or groups. Everyone is catered for and no one is left wanting.

Lunch has fewer meats brought around and it’s only about $7 cheaper. You still get all of the salad bar items. Drinks and desserts are separate.
