It is clean, the waitress was attentive, the food wasn't bad and it wasn't great! What do you expect from an all you can eat buffet under heat lamps. Please don't expect fine dinning when you go to a buffet. Will I go back to...More

After reading all the glowing reviews, my husband and I were really looking forward to a dinner of pulled pork and sides. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived to find that it was shuttered and the telephone disconnected!
