Ate their Christmas buffet this year...$16 a person, not worth $6 a person! Watery gravy, tiny little slices of pumpkin pie, dried out turkey breast. Will not eat there again, ever.

I loved being able to get a wide variety of menu items here at all hours of the night. Quality, prices, and service were excellent. Servers Ivory and Amanda were both great. I would go again if I lived closer.
