8 adults and just as many children are no problem for this place. They pumped out pizzas and picked up empty plates quickly. Check this place out if you ever need to feed a big group.

Plenty of food although the dessert pizza is often down to just a few slices of one flavor. Really wish they'd keep biscuits out on the buffet instead of having to special order them.
