Food is great homemade style buffet! Lots of choices! A bit pricey that's why it's 4 stars. My son who doesn't eat anything ate two full plates of food. Salad, entrees, deserts. Attentive waiter! Good times!

Our neighbor at the campground sent us here and we are glad they did. Sampled just about everything they had! We left full and it didn't break the bank.

We found there to be an excellent choice of fresh foods. the salad bar was all fresh and the hot food bar was hot as well. No shortage of selections for anyone and no reason to leave hunger. Even the dessert selection was great.
