We arrived at 11:30 AM and the breakfast buffet was still up. The few lunch items available were old and over cooked. I have had good meals here several times but was very disappointed with the quality and value of this meal.

If you like buffets this should be your kind of place. It isn't my favorite place to eat, but the rolls fresh from the oven are delicious! The salad bar is ok. My kids like the desserts...mainly the soft served ice cream.

Typical all you can eat fare, my buddy got sick, some form of food poisoning, he says. I did not. Saying all this, I won't go back, there are better choices out there.
