The pervasive thought about my first (and last) visit to Circa 1925 is that $35 is just too much to spend on a buffet, particularly this buffet! And evidently, the price will increase by a few dollars soon... The price does not include a beverage...More

We visited here last Saturday for the brunch buffet. The buffet items were hot and fresh, with plenty of things to choose from. The cost was $14.95 and worth it. The only thing I didn't like was the fact the kids, regardless of age, are...More

Leon, We require children to be 10 years old to dine in the buffet, which is why the prices are the same for adults as well as kids. Our prices will be going up August 1st, from $14.95 to $18.95 to offset rising food costs....More

Great spot with good food. Definitely a step above the typical buffet fare. The Blue Cheese mashed potatoes were excellent, and the prime rib, chicken and crab legs were great as well. Decor and ambiance is better than expected. Overall a wonderful time.

Nice night out. Not expensive. It's open area is not very convenient for food or drinks. They could be more people friendly. It really lacks in quality. The inside Saturday night dinner special is very good and has a lot to offer. Very good food...More
