Pretty much what I expected for buffet service. Some great things, some meh things and several blech items. Hard to expect much more for a buffet, but $134 is a little high for the quality of food. Won't be back.

The food is excellent. The staff courteous and the second time around was even better. I will most definitely make a visit each trip. Plan to take my parents soon for the experience.

You could eat here every night for a week and never have the same thing. For such a large selection they do a great job with all of it. Everything was fresh and delicious !

I believe it depends on their age. If you give the restaurant a call they are very friendly and should be able to better answer. My party had 5 kids in it all various ages.
