Was recommended to visit this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Friendly staff and a good choice of buffet food at a reasonable price. Seemingly all the locals go here which must be good.

This buffet is exceptional. Everything I tried was good. I've been on two cruises. The food at this buffet was better. Lol. Save your money and go to Marvin's.
