SUPER overpriced for a ridiculously bland buffet, absolutely zero flavour in any of the dishes. Take the extra time and drive out of town for a good meal. This place is a complete rip off and taking advantage of tourists.

We had been warned that there were better choices but we were in a hurry . . . I ordered the fruit and yogurt bar (see photo) and coffee. One choice of very sweet yogurt and watermelon, pineapple (very good), canned peaches, grapes, basket fruits, and boiled eggs. Fruit was ok and yogurt sweet. But according to the menu coffee was included . . . but when the bill came, I was charged an additional $2.99 for the coffee. The waitress said it was a mistake on the menu. Looking back at the menu, I could have had the full buffet for $1 more since coffee was included with that according to the waitress. So . . . food quality only average and I feel like I was misled. If you go, get the buffet even if you do not want all that food . . . you'll come way out ahead.

In fairness, it was 2:30 in the afternoon but it was busy so they should have had the buffet stocked better. Broasted chicken was warm but flavorless. Rolls were cold and served out of a stainless steel bowl with no heat lamp to warm them. Husband had to wait on tortilla shells to fix a taco. There were no mashed potatoes until after I'd opted for some underdone gratin style sliced potatoes. Meatballs were ok but not hot. Pork roast(?) was covered in liquid...not identifiable until scooped out with a spoon. Husband tried little bits of several things trying to find something edible. Meatloaf was tough and tasted awful. Said it was the worst buffet he's ever had. Very disappointing. Wasted our money here.
Service was good as far as the waiter who brought our drinks and took our plates and the young man who seated us.

Horrible food, zero flavour! Chicken was just fat! Buffet was a huge rip off! I have never been so disappointed in my life. It felt wrong to even pay my bill.

Stopped in here for lunch after our Bryce hike. The service was super slow. We wanted the buffet but it was not a great selection and super crowded. So we ordered off the menu. The portions were very small for the price.
