Great meal, great service. We got our fish broiled with a couple of sides. We are currently on Whole30 and found several compliant options.

We came for the Easter Buffet, and was highly disappointed. The food was soaked in the sauces it was made in. Very little flavor. It was not a huge selection either, and maybe, because we chose the later meal, it seemed they had already run...More
