The meals are always good, do try the Wedding cake for desert, it's sinful. I have never had a problem with service and usually the servers go the extra mile to make you comfortable.

The breakfast buffet is 7 days a week and is $5.99 for 55+. The hours for the restaurant is 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. I'm not sure what time breakfast ends and lunch begins (call them at 813-752-7763).
