Many varieties of Ethnic Choices. Weekly Theme Selection such as South American, Southern, Mexican and Special Seafood Day. Desserts better than most buffets.

After some hours of losing the family fortune, we had prearranged a lunch get-together with about 15 others. The Canopy Buffet has a nice atmosphere, perfectly lit in the dining area and more brightly lit over the food counters. There is more than enough seating....More
