Despite the high price ($46), you would be hard pressed to find a better seafood buffet around. The selection is large, fresh and well prepared. Both the cold and hot stations are exceptional and the staff makes sure to keep the plates full. A definite...More

I believe it was about $40 per person. I personally believe it was not worth that price

The easiest is to take 294 to Willow rd. Go west on Willow rd and take a left onto Sanders Rd by the BP station. Take a right onto Winkleman and the hotel is just a few blocks up on the right.
