We had an overnight getaway, and the epic buffet was to be our big meal of the trip and it was a very bad experience. The food was overcooked and dry. The dessert appeared old as they were collapsed on their plates

Great choices but many items are over salted. Great dessert selection and a great place to come if you want to indulge.

Sunday brunch featured many choices... eggs cooked to order and self made toast were probably the best and hottest options. Everything else was fairly cold and many items were browned over and hard on top from sitting too long. For noontime on a Sunday it was very slow, maybe 6 other patrons in the whole restaurant... Service was friendly enough... More

I've gone here multiple times. I love the idea of a buffet with many different types of foods to offer so that you can satisfy whatever you're craving. Every time I go here, I leave disappointed. The food is sometimes cold, they'll run out of things and act rude when you ask them if they'll have more, and I never... More

I was pleasantly surprised at the good quality of the food being offered here. Every option I tried was properly prepared and was delicious. They even had Steamship Round that was rare--the way I like it--which is hard to find at a buffet because they usually over cook it. The server was very friendly and was super attentive checking with... More

This buffet has gone downhill. Especially the last few years. Food cold, tasteless. Just updated the buffet and it went further downhill. Every update the food gets worse.

They have tried to stay afloat by changing things around, dropping the prices yet removing the crab legs was simply the last straw to declaring this as nothing special. The problem is it's one of only a few buffet's in the area and most folks just don't know any better. If you have ever enjoyed a buffet, even at other... More

Was not impressed with the buffet. It may have been that we ate later but, the food was not that great.
