Two adults for a Sunday lunch, the buffet has a good mix of vegetables and different types of chicken, with a couple of beef items, but mostly chicken. We found the temperature of a few items could be warmer and taste was average. If you are looking for just a casual weekend lunch with good seating and low background noise... More

Happened to find this gem by accident while taking a day trip to the mid coast region. We were please not surprised by the variety and quality of the food. Nothing was greasy or overloaded with MSG. You don't accually taste the food. Well worth the stop.

We have eaten here many, many times and last night's experience is probably my last visit. Overall, the food on the steam tables was COLD. The fish dishes (salmon, fried fish, crab legs) were absolutely terrible. The crab legs were inedible - watery, cold and devoid of meat. I think they may actually have used the rejects from other restaraunts.... More

I was so happy to find a buffet close to where I live. Coming from Las Vegas, the king of buffets I had high hopes and maybe too high of expectations. The buffet itself had a good selection of items that suited everyone's tastes. Unfortunately most of their items seemed like they had been out for too long. Some people... More

Went with my dad for dinner. All of the sauces tasted the same on the different chicken dishes. Sushi and hot and sour soup was good. Appetizers were typical. Good ice cream selection.

Ok buffet. I ate late on a Sunday evening so much of food was refreshed. Some items were decent but nothing stood out. I think the $13.95/person was a little steep for the quality.
