This buffet rocks. We ate there for breakfast and everything was perfect. Great selection and very clean. Wonderful atmosphere with the large screen displays of travel destinations. Service was awesome. Well worth the money and a great value.

With an extensive selection this buffet is without doubt one of the greatest values in town. The service is excellent, lineups if any are quick, the tables are clean and cleaned up quickly. All in all a lovely experience.
