Food was what you find on a buffet. They did not have prime beef, for the price they should. 2 people around 68.00. The service was good.

how much is it per person

Response from J5431WVjasonr | Reviewed this property |
A few months ago it was like $27 per person but we used a coupon b/f 5:00. We could have had it cheaper if we got there b/f 3:00 with coupon. Hope this helps. I was traveling when you sent this to me.

They only have a buffet. Snow crab was good, but all steak and prime rib were cooked to death!
