I really like the super food in the small lunch buffet when taking a new customer out. They can get what they want, you control the price since it is a buffet. It is reasonable with top notch service. Don’t forget the rum cake....

The service was outstanding, the baked halibut with lemon sauce was prepared perfect and the complementary rum cake was "melt in you mouth perfect"
