Serving 300+ people at a time. Amazing...steaks were done in a very quick amount of time. Great options at the buffet. And the view was phenomenal. I wish that I had a bigger stomach for this one!

In my opinions steaks would be much better if they just grill it instead of deep frying it. And 29 $ for pitchfork steak fondue is too much. It is not worth it.

No. They do not have a full bar. Beer and wine is available for purchase at a small drinks cart located within the area. They take only cash.
