Prices of drinks are very expensive. $13 for a jug of soda and $18 for two small bourbon bottles is rediculous. Also would love to see a bigger salad and cold meat selection would be great !. Otherwise food is wonderful .

Thought the service was great - tables cleared quickly. Food was nice although disappointed that the steak was well overdone. Food kept stocked up and was very nice - great variety.

We were a bit uncomfortable due to not being able to move from our table till the other table moved. We did ask the people if they could move their chairs in, yet they may have not understood.

Was awesome, fully packed which was great. The only issue was the ice cream machine ran out and took about 5-10 minutes to refill which was annoying for the kids otherwise loved it and would be back.

Staff give a warm welcome, and allow you the freedom to help oneself to the buffet. Tables are regularly cleared of used crockery and all runs smoothly.
