Went for supper at the Diplomat with friends and had the buffet. The food was hot and delicious and our waiter Owen was very attentive and friendly with a great sense of humour.

Huge menu with delicious food that is consistent every day. Been to Fredericton many, many times, and always stop at Diplomat at least once, for dinner, breakfast or late night eats. They're always great service and consistent food.
