Iam glad I didn't read the reviews otherwise we wouldn't have gone. Food was good, with a good selection. The restaurant and food areas were clean and tidy and the food was always topped up. Even though they had a large group the service was great and what you would expect for a buffet restaurant. For the 4 or so... More

When we got There we had to wait for them to set up and set the food out, food wasn't great. Bit of a disappointment

Paid alot of money for my family and I and the food was TERRIBLE. Meat was dry, the selection was poor and so on. I will never return. It might be worth it if the price was $7per person

Yes, I was willing to give this restaurant a try but looking inside the doorway at all the amusement machines - like a games arcade, it put me off no end so I went else where. What business are they in? Is the food so ordinary the activities have to make up for it?

Food was terrible. No selection and either overcooked chips or undercooked chicken drumsticks. Advise to stay away.

Good Selection of food with very attentive staff. The food has definitely improved and were very happy with our last visit. Something that we would like to see come back is the steaks as this was always one of our favourites. The food has improved and was delicious.

Food is below average, especially for how much you pay now (prices have gone up since I last went which was years ago), I know it's a buffet restaurant but the selection to choose from is disappointing. I'd rather go to McDonalds to be honest.

Valentines Hamilton is not even a shadow of what it was in the past. We are glad we looked at the assortment of food before deciding if we were going to dine there. Never again!
