Had dinner here. While it lacks the expansive buffet of many Disney buffet restaurants, it also lacks the shocking price. My family of four ate here for $80 + tax and tip. Not bad. The entrees were warm and tasty with 2-3 main dishes and...More

Not particularly... its a good buffet on standard nights but the extra cost for the seafood buffet doesn't seem worth it. Since they didn't correct our issue, we won't be going back. It's a shame because we used to go... More
