Wonderful service, delicious food, atmosphere is relaxed. Wide variety of food. You can get all you can eat, or just get a one trip. You also have the option of desert bar only, salad bar only, or veggie.

The breakfast buffet is 7 days a week and is $5.99 for 55+. The hours for the restaurant is 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. I'm not sure what time breakfast ends and lunch begins (call them at 813-752-7763).
