This time they had really good soups. The soups were both of my favorites, and just the right consistency. As always, the salad bar was great. My husband eats regular food, and I eat salads and soups. Yet the fresh rolls are luscious.

Not much good to say about it. Typical cafeteria style food...it all tastes the same. I wish I could report something much better but I can't honestly say it's worth going to. Yuk

We have been here on other occasions and always find the service and the food to be great. For a buffet one might one might not expect attentive service but the servers here are always anxious to refill drinks and make sure everything is OK....More
