Mediocre. Feel more like herding cattle they are so busy. They were out of many things on the buffet and salad and dessert bar, ice cream machine empty...waitress was good but sooo busy. Not an enjoyable 'dining experience'

I taked with Ms. Darla, the group booking manager. She was very helpful and understanding. Our group consists of thirty people.She offered a very good group price and arranged a specific staff to attend our tables. Very good place to dine and very good service.
