Tried this place. Absolutely nasty. I guess of this is the only place close around you just settle. Food was cold. We found hair in some of the food as well. Will not come back.

Lots of breaded dishes, and brown sauces, which for many is a good thing. Not for my wife (gluten allergy). Got to admit, best ice cream of any buffet I've ever seen. Grandkids loved it, adults said OK.
