They advertised peel and eat shrimp yet I never found it. I asked a manager and was told it was on the salad bar. Well I must be blind and dumb because I sure could not find it. Neither could my wife and friends. It...More

There is plenty of parking, except for the handicap. Our group went for dinner and happy to say the buffet was stocked well. The cleanliness was not quite up to par, though. They have reasonable prices and discounts for seniors, 60 and above. Food: Salad...More
