Not a huge choice of food, but if it were better quality i would not mind. Green beans, carrots clearly dumped from a giant can and heated. Pretty bland food to cater to all types/ages. Teens at the carving station were tentative, and not really good at it, so it took three "shaves" to equal a portion. Sweet and baked... More

It used to be a lot better. Honestly I did not enjoy any of the food and more than half of it was cold. They were slow to put new things out and I was surprised because it was a Saturday during lunch so I thought it would be busy. Not going to spend my money here again but I... More

We went here for lunch. The price was reasonable and the food was ok. Nothing exceptional but it tasted good. They have a good variety of food to choose from (full salad bar, cold salads,taco bar, meats, potatoes, pizza, veggies, rolls, and dessert). The food was constantly being replenished. I think everyone would be able to find something they'd like.... More

We decided to cross the border, to buffalo and had eaten at this buffet restaurant before. We decided to try again. A lot of the food was fried, something i wouldn't eat. Fried chicken, spare ribs covered in a lot of sauce. Brisket roast beef was good according to my husband. I didn't try it. A big salad bar. Mashed... More

Exactly what you would expect - not fancy, but food was plentiful, refilled often and yummy. The corn-bread stuffing and fried chicken could be a meal on their own. The salad bar had plenty of choice, as did the dessert section. The staff were quick to greet you, and picked-up the dirty/used dishes quickly.

so many types of food, chinese, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, ribs, fish rice, bread pudding...the choice was huge for less than $10! The restaurant is clean, spacious and a place you will revisit. Excellent choice!

Its freezer foods warmed up and served for an expensive price. I have been there because my kids wanted to go. I felt ripped off the first time yet I tried again. Stupid me. The food is frozen and instant at best. the mac and cheese might as well be soup. the slices of " meat" might as well be... More

My husband and I went here a month ago. We will not go back. First of all we had a coupon for one free dinner. No where on the coupon did it say we had to buy a drink. The cashier automatically charged us for 2 drinks which we did not want because we do not drink pop. She had... More
