Great food and great service. When we ate at the buffet I really didn’t know which plate to start from. Everything was splendid..

Our tour bus pulled up unexpectedly today! The servers were all friendly and courteous. Most of us had the buffet that was filled with hot, fresh food. The salad bar was stocked up and the veggies and dessert were also fresh and plentiful! Thanks so much for the great food and service for our surprise bus full of guests!
