    Food was pretty good and there were lots of options. However the prime rib didn't taste that great and the gravy spoiled it even more. Where's the au jus? I found the ambience to poor for a casino resort. They improve the ambience by getting classier tables and maybe have a quiet section.

    Everything’s good. My family just wished there were sushi during this time as my was looking forward to eat sushi from this place. My big family usually comes here occasionally. But other than, it was good.

    Salads were fresh, seafood was ok, roast beef and ham were tender. Roasted little potatoes were the best. Enjoyed the variety but some hot food sitting were over cooked. Pasta had good flavour but over cooked, vegetables were soft and over cooked. Asian soup was good and hot. Sushi was nice. Nice variety of desserts but I just had the soft vanilla ice cream in a waffle cone which was a good finisher. The cone was crispy good. Bonus having beverages included, hot or cold and pop. Service staff was excellent. Easy and convenient for a large group but they auto tack on 18%gratuity

    This delightful venue provided a relaxing setting for my family and me to spend quality time together without feeling hurried. The buffet-style dining allowed us the freedom to help ourselves to food at our own pace, without any interruption from waitstaff.

    Servers, carving table, hotess, were all perfect. Food flavour was acceptable but variety was lacking for the price. Desserts redeemed the meal.
