Variety of foods. Excellent desserts. Food in buffet is always hot and trays are never half full. Only problem is the long lines on some days around 7:30pm. Could take 30-50 minutes to be seated.

If you are a buffet lover and like a variety of foods this is the place. Price is fair for what you get. Gets crowded so be patient. Atmosphere is Las Vegas style buffet. Service is excellent. A great night out.

Always look forward to taking a break for lunch at the Ranch House Buffet. A great selection of entrees, a great salad bar (except I have to bring my own lo cal dressing), great soups and unfortunately very tasty deserts.
