My wife and I have been here once. She liked the food but only some of the staff. I am not a fan of buffets, so not a place for me. The food was ok, I did like trying different things. We may go back but not any time soon.

It was our first visit and all the food was wonderful. The hostess even gave us a tour so we knew where everything was. We did not have one bad food item and there were four of us. I would highly recommend for a family. Chicken, pasta, salads, ice cream, breads, etc. You will not leave hungry.

Myself, my guy, his mom and 2 sisters ate here on 8/21/2014. The food was fresher the deserts were better than the one we eat at in Mentor OH. The staff was nice and there was a better variety of food choices.

It's a good idea to join the Crave connection to receive discount coupons and promos. My husband and I both ate for $12 because of their bogo coupon. They have a pretty good selection of foods and the fried chicken, steak and fish are really good. The selection of desserts is especially good and tastes great.

We made the mistake of having Christmas dinner here. I am not sure if this is the reason the restaurant looked like a trash disposal had erupted inside it or not. I had to ask for two glasses and two plates before someone could find me one that didn't have food on them. The meat warmers weren't working, so the... More

The price is pretty cheap. I liked some of the food, they have sliced beef and some fancy food but not a lot. The only con is that the variety in food is poor. Otherwise it was a great night.

When we travel we try to stay with place that we are familiar with and that we expect to get fresh and very good food. Our local one is in Rosemead/San Gabriel on Rosemead Blvd.. The food is always fresh and very good. The entrees can change daily. I love the bean/sausage soup, I would say it is really minestrone,... More

Food is not expensive but the quality is not that good either. If you're starving and don't have a lot of mulah, go ahead.

Seriously, you are not reading reviews to find out if a buffet restaurant is good, right? Take a look at who is standing in line to get in here, and then tell me if you want to have a body like that.
