Once again, my favorite (Danny's Delight?) is so large that I can usually finish about half in one sitting. There is ample seating and free drink refills. I had their hamburgers twice and like them, but I prefer the subs.

Where else can you buy cotton candy grapes? Wegmans! They have it all. Wegmans has the freshest produce, a bakery, meat counter, fresh seafood and an eatery. You can have a hot meal, order from the burger bar or pizza counter, or go through the buffet for Asian or American food, or the salad bar. The Ready to Go Meals... More

The buffet items can in eaten in Wegman's or taken out. Dining areas are inside and out. A wide variety of Asian dishes are available. Items include a vegetable food island, fried chicken, pizza, and a burger bar. Wegmsn's is similar to Whole Foods. The negative factor is that the prices have become unreasonably high.

One of the largest grocery stores I've been in. Their salad/entree bar had good variety and sugar was not a ubiquitous ingredient (like it was at the Wegmans in Erie, PA). The dishes I had (mostly) tasted as I expected and everything seemed fresh. Lots of seating on the second level.

This place is similar to whole foods over priced and over rated. i would not recommend to get your groceries. the food at this place has wide variety but its overpriced. they should have a better way of pricing the buffet.

Although there's plenty of selection the food here is very middle of the road and rather boring. It's also very overpriced for what you get. To be avoided unless there's no other choice.

Fish was incredible. Mushrooms were bad. Green beans were average . Burgers were way too small. Fries were wonderful. Truly a mixed bag

Everything was great for our lunch. They seem to have eliminated any Italian options and have more Asian options in the buffet. I loved the Sesame Chicken. It was so tender! Had great crab soup. No complaints for a buffet.

There is a burger bar (excellent), pizza (good value), subs, a large buffet and home cooking meals. Quick and reasonably priced. You pay by the pound at the buffet. Can choose a main course with 2 sides for about $7. There are wings and crab cakes that you can buy and microwave. Upstairs they have a lot of seating.

Dinner can get pricey if you go by weight. Atmosphere and variety are fantastic though. They have outdoor seating too!

Thank Eric S
