Great as always! Been coming here for 25 years. Definitely pass up a seafood buffet and get the Sam and Omie platter. You will be stuffed and the food is so good. Priced appropriately also. They should add a kids me menu though.

I don't know that is absolutely a fact but I would assume with high probability that they do. You may want to contact them directly.
