Lots of choices and food stations. for the size of the place, the food is okay, but not my kind of place, as I consider myself to be a discerning traveller. Staff friendly and attentive. Items in the store are reasonably priced.

Food was awesome as always. The place is always crowded, even during off peak meal times. The staff does a good job keeping things moving.

A huge selection of food and choice of soft drinks. Steaks are delicious even though the server was a bit sarcastic . Make sure to visit the gift shop downstairs. It contains everything from knick knacks to fine furnishings

I have had lunch and dinner and both were great. The lunch is less expensive so if you are on a budget, lunch may be better. I had a late lunch and was full for the rest of the day.
