We have had dinner on the fly twice here. It is a big place but well organized and well staffed so they manage it well. They have a couple of buffet lines with a diverse selection of choices. Very good quality food.

Asian, seafood, salad bar, pizza, etc, etc. choices, choices, choices! what we have had has been good. Plenty of parking. 2 for 1 pizza is a deal. Downside is plastic utensils and paper plates. Good choice if you are hungry while shopping.
