The waitress was less than attentive. We cleaned our own table. We were finally asked what we wanted to drink 15 minutes after we sat down. Took another 10 to get them to. We never saw her again after that.

Went for dinner on a Sunday evening. Apparently half the restaurants in Carlsbad are closed on Sunday's. There was a salad bar and buffet. I started with salas thinking there would soon be fresh pizza to replace the disgusting dried up ones that were there....More

The only thing that bumped this review from 0 to 2 was the waiter in the dining area. He was very helpful and was trying hard to make us happy. He bussed a table just for us, and took a lot of time to help...More

Black olives that taste of the water in the tin are awful. Every thing else is also likewise packaged. Domino's has better pizza (surprise!).

The whole building should be burned down due to the filthiness. The service is horrible. Old food, we asked if new food was going to be but on the buffet they said yes after the old is eaten. Salad was brown. Stay away

We stopped in here on our way to the caverns. At 11:30 am, there was no pizza on the buffet. Everyone was having to get food off the salad bar. We waited about 20 minutes for more pizza to be brought out. Our waitress got...More

We stopped in here because we were famished from touring the caverns all day. We're from NY so we have a certain idea when we think pizza. This isn't it. This pizza was more like cardboard pizza. The toppings were nice and the flavor, just...More

Not the greatest ambiance, but the pizza was fresh (aside from the canned mushrooms) and the crust was really good. I prefer local rather than chain restaurants. You can't go wrong with the pizza at this place.

This also seemed to be a place that the locals frequented. The buffet was nice, and had lots of salad choices. We were there on a weeknight, and it seemed like they were busier than expected, and only one waitress was there. The selection of...More
