Still expensive after the discount but a bit worth it. Fish would be nice here for us vegetarians. Even as a vegetarian you can find something here to eat.

We enjoyed a special celebration which suited everyone's taste. Choices galore on the buffet and then the meat in little bits at a time or as many slices as u prefer. Highly recommend but be hungry.

Everything was excellent from the staff and servers to the food. We did the full Chao experience with dessert and drinks. We were not disappointed. Definitely a great place for a celebration.

Yes they do... it was currently $22. There is a parking lot very close.. used by mostly Macy's customers. And several other lots ranging from $5 for a half hour early bird to $20 for the day.
Two questions: 1. Is your restaurant kid friendly? 2. My son has a severe shell fish, fish and nut allergy. Can he be accommodated?

I would call the restaurant. There is an giant buffet and with a great variety of dishes, many of which had nuts and some fish elements. If the allergy is severe you may not want this environment.
