Being vegan all they offered was dry toast. They had oatmeal but already cooked with milk. This is a Marriott Hotel and all ready cooked?? My significant other had eggs and potatoes and they were soaked in butter to where she did not eat the potatoes. Kristian LaPlante offered to refund the meal and offered a free return visit but...

What a surprise this place was. We went on a Wed night so we did not do the seafood buffet. We had a great salad and dessert bar with a choice of 4 superb entrees in between. I choose the Prime Rib and it was one of the best I have ever had. They have a fun character interaction with... More

Food was very good, didn't expect the soup and the desserts to be my favorite part, but it was! Overall, the buffet was great and the value was very good. It was also great to meet Pluto and Goofy! Melanie, our server was fantastic, very prompt and helpful with everything!

I found this to be a really great buffet for everyone, and I felt like a little kid when Goofy walked over to greet us and offered to take a selfie.

Breakfast buffet was delicious and service was great! Definitely returning. We didn't have a reservation but were able to be seated immediately. Breakfast was until 11:30am which is perfect for the non-early risers :).

We decided to give Garden Grove a shot for dinner with the Saturday Night seafood buffet. It was ok. They bring halved lobsters and a small basket of hush puppies, fried shrimp and calamari to the table. The rest is a really small buffet. The lobster was quite disappointing but the hush puppies were awesome! The buffet had a good... More

The food here was ok. We had breakfast one morning and dinner another night. the breakfast buffet was good, the omelet station delicious. The dinner I felt was sub par for the price oyu were paying. The staff are friendly and attentive.

What a disappointment!! This was out last evening together and since it was Christmas, we expected a super meal, it didn't happen The green beans were so salty we could not eat them. The short ribs were so overcooked that you couldn't even cut them with a knife. The fish was horrible. For a special buffet, it was lacking tasty... More

The meal was not impressive in any way. The chicken was bland, no flavor. French fries almost cold. There was another dish which was good, though. Desert - looked good but none tasty. Characters (Minnie and Pluto) were friendly, but in a hurry (even though the restaurant was quite empty). At the end, coming together with a bill, options to... More
