We had a large group meet here for dinner. It's nice and very casual. I don't usually like buffets but it was the easiest choice with our group size. The food was pretty good. There were lots of choices. Everyone seemed satisfied.

I've been here a few times. The food is horrible. The "Fried" chicken is dried out and has no flavor. I can not say I have ever liked anything I ever ate their. Go to a different place to eat.
