“Very Disappointing !”
Reviewed 21 December 2012

After seeing the very promissing advertisement: "Kelowna's Best and Largest Buffet" with a great picture of it, we gave it a try! The selection was minimal and what was there, was less then half empty. The buffet was the smallest we ever have seen. The taste was less then average. We will never give it a try again! only the service was ok !

“Needs to improve”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

Used to be amazing - now is rather tired and pedestrian. Decor not updated for years and nothing inspiring re food choices - a lot of same old/same old. Also awkward layout to buffet and I completely missed some choices. Will still try again - service friendly. Has been years since there - likely will be years again now.

“30 years and going strong”
Reviewed 27 August 2012

Never knew it'd open that long for over 30 years! I go quite often with a group of friends after ball practice, or just do take out for the group of us. Service is always friendly and food is very consistent. I noticed that the okanagan Sun football players go all the time as well.Favorite is definitely the Ruby pork.
