When I called to reserve a table for the buffet the person told me the parking was $10 but it really was $20. When we got our table the hostess kept on hitting our chairs and bumping in to us when we tried to get food. It's sad to say the hallway in my house had more room then you did in the buffet line. Also when I asked about drinks they told me on the phone that water and soda was included in the price and come to find out soda was a extra charge. Also don't forget the fact a can of sardines had more room then in the elevator. Was not worth the 3 hour drive to go to. Was a waste of time and money. Was not a great way to spend our anniversary.

My family came all the way from montreal for the view and the food. We were all extremely disapointed.
