You can catch a fresh buffet for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, seven days a week. Though the Waterfront Restaurant has a menu offering appetizers and entrees, the buffet eclipses these fine selections. With fresh soups and salads to pasta selections, you'll have to make a second trip especially for the main course, prime rib and crab legs. Ice cream and gourmet cakes such as Tiramisu are available for dessert, though it might be difficult to not fill up on the exquisite first and second courses.
