    The Prime Rib and Seafood buffet was a very good value for the price. There were 2 items we think needed better attention. 1st, the fried chicken, while very crispy and tasty, was a bit too greasy. The buffet pan needs a rack in it to keep the chicken from sitting in the grease. 2nd, the dinner rolls were sitting in a hot buffet pan so the bottoms were hard. Otherwise, we really enjoyed the variety. We had one member of our party that did not eat seafood but was very happy with the options available. The Prime Rib was perfectly cooked, with horseradish sauce and au jus. The mashed potatoes were also very good. Two members of our party ordered the add-on crab legs, 1.5 pounds perfectly steamed and seasoned, plenty for 2 to share. They were worth the additional cost. The dessert options that are included are a nice touch. Overall, a great meal, we will be back. One other small suggestion, have a drink menu that includes wine, beer, and cocktails. Thank you.

    It had been a while since we did a brunch, this Mother's Day brunch was perfect. I have got to add the omelet was the best I had enjoyed in years! So full of flavor! Everyone was so nice and I loved seeing all the mom's dressed up. Doesn't happen a lot in my life. We will definitely be back. Hopefully, sooner than later.

    I took my mom here for Sunday Brunch this past Sunday for Monday days. We both was sick the next day. The food was good, but I don’t believe it was cooked all the way and some of the warmers was not working because most of our food was not hot.

    Appreciate them for accommodating us even though we were 15 minutes late to our reservation thanks to traffic. Variety of food selection. Taste was ok. Paid $40 per person for Mother's Day brunch and I don't think it was worth $40, but it is what it is. Waitress was pleasant and attentive. Staff very friendly.

    The food was fair. They did some dishes well like the veggies, mashed potatoes, biscuits and the egg Benedict and the fruit cocktail. Several items were cold. The scrambled eggs were tasteless, bacon extremely overcooked, waffle station not affective. Overall, it was a ok. Sever was very pleasant and the tables were very close together.

    Food was disappointing. Many items were gone and not replaced such as the ham, deviled crab, many deserts. Food was not worth the price. When I complained, I was told we were at the last seating. They should have told us certain foods were out before we sat down.

    Was not worth $40 Advertised a waffle station and there was not one, mgr. claimed it was not their fault but the vendors. I beg to differ, in my opinion, as a mgr\owner it is your responsibility to find a vendor that will produce the products you are advertising or notify the public via your website that this food item will not be available so we are not misled, especially those with children. GIGI's had months to prepare for this Easter Brunch The food quality was comparable to a diner. Definitely not worth $40 a PP. I personally ate only about $10 worth since there were not many great options. Will

    Food is mediocre for the most part, with a few items (boiled shrimp, steak, and mussels) being good. Service was good. Crab legs are an expensive add on ($25) that was not expected. If you want quantity over quality, this is your place.

    This place has definitely changed and not for the better. First off YOU DO NOT HAVE TO EAT THE BUFFET TO GET THE CRAB LEGS. Our server (who didn’t speak good English) made it seem as if you had to do the seafood Buffett to get the crabs at 24.95. Secondly THE CRABS ARE NOT ALL YOU CAN EAT. I definitely would have just gotten the crabs had it been explained that way. AFTER paying my tab i spoke with im assuming the chef who could have cared less long as we paid. Says alot about this place. Horrible service. Small crabs. Definitely will never be back here. Go at your own risk

    Food was good, service was great. Disappointed to learn the crab legs are no longer part of the buffet. While crab legs were available to be ordered, it came at an additional charge. That being said, the buffet price itself remains quite high despite no longer offering the top item. Enjoyable experience overall, though unlikely to return unless already otherwise there for a comedy show. (Or if the crab legs make a triumphant return to the buffet)

    Buffet. Sat. Nite, no res. needed. Only 8 people in place. Fried chicken so hard I could not eat it. Au Jus had lots of things floating in it. No taste. Had better food in Golden Corral. Gigi charged $32.50 for a horrible buffet. Fried shrimp looked like Mrs. Paul's. Mashed potatoes were cold and very lumpy. Never again. Carved Meat was tough. No music. Boring place.

    We have been going to Gigi's for years but had not been in a while. It was so sad to see how bad it has become. The menu was very limited, they serve frozen fried shrimp and crab cakes that appeared to have come right out of the box. Golden Corral has a better salad bar. The prime rib was so rare that it was still mooing. No form of potatoes, just watery mac & cheese and yellow rice. The dessert table is gone and they don't have all the deserts on the waitress's list. An additional $25 for a cluster of crabs. The worst insult was you could not book a seating on line after 5:00, yet when we left at 6:00 the restaurant was half empty. Bottom line... $70 for a party of two. It was the second worse buffet we have ever had. Shoney's in Franklin, NC still holds the record, but not by much. I must commend our Asian waitress. I did not catch her name, but she was very attentive and sweet.

    It was the smallest buffet for the highest price that I have ever had. On the website it said all you can eat crab legs for an additional price but was not the case website needed to be corrected. The food was dried out wasn't good at all. The only positive thing I could say was the manager was extremely nice and gave us tickets to the comedy zone show for the inconvenience.

    The menu was changed, and not to the better in my opinion. They removed the prime rib and replaced it with a tenderloin that was pretty chewy. The server went way over to keep us happy and did a very good job. Overall it was good but I went there instead of Fogo de chow because I wanted prime rib.
