It started with a rude manager and continued downhill from there. If you like bloody raw prime rib, then this is the place for you. It was a complete waste of money. Plenty of other places to eat in the area that doesn't cost $80 for 2.

I spent my 16th wedding anniversary at GiGi's eating crab legs and it was the best. Yet, the prime rib was a little rare for my taste.

We love the seafood buffet and selection. So much to choose from and you cannot beat the price. Definitely recommend if you love crab legs.

Our family went for Christmas Day Dinner. Staff were wonderful, but food selection was poor, and some food was cold. You could tell it had been in the warming trays for some time. For $39 per adult, it was definitely NOT worth it! We will be looking elsewhere next year.

We dined here last year and it was a better experience and the food itself was better. This year we decided to return but it was a disappointment at best. The service and servers were very good and pleasant. It went downhill from there. The food selection was acceptable but often cold. Some items were missing and others were OK, nothing great but acceptable. We were in a room that evidently was set up for an "overflow" of the main room. Last year we were in the main room. The food was at times, cold, overcooked and the presentation itself was not up to Ramada standards. Actually, Golden Corral would have at least had hot food available and that may be our option in the future. We had always associated Ramada with an upscale experience. This was not.

We went on Christmas Day for the special buffet...and what a fine selection was available for each of us. We were not rushed and the service was very good. Had a wonderful experience! A bit pricey at $32.95 pp; however, the food was very, very good. Go and enjoy!!!

The dining room furniture is outdated, the cost of the food was overpriced, cold food sitting in buffet pans under heat lamps.
Frozen food heated up for $40.00.
The best was arriving early and being sat quickly.
Wish there were more food options. Reading the menus the offerings sounded great, looking at the food, was not at all appetizing.
The menu said pan seared Salmon, The only reason we picked the place. The one thing they didn’t have, pan seared Salmon.

The service was fast and friendly. The buffet was mediocre for the price. There are plenty of other venues that serve the same for much cheaper .

I really enjoyed my meal here. The all you can eat crab legs with garlic butter was phenomenal! I also enjoyed the sweetest strawberries and the best cheeses. The atmosphere was delightful and the service was prompt and great! I will be returning soon.

Empty at 1 pm on Sunday, few choices on their "brunch" buffet. We were VERY disappointed after reading so many good reviews about this place.

We won't go back unless someone drags us.
