- Bad Meal
My wife, son and I went to the lunch buffet yesterday. We'd been before several years ago and enjoyed it, so were expecting the same. After a long wait I paid for us, and my first surprise was over $60 for the three of us (no extras such as beer). Ok I thought, for that price the food must be very special (steaks, prime rib etc.). We went to our table, and noticed many other empty tables. Why the long wait to be seated?
Anyway, at least the food must be good to make up for the unnecessary wait. No it wasn't. None of us could believe the appalling selection. The carvery only offered ham. Not a steak, roast beef or prime rib in sight. Apart from, it was basic breakfast food (eggs, greasy sausages, bacon), tacos, cereals, deep fried battered shrimp. The desserts were also poor.
For over $20 each I felt robbed. The worst buffet experience we've had, ever. To think we could've had a decent buffet at our hotel (Palace Station, $7 each). Instead I forked over $60 for a glorified greasy breakfast selection (at 1:30 pm!).
You may be making money short term, but word will get around and in the long term you will lose many customers. Nobody likes to be ripped off.
