    radisson dinner buffet - changed

    the prices have changed. it now cost $24.99 for adults and kids over 6 cost $12.50 or so (half price). kids under 6 is free.

    we were so tired from the walk (surf club) that we decided to suck up the price changes and just eat there. but when we spoke with the waiters and the host, they informed that there is a manager on site that made the changes. for obvious reasons, business has dropped 30% since the changes were made.

    Hopefully with the price increase, the quality of food has gotten better. BBQ night was terrible when I ate at Laguna 3 months ago.

    I just got back and was about to try the seafood buffet on Friday and after reading 6 reviews, ALL BAD I passed. I went to the buffet at Marriott Renaissance instead. I paid a little more at $40 a person, but wow it was amazing. I'll write a full review and post it when I get caught up at the office.

    Breakfast was fine... even good! The one time we tried 'seafood night' a few years ago was a disappointment! The menu selections were not as advertised and it was just plain OK! Better options... similar cost within walking distance.... If it were free, I'd try it again!

    don't bother going to the raddisson for the buffet - breakfast or dinner. the selection is SMALL. breakfast is mostly continental with omelets. dinner - just read my post above.

    the only reason we try to make it at least once is for our little kids - they love feeding the fishes in that pond.

    I'm not attacking anyone with my response here, but I would never spend $40 on a buffet. Must have gold-coated fruit or something? Good grief

    Thumbs up

    matt i agree with your comment about most buffets.
    that being said, we used our marriott casino points to go to that seafood buffet at marriott.
    the food is exceptional.
    presentations/set up is beautiful.
    so would we pay real money to go there again?hmmmm probably.

    to give you an idea of what was offered while we were there
    grouper, smoked salmon, baked salmon, real crabmeat, jumbo cocktail shrimp...actually larger than jumbo they were huge.
    sushi, oysters, wonderful new england clam chowder and so much more
    including prime rib (what kind of fish is prime rib and spiral cut ham )

    the salads were terrific
    the pastas, potatoes and rice and veggies were beautiful looking.

    we did not have anything other than fish and a slab of prime rib that evening.

    we are seafood addicts.

    the seafood buffet there at the marriott is to seafood what amazonia and texas d brazil is to beef and pork.

    Marriott Seafood Buffet

    Andrea, they brought the sushi back? The last time we were there, they had taken the sushi off the seafood buffet. We return in November and just loved their seafood buffet.
