    Just curious if Wicked Spoon is still a favorite buffet? I went in 2011 and thought it was great and it is on my calendar for this coming trip.

    Love it! We went back a few months ago and it was still great. I give the Bacchanal a slight edge, but very slight.

    We tried it in March and didn't really care for it.

    I also tried it in March and I didn't think it was as good as I hoped. Much preferred the Bacchanal.

    I enjoyed it but the chef at the seafood station way over cooks the food. Scallops cook in about one minute. Cook them for ten and they're rubber. He wouldn't listen to me. The sauce was absolutely awesome though.

    Ever since we went in 2012 my wife has bugged me to go back. I found BOGO coupons on ebay so it is part of the plan this trip. Hoping it is still excellent as well.

    Thanks for the feedback. I don't do seafood so that won't be an issue.

    Wicked Spoon generally gets high marks from adventurous eaters, since they have lots of unusual (and good) items - bone marrow comes to mind immediately. If you are only going for beef and potatoes, it's probably not as good as many others. We still put it on the top of our buffet list, though like almost everywhere, it's not as good as it used to be. (based on being there about 10 times since the place opened).

    I think there carving station is pretty average. The rest of the buffet is good and unique.

    That's a good summary. My g/f and I are sort of unadventurous and it was a bit exotic for us, but we realized other people would like it a lot more than we did. Also a lot of things we had were a bit spicier than we expected.

    Perhaps my biggest buffet pet peeve - overcooked seafood. Completely ignorant behavior that needs to be corrected by the chef/managers.
