Default Evergreen Buffett and Grill??

Has anyone tried the Evergreen Buffet and Grill in Pinellas Plaza? Would like a review from someone that has tried it.

We went there last week, and it was very much to our liking. The containers were not overflowing, nor empty with "scrapings" sitting in the bottom and wre replenished often, everything was very clean, with MANY choices. We hardly scratched the surface, knowing we will return. There was an ice cream cooler for help yourself choices, along with fruit, jello and puddings for those not wanting to go the ice cream route for desert. Oh yes, and cookies.... We were guests, and did not look at the price options, but have since realized that while one could eat elesewhere for less, the choices offered at the buffet justify the price.

My take:

The grilled food was very fresh, and good quality, the steam tables….well not the best I've had, and not a lot of variety compared to others I've gone to. The hot & sour soup had no flavor or heat. Lots of near empty food trays, empty ice cream containers, and the service was so so. They never came around again for refills on hot tea or other drinks. A bit high priced for the value, but I'm sure the Villages rent is costing them a bundle. It will be interesting to see how it does long term. I'm on the bubble as to whether I'll go back or not.

We were there Christmas night. Very busy. They were struggling to keep the food trays full (or as full as they could get). I was able to eat everything that I wanted.

Food was good. We plan to return. Price in line with similar buffets. Keep in mind that they just opened and still have a few kinks to work out.

Higher price then any Chinese buffet around, also less meat choices. What they had was hot and tasty and they did have grill they would cook up your choice of ingredients on. Will try again after awhile to see if they have added any extra choices.
