Sometimes all you want in life is a massive choice of food. The concept of an all-you-can-eat buffet was started in Sweden to feed hungry out-of-town guests and was later brought to the United States during the 1939 World’s Fair in New York. In the foodie state of Maine, you know we’ve got some incredible buffet options. From lounges with incredible spreads of Asian cuisine, to inexpensive all-you-can-eat options at local colleges, these buffets are among the very best!
The Southern Maine Community College (SMCC) Oceanview Dining Hall is open to the public. With incredible views of the ocean and Casco Bay, you can enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet for under $7.
