About Crystal Buffet
Crystal Buffet is committed to providing a unique and enjoyable dining experience. Located next to the Galaxy Cinemas, Crystal Buffet is Collingwood’s largest restaurant with 300 seats for casual, family dining, dedicated spaces for celebrating life’s special occasions, and meeting place for community groups or corporate events.
Crystal Buffet opened its doors in Collingwood in 2012. In 2014, the original owners sold the business to the current owners. Looking to settle in a thriving community with a great work and lifestyle balance, they were excited for the opportunity to own and operate a restaurant in vibrant Georgian Triangle.
In July 2014, Crystal Buffet opened under new ownership and continues to improve and expand its offering to this day. From the 150 menu choices to the inviting décor and competitive prices, Crystal Buffet works hard to ensure that you enjoy your dining experience and return to us again and again.
The Crystal Buffet philosophy is: Buy local, use local (services etc), hire local staff, help local (as much as we can), and BE local (live, work, and play right here in Collingwood).
