I had a wonderful turkey/stuffing/mashed potato dinner with salad for $10.00. It's good plain food. No frills. Regular price is only $13. I was too full from dinner but the pies and cakes looked freshly baked and very large servings.

We arrived and to our surprise they had the breakfast buffet. The price was great, very affordable. The food was good and well seasoned. The pancakes were not light and fluffy. The service was slow, but they were friendly. I would go back.

This place has it all. Great service with friendly smiles. Excellent salad bar with a lot more stuff than just salad items. Soup was terrific. Meals were large and tasty. We took a full take-out box of leftovers. Price was wonderful.
