Having never visited the area this place is certainly eye catching. The decor is enhanced by the stories behind them being available in a flip chart on the table. The food is good, not exceptional but good. They have some interest in and unusual choices...More

I took my family of 10 adults to this restaurant on a Monday evening. The restaurant wasn't very busy. I think that was because of the prices, not the food. It is a buffet (smorgasbord is what they call it) only restaurant. $17.99 per adult...More

This buffet restaurant has the best home grown food around. All the choices have the best flavor and the waitresses are extremely friendly.

Prime rib was good. Salad bar very fresh. Sides were just OK. Desserts were just OK. Pies were not homemade crusts & way too much artificial whip cream. Wait staff were super friendly & attentive. Artifacts & giant mural were very interesting.
