I had the meatloaf, carrots, and mac n cheese. The meatloaf was delicious. The carrots and mac n cheese were okay. My husband had the fried chicken with sour cream mashed potatoes and brocolli casserole. It was good. Fried chicken was a little bland. Very clean place and we both left full. We will try it again.

Great food, farm to table, made from scratch, and an extremely fair price! I wish they one of these back home. Cracker Barrel eat your heart out. Desserts-cakes, pies and ice cream were off the hook! Salad bar was great and everything else!

This family restaurant serves a delicious buffet. The meatloaf was wonderful as were the sides and the pie (custard). Well worth a stop on the way to French Lick.

This buffet was a very clean, well diversified menu with pleasant servers. We enjoyed all the homemade cooking and the friendly attitude of everyone there.

If you are looking for a restaurant with all carb and canned/processed stuff (don't call it food), this is your place. There wasn't one option, even in the vegetable section, that was close to healthy. I recommend avoiding. Your life really may depend on it. 7/8 of the clientele was morbidly obese.

Way out in the country we were delighted to find a restaurant of this quality. Nothing fancy - basic home cooking. Broccoli casserole with crushed Ritz crackers on top. Chicken, salisbury steak, roast pork. The only lettuce was iceburg, and the mashed potatoes were instant. The fresh tomatoes and blackberries from their gardens were the highlights of the meal.

Went here after a recommendation from Bob at White Oaks Cabins -- great food, a really good value and the play land was a huge hit with the kids. The fired chicken still makes my mouth water ;)

I always prefer to avoid chain restaurants when we travel but, with teenage boys, sometimes it's a hard sell. This was no exception. It was 11:00 and they wanted breakfast; I just wanted something to eat! The buffet was extensive but it was lunch time. They weren't very busy yet so I asked if there was a chance they could...

The Schwartz family runs the resturant, not a corporate chain. All of the food is like what your grandma would cook. Puts Amish resturants to shame. Service is great and food is even better.

Thank Scott W
