We went for the "mini" buffet- on a Thursday evening. The selection on the buffet was excellent and the pricing wasn't bad either - will be back.

I grew up in Hagerstown and have been eating at "the smorgasbord" since around 1960, although infrequently in my adult life. On a recent evening visit, I was delighted to see old standbys like scalloped cabbage, buttered turnips, and juicy roast beef. The service was friendly and the prices very reasonable. Whether you've been there a hundred times or never... More

First visit. Everything about the buffet was very good. Cobblers with ice cream were delicious! Service was friendly and fast. We'll be back!

It has been a very long time since I visited Hagerstown, Indiana. On a recent business trip I decided to take the short drive from my plant and stop by Willie and Red's for some lunch. This place was formerly know as Welliver's which is quit possibly the very best buffet I have ever been to. People would come from... More

I'm glad that this place is still around, and although its a little different from Welliver's, I still enjoy all the foods I've enjoyed for a long time. I like to come here at least once a year.

The former Wellivers Smargasbord still has wide variety of fare to please everyone. Our party of three enjoyed the buffet, a steak and a sandwich. All were very good. The steak was outstanding. The service was prompt, friendly, attentive and very professional. Their dessert selection offers something for everyone's taste. A well appointed and quiet atmosphere and a dining experience...

The smorgasbord restaurant of Hagerstown has been well known in area for years. I had not been there in a longtime and back then it had different owners. I remembered it being a nicer, higher quality restaurant. Food was average, nothing special. We were very disappointed in it. We're not the type to make several trips back for more food... More

I took my 2016 Electric Leaf from PIttsburgh to Kansas City and stopped in Hagerstown to charge at Schneider Electric. The folks here were really friendly. I highly recommend stopping here and supporting this local business.

Great food. Ate on the menu side of the restaurant. Service was slow but our waitress was very attentive. Lots of bread and cheeseball while we waited. Will return.

Willie and Red's is the successor to a longtime staple in Central Indiana, Weliver's Smorgasbord. Weliver's had high quality seafood, fresh salads, home made salad dressings, and unique side dishes. That quality is not there anymore and the quality sea food is gone too. We have not tried the table service restaurant at the back end of the house since... More
