Ate here several times; it was convenient to work location. Buffet style dining. Very good selection of veggies, meats, breads, desserts, salad bar. Had to be careful to not be a glutton. Serving staff were always on top of their demanding jobs. Food was hot and fresh, home style. Conveniently located near the hotels, and just off the main highway.... More

My friends opted for the buffet which has a huge selection of foods. I was amazed at the variety of food being offered. As stated by... More

Not the most modern decor, but a great selection in the buffet. Salad, prime rib, pastas, Chinese, Mexican, American. Dessert bar us outstanding. They have a cottin candy machine! Bigger selection and cheaper than the franchise buffets. Definitely should give them a try

Been there several times. They have a great buffet of some great chicken. The pot roast is outstanding. The meat in one spot and next to it they have the carrots and potatoes. The mac and cheese was so fresh and creamy. The help is very pleasant and always there to clear plates or refill your drinks. Megan and Sara... More

We loved how fresh everything was. The mac & cheese was so creamy. I think my husband has three servings of the pot roast. There was also a great choice of vegetables that were cooked well. not mushy. Service was attentive.

Our servers have always come and checked to make sure our needs are met. The food is hot and easy to get to. There is... More
