The food was very good, and how they can offer such a wide range of food under $11.00 for an adult dinner is beyond me.

Great home cooking buffet. It's like your grandma's house for Sunday dinner. Friendly staff, feels like home.

We were staying at the General Nelson Inn next door on Easter and went here because the only other places open were fast food restaurants. This is a buffet dinner with a wide range of options. Food was good and we would go back in...More

Atmosphere? Nah. Gourmet? Nope. Delicious? Yep! The folks in the kitchen keep that home cooking coming - with both breakfast and lunch/dinner items in the late morning and early afternoon. As far as I'm concerned, that's the best time to visit.

My husband swears and declares that was the best chicken he ever put in his mouth! I am extremely picky and I even had a hard time choosing what to put on my plate first. I love the family oriented atmosphere.

It is a buffet and it was ok. I didn't see anything special about it. You could get full and it was a decent selection.

When working in Bardstown our group has eaten a few times here. The buffet is awesome. The food is fresh and has a great flavor. On occasions we have went in just a little early for lunch and caught the breakfast food on the buffet....More

I was very surprised of all the options. They were offering pork chops and a decent lunch/dinner section before noon. You pay at the door when you come in and help yourself. No service, no frills, many options, weak coffee.

It's like the Bardstown version of Golden Corral with less choices... the desset needs fixed though as the ice cream machine broke while we were there

Good food for a reasonable price. Nice salad bar and Great Mac and Cheese and Salisbury Steak! And the Berry pie with ice cream was delicious. Would try it again if we are in the area.
