Just ok First of all, great service. But the food was only so so. Reuben soup was very good but beyond that, we were disappointed. We will try it again though.

We were in Mio to look at a cabin with our friends and we were debating on what restaurant to eat lunch. We had not been here for several years and we thought we would try it again. We were very glad we did. The staff was friendly and attentive. Our food was hot and delicious. Our friends are quite... More

Buffet was COLD. Eggs were gooey. The French toast and pancakes were hard and dried out. The potatoes were so dry they were almost chips. The service was friendly but slow. I'll be choosing somewhere else next time.

Great breakfast buffet, just like I would cook at home. Clean and friendly 😊😊😊. We stopped because Trip Advisor showed that it was open, offered breakfast and had a great rating.

Food was fast & fresh. Large portions. Pie crust was tough, but pieces were huge and filling was good. I ordered the lemon .

Plenty of food. All seemed from scratch. Nice atmosphere and nice decor. Prices are reasonable for the portion sizes.

Like many others we were passing through town after shopping at the local market. All four of us enjoyed our lunch choices: BLT, burger, Italian sandwich & Black Forest sandwich. What we especially enjoyed was their homemade ham & navy bean soup. My toast on the BLT was a bit dark but all in all lunch was a hit and... More

Had a group of 10 of us come in on Sunday morning and the breakfast buffet was delicious. Best buffet I've ever eaten at. The french toast was amazing!

Wonderful service and food. We visited passing thru to visit the Amish stores and we each ordered something different. Everyone's meal looked great. The manager greeted each 'regular' by name when they walked in.

I just went here this past weekend and was pleasantly surprised and pleased with their food. I have not had many good food experiences in Mio and this will be a new stop for me in the future.
