it is a really cool place but the food is horrible and overpriced. Salad taste like it came out of a bag, the mashed potatoes were dry and not warm. The chicken fried steak was the worst I have ever had. Very gamy and gristly....More

Delicious steak. Fresh!! salad. Much friendlier than other places recommend for solo or party. Mounts are spectacular. As good as 46 years ago when we played football (high school) against paxton. Friendly as he'll still!!

There is not a buffet for lunch or dinner. However, there is a buffet for breakfast. The morning I was there, I ordered straight off the menu as the buffet was not yet set up. But you can rest a sure that the cost for the... More
