Service was OK. We were a group of 12 and were in a party room. The room was very, very cold and our food was not up to par.

We where invited by family to join them in a New Years Prime Rib Dinner Buffett. When we arrived the parking was plentiful and were seated right away. The prime rib was melt in your mouth great, but they have any topping that you may want to go with it. Chicken Marsalis was very good too, the au gratin potatoes... More

Stopped here on a day when most people stay off slick roads, the parking lot was full. Wonderful homemade soups, hot rolls, and fresh fried chicken. The desserts are an eye full when you first walk in. German chocolate, lemon chiffon, and more.

We were driving through on I80 and it was around lunchtime. A quick look on TripAdvisor recommended this place. It is a couple mile drive off the highway, but certainly worth it. The French dip was fantastic, the burgers looked good too!

We had a large group for a business dinner. Ask to be seated in the west dining room, it's a completely different experience than the east dining room. Everything on the menu is good, but the prime rib is the best ever.

This is a very good place that friends brought me to during my visit. I had the club sandwich, which was enormous and very tasty. It comes piled with a side of crinkle-cut fries. It was so much food that I could barely finish it, and that's pretty unusual. The prices are a good value, and service was very friendly... More

The food was fantastic. I had the pan fried chicken and my husband had the chicken fried steak. They were both so good. The service was friendly and efficient. We had dessert as well and the pie and cake were devine!

We had huge cinnamon rolls and coffee for breakfast = wonderful! Lunch was roast beef, scalloped potatoes, green beans, peas and carrots, garden salad, fluff ☺ salad, hot... More

ChancesR was the place to go for good food 45 years ago when I was a college student in York, and it is even better now when my class returned there for a reunion dinner last week. The prime rib buffet is great value for the price. There is a now a large banquet room suitable for group gatherings.
