We are from out of town and have met with relatives to eat at Rob's several times in the past when we were in town. Have had good experience in the past but this visit was the pits. The chicken was tough and the rest was barely tolerable. As if the quality of the food hadn't already ruined a good... More

Folks have telling me how wonderful this place is. So we tried it. Read my reviews, I'm not a food snob. Rob's missed the mark. The potatoes are powdered. Yikes! Why? Fried chicken was tough and tasted like the frozen Tyson boxed stuff from the grocery. I could go on but why bother. We ate and left and have no... More

Food like Mom used to make, only better, and service with a smile. This place is simple and no-frills with a somewhat limited ordering menu, but their strength is the buffet, which is chock-full of options that change daily. The variety and quality of foods is wonderful. In addition to the salad bar and hot foods buffet, there is a... More

Stopped by for breakfast and much to our surprise the sign on the door said closed for remodeling beginning today. Well have eaten there before so I can only imagine it will be great when they reopen. Looking forward to grand opening.

We were a group of 30, had a back dining room, great service, and waitresses were very friendly and attentive. Food was plentiful, delicious and hot. Great Salad Bar, also we could order off menu if we chose.

I have never had such a delicious buffet experience. The pot roast and mashed potatoes were just like homemade. The turkey was fresh; large hand-cut slices. For dessert I had strawberry shortcake, with fresh strawberries! Wonderful salad bar on the buffet too. They had signs on the door that they would be closed for renovations soon. We would definitely go... More

Most folks get the buffet which is loaded with canned and bland Sysco products out of a can. If the fried chicken is fresh, it's pretty good. Since it's a buffet, the servers do little more than refill drinks. Not worth a return visit.

Dined here twice during the month of June. Once on our way out to Utah, and once on our way back. Average family restaurant. Sorely in need of a new carpet and a little freshening up. The wait staff was friendly and prompt. Got the buffet both times and it was good. Had different stuff each time and have to... More
