This place has gone down hill over the last 15 years. I know you DIE HARDS love it, but this is Gourmet Nursing home food at best. The atmosphere is nice and the landscape is divine, but the food is bland and right from the...More

The servers are sweet. There are no frills about the sweet tea served. What makes this place is its buffet. There is loads of food to choose from.... From entrees to desserts. Don't miss this place if you are in the Wayne County area.
