During a business trip stopped to have dinner on Easter and the buffet was dissatisfying. The cornbread was hard as a rock and the cleanliness of the dining area and the buffet could be better. Will not go back.

First time visiting this restaurant and the service was exceptional. The food was also very good for a buffet style food. Much better than any other buffet I’ve ever had. Would go back

I stop in quite frequently to get my breakfast to go. I love the assortment of items on the breakfast bar.
