The only thing that bumped this review from 0 to 2 was the waiter in the dining area. He was very helpful and was trying hard to make us happy. He bussed a table just for us, and took a lot of time to help us understand how the restaurant works. The building was in a pretty poor state of... More

Black olives that taste of the water in the tin are awful. Every thing else is also likewise packaged. Domino's has better pizza (surprise!).

We were hungry and tired after hiking all day and just wanted something fast and easy. They have a buffet so we figured it would be fast enough. It wasn't awful but it wasn't great. It reminded me a lot of Pizza Hut to compare it something people would know. The buffet had salad, breadsticks, Mac and cheese, spaghetti, and... More

The whole building should be burned down due to the filthiness. The service is horrible. Old food, we asked if new food was going to be but on the buffet they said yes after the old is eaten. Salad was brown. Stay away

We stopped in here on our way to the caverns. At 11:30 am, there was no pizza on the buffet. Everyone was having to get food off the salad bar. We waited about 20 minutes for more pizza to be brought out. Our waitress got our drinks about 10 minutes after we had sat down. The older long haired lady... More

We stopped in here because we were famished from touring the caverns all day. We're from NY so we have a certain idea when we think pizza. This isn't it. This pizza was more like cardboard pizza. The toppings were nice and the flavor, just ok, but the crust is dry, hard and brittle. We were disappointed. The waitress was... More

Not the greatest ambiance, but the pizza was fresh (aside from the canned mushrooms) and the crust was really good. I prefer local rather than chain restaurants. You can't go wrong with the pizza at this place.

This also seemed to be a place that the locals frequented. The buffet was nice, and had lots of salad choices. We were there on a weeknight, and it seemed like they were busier than expected, and only one waitress was there. The selection of hot items was okay, but when we were leaving I noticed that there were a... More

Had the buffet and the food was generally cold and old. The best part was the salad, otherwise the pizza was pretty marginal. Service was totally indifferent and essentially unhelpful. The waitress never told us we had to pay at the register, but never brought a bill and only really brought our drinks before disappearing.

The pizza isn't excellent, but it was very good. This place had quite a variety on the buffet considering the size. The pizza does not come with much sauce, so we both got a bowl of the spaghetti sauce to dip the pizza in. The price was reasonable and the service was good.

Thank Nikki F
