My wife and I and our family have been going here for years to the buffet. The last few times we thought it was not as good as in the past. We went again last week and have decided we will not be going back. The service is always good but the food is really slipping. The quality in the... More

The home-style cooking and wide variety of choices at the buffet are worth the short drive to Elmira. This restaurant is not fancy or upscale, but the food has always been tasty and the service is efficient - all at a very reasonable price.

The staff were wonderful, the food was excellent for a buffet and maybe as good as I have ever had at one. The restaurant spotless and the... More

This restaurant offers the choice of either a buffet or menu. Upon arrival we were seated promptly and a server quickly took our beverage order. The buffet itself consists of a number of salad bars, a desert bar, and a main entrée bar. The salad bar items were fresh and tasty. There is also a couple of soups offered with... More

I can see why guests have mixed reviews at this restaurant. Selection is large and varied, yet some items are served cold or overcooked. If you like an alcoholic drink with your meal, you will also be out of luck. That being said, most buffet lovers will eat their fill here, the taste is "good enough", and the servers do... More
