Best buffet selection I have ever seen. Huge salad bar, huge dessert bar. There were probably 4 hot bars plus extra meat bar with everything you can imagine. Everything seemed fresh and hot. Rolls, biscuits, etc. Soft serve ice cream too. We went at lunch so it was $9 per person. Do not know what dinner charge is. And is was busy and there seemed to be a lot of regulars there. Would return for lunch.

Decent food - a vegetarian can make a decent salad here along with some sides. I liked the broccoli cheddar soup. The salad bar was basically equivalent to what Ruby Tuesday's used to be (before they updated it). A little too much iceberg lettuce and no Romaine, but they have a spring mix. The biggest disappointment was that nothing is labeled, not even the salad dressings, but there is usually a staff member around to ask. What I hoped were apple and cherry cobblers were peach and blackberry. I have no idea how much is cooked from scratch.

The bathrooms are so old it was actually amusing. Like from the 70s. Could use an update of ANY kind!

This is yet another place that will seat a table of hyper kids next to a table of adults who are trying to have conversation. Will never understand that.

Good service. Mostly southern comfort food prepared and seasoned well. Good selection. Only negative was it was a bit pricy for a buffet in Knoxville, TN. It cost over $30 for two to eat on a Friday night. No senior discount. You can also order from menu, if buffet is too much. I did not ck menu but appears steak house menu.

Quality of food is fresher and better tasting than most buffet places. Selection of food is not extensive but there is a good selection and something for everyone. Service is always good and the prices are reasonable. The place itself could use some updating.

I hadn't been here in maybe 7 years or so. The carpet is downright nasty and the whole place is worn out. They should close it down, renovate, and re-open. Unlike Golden Corral, there is no steak on the buffet. if you insist on going anyways, the Bourbon chicken is good, if you can find some that's not blackened to crispy. The place could be so much better than it is with some updating. I won't be returning anytime soon, sadly.
