I eat there often. The buffet is consistently good, decor very nice and large clean restrooms. The staff is friendly. The also have a few interesting gifts available at the checkout counter.

Stopped here due to other reviews, but wished we had gone to Yoders instead! My husband and I got the specials which were country fried steak and shrimp. His shrimp was Ok- my steak was awful--couldn't even cut it with a knife. Green beans were overcooked and like slop. Only decent thing I got was cinnamon dessert! This was last... More

East of Arthur, Illinois in the Amish country - don't confuse this place with Yoder Buffet - this a much more traditional local cafe - recently remodeled - top off your meal with the cinnamon desert with soft serve ice cream

I was told that the chicken there was delicious so we had to give it a try. There are 3 of us who go out to eat together. They have recently expanded and it makes it so bright and roomy. Recommend if in the area check it out. Especially on Friday it is the day they make devilled eggs.

They're is a lunch buffet with 3 entres & vegetables or one can order from a menu. We went with the buffet and glad we did. The fried chicken was delicious! as was the... More

Went there on account of wanting to try as authentic an Amish meal as Douglas County could offer an 'English person'. There was the typical buffet spread and an a la carte menu from which to order. They do have unique desserts on offer for which the restaurant is known for, a cinnamon pudding of sorts, but I think it... More
