My sister in-law and I drove 2 hours to visit this restaurant. One giant salad bar, a soup bar, potato and topping station and an ice cream bar. I was nervous about trying the clam chowder because I am really picky about it. Not to worry though because it was great! You can build your own salad plus they have... More

Most of the selections are vegetarian. My boyfriend was a little disappointed in that, poor carnivore couldn't tear into a steak. But there are soups, chili, and stuff with bacon in it. Just not huge chunks of meat. Perfect for me :)

The buffet is always well stocked. I feel like we are eating healthy when we visit here. We always use coupons so this is a... More

This is the best salad bar in the entire world! They have thought of everything and it is there waiting for you and fresh, besides. Between 2 and 5, seniors get a special deal that includes your beverage! They keep everything very full and clean! I love this place.

Don't eat here if you are looking for protein. There is none. Carbs & salads is what you'll find. Definitely overpriced for what you get even if it is a buffet.
