Have to Agree with Neil O....Buffet was so-so

I arrived at 11 am and the buffet was still setting up. The salad bar was ordinary lettuce with a few sides, the dressing was just ok. I was hoping for spaghetti but they only had some sort of macaroni dish, not that good. The pizza was not appealing enough for me to try. If I go back, I... read more

Food was just OK. The patty melt sandwich, traditionally served with rye bread was served with just plain white bread. The pizzas are OK, but the front crew with the pizza oven has a difficult time if there are more than one or two orders outstanding. If I could give it 2 and a half, that would be more accurate...

A very nice attentive staff but the pizza buffet for lunch will not bring me back. It was boring, disappointing, but not poorly prepared. I am sorry I was bored each time I went here. I always go else where in Adel.

Very cozy, relaxed atmosphere. You could tell everything was fresh and homemade. Server was very nice, she did mix our order up but problem was solved fast and i would definitely go back!!

Food was very good. We had the buffet/salad bar, small but good choices available. We were not impressed with our waitress. Asked for a real (metal) knife to cut the pizza into small pieces for a family member who has trouble biting down with force. Asked for one first thing, never did get one. Had to find her to ask...

The salad bar was old, unappetizing, & dry. The server didn't check on us or get us refills. The manager was rude & refused to fix a problem with our check. No wonder this place wasn't busy....There are too many wonderful places to eat, to make this mistake again!

They were able to accomodate a wedding party of 25 with only 15 minutes notice due to a power outage in a neighboring town. The food was great, prices reasonable and outstanding service.
