I would not recommend the steak. Very low quality cuts. The buffet however has lots of choices. home town type cooking with a large salad and desert section. nice change of pace.

I have eaten here many many times and I love the place. The food is always great, even the food on the bar. The servers are always on top of things. The servers are also the friendliest anywhere. It is a very well run place, a credit to management. It seems like other restaurants try to dazzle you with flashiness... More

We were going to go next door to the movies in about 35 minutes and our entire party got to eat a good meal with plenty of veggies and things the kids enjoyed with a minute or two to spare. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. Really hard to beat.
