Average buffet food

The service was great. They had a fair selection of food. The food was nothing special though. I would return there.

There seems to be two threads on this restaurant. I posted on the other as well, but I'll repeat - I've been here many MANY times over the years and it just keeps going downhill. The last several times I was here it was a MESS. Food all over the floor, dirty tables everywhere, running out of entrees, running out... More

Kids were running through the restaurant and touching the food. Not one employee said a thing. Employees were too busy talking at the salad bar with a woman who works there but was on work mans compensation. No one came by to take the plates from our table. When we got up to leave our entire section had not been... More

We were hungry and the staff was so helpful and the food was just right. Highly recommended!! Since it is a buffet we were able to choose food items that just fit our individual tastes.

If you plan on rolling out the door, then come to home town with a hearty appetite, the food is yummy, a good variety, plenty of parking, reasonable price to eat in or take out available.

Not your gourmet restaurant. It's has great value for working families & senior citizens, who gets a discount. Their food is like homemade that's all it should count. I'll let the Manager's abrupt behavior and not so upscale customers slide. There's usually a main entree section with chicken, fish and veggies, depending on what day of the week it is.... More

Nothing fancy, just a good family breakfast with a few twists. My son was happy to have tacos for breakfast! There are plenty of other non-traditional breakfast items on the buffet. There is also a cook to order omlet section. If we ever go back, we will definitely eat here again.

Not worth it. Food is inconsistent. Nothing special about this buffet.
