Delicious

The restaurant was clean, the staff was friendly; we went for lunch but they brought out dinner a little early and we enjoyed salmon and hip of beef.

The choices were limited for adult consumption, and those that were choices were luke warm or cold. Dried up pot roast in little bowls. I would rather not return to this buffet.

My family and I came to this restaurant on a Monday. It turns out Mondays are what they call military Monday's. My dad is an active duty soldier so we got a discount. ( discount also for veterans, honorary members, and their families) They had a great selection of food that was obviously fresh. There is something for everyone and... More

It's hard to find a good buffet these days and this one is pretty good. I was disappointed in the lack of selection and limited choices they had available. The food they did have was very good country cooking. The hostess was not in a good attitude and seemed very stressed, she didn't greet us when we came in. Our... More

This used to be a nice place to go with a buffet full of great food and choices. Not anymore! There aren't as many choices now...and a lot of what they do have is served in little individual serving dishes. Grizzly steak is cut in tiny little pieces and served in little serving pans (think toy kitchen size) on top... More

Although this particular restaurant hasn't been remodeled recently to include the new soda machines, it is still a really nice place to eat. If you like people, you can eat in the "courtyard". If you want privacy, you can choose a booth. And they have a large private room for groups, if that's what you need. On this trip, we... More

The good news is that we had a 2:1 coupon; the bad news is that the food was disappointing. The atmosphere was typical of a buffet-type restaurant, and there was a wide variety of foods. However, the fried chicken was dry and tasteless, as were other dishes. The freshly cooked sirloins were OK. And some of the vegetables were quite... More

With a family of 6, it's nice to go somewhere that everyone can choose at least a few things they like to eat. The food is ok. The drink stations are great. You can choose sodas, juices, milks and even Icee. The desserts were plentiful. There truly was something for everyone.

I've eaten at a few of these and appreciate they offer Coke products. They have a lot of different items you don't typically see on a buffet- ramekins filled with chicken pots pies or sausage and grits for example. Chicken, fish, Italian, Chinese, taco bar along with meat and potatoes are some if the other offerings. I wish they didn't... More

Stopped by for lunch at the N. Academy Blv'd location. Was greeted by Peter and selected my seat. What happened then was magical! Strolled through the selection lines and selected some Teriyaki chicken which was delicious, BBQ Sausage (Can't ever get enough!), Honey corn bread and a fresh made chicken pot pie! I was actually shocked at the turn around... More
