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... read 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

Although I don't like the fact that they charge you extra for your drink, the price is average for an all-you-can-eat buffet. I really like that they will cook your steak to your liking and do it with a smile! I've been to another buffet that cooks steak and they didn't seem to appreciate the fact that they had to... More

It was the biggest country buffet that I have visited. The food was good, and the staff was very helpfull. It was 11 of us and we were seated in a private area. We enjoyed the venue and the restaurant was clean.

We've been fairly regular customers fer several years; even before they opened the current location. Previously we have been very satisfied with the food quality and overall cleanliness, appearance and attentiveness of staff. Today's lunch experience was different. The food was well-prepared and tasty but the buffet was not well-stocked and some of the food temperatures were cooler than they... More
