The restaurant is being remodeled, I hope I get to see it after completion. There was plenty to choose from on the buffets. Some things were real good, some were not. Salad bar, great selection. Lots of fruit! Ribs, very good!! Waitress very nice, friendly. I like the hometown feel. We would stop again.

The local place where you hear friendly hellos, happy greetings of people as they see each other for the first time in maybe 4 days; and, return to order their "favorite dish" again. I know that if I lived in th area, I'd be doing the same thing~as my hamburger steak was 1 of th best I'd ever eaten. Excellent... More

If you want an alternative to fast food this is the place. The service was kind of slow, even though it was a buffet we had to wait a while for drinks and refills. The food was good- not great or excellent, but okay. They had a lot of variety on the buffet.

I do not think I have ever had to write a review like this, but in my opinion I would avoid this place at all costs. This place offers a salad bar, a buffet, and you can also order from a menu. My wife ordered sirloin tips, and the salad bar. I got the buffet, The sirloin tips looked as... More

We just happened to stop here and saw the restaurant off the exit. We took a chance and we were delighted. The first impression is of an older but quaint little restaurant with a small buffet. We opted for ordering off the menu instead of the buffet. I got the seafood sampler and my wife got the steak and shrimp.... More

Friendly staff. Good selection from the buffet we did not try from the menu this time. You could choose from seafood chinise and America Good selection on dessert. Only thing was that it look like they were short staff as I only saw 2 waitress and they were kept busy as a crew on a crab boat in the Berring... More

As most other reviewers, we found this place while heading out to the Interstate and thought, why not? Well, that turns out to be a bad decision on our part. Like many reviews before us, I had a real issue with the dated and dirty décor, ripped seats, pealing wallpaper, bizarre unknown smells, and filth on the walls and floors.... More
