Beautiful selection of salads, fruits and cooked and fresh vegetables, all we could eat. We had several entrees to choose from, fish, pulled pork, roast beef, lamb and pastry topped pot pie. Everything was yummy and service was great. Had to forego the desserts, but they looked awfully spectacular, especially the many-layered cakes. Will definitely go there again.

Had the soup and salad bar for lunch. Soups were good, salad bar was well appointed. Will return to try the hot entree buffet since many people are raving about it! Our server was a jewel!

This is my 3rd time here. It's been 4 years since last visit and it is an amazing buffet. You get everything for around 13.50 with the only thing limited to one serving is the meat. Turkey pot pie today, fresh veggies and a HUGE salad bar. Best ever salad bar. Deserts are great. You cannot go wrong here. Nice... More

We stopped in for a late lunch. This is a great place to eat, a hidden treasure here in DeLand. When in the DeLand area you need to stop in for some great food.

The Italian green beans tasted like they came right out of the can and were quite bland. The potatoes, gravy and bread... More
