The bar is really nice! Not one of those little dives - it really is classy! The pizza is excellent and have not tried a menu item that was not tasty. I notice that at times they seem to have difficulty keeping up with the buffet but every item on the buffet has been good. It is a nice cool... More

I had my 45th birthday party here. A group of 8 of us went here without a reservation. They seated us right away in a private section. I ordered a 1/4 chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy & steamed veggies. I also had fresh baked bread, homemade soup and a wonderful salad bar all for $10.00! The staff was so wonderful.... More

I've been here about 5 times before over the last 3 years and almost always get the french dip, which is always good. This time I shared a few apps with my hubby, pork nachos and fried green beans. The only reason we ate some of it was because we were so hungry. My husband first ordered the cuban sandwich... More

Crappy and cold tasting, bland food from salad/buffet bar, 20 bucks a pop. Could have gone to golden corral for 12 and be 10 times better!

This is one of my favorite places. They have an outside and a kind of sports bar and then in the back a really nice restaurant that also has a soup and salad bar that you can have with your meal. Food is super but then there is the carrot cake. Please please try it

Loud, over priced, food so ordinary and on some visits down right terrible. They push and push to get you to buy buy buy. Then you wait, wait, wait. Tried it a few times, just to be sure. Can't stand the noise level, the closeness of the tables, lack of privacy for conversation. Just plain blah....
