Satisfied everyone

Enjoyed by all. Each of the children found menu items they enjoyed and we appreciated the lack of complaints. All are well. Topped off with homemade ice cream with sprinkles.

Came in on our way home from West Baden Springs resort. The place was packed. It was the week before Christmas. They even had Santa Claus you could take pictures with. The place is a buffet/cafeteria style. You pick up your tray and pick your foods out. I am gluten free so they did not have many options for me.... More

I thought about giving this place a three because the customer service was great but I have to be honest and let everyone know how big of a let down this place really is. All the reviews and the locals rave about this place. I think people have never eaten anywhere good at that point. My family and I drove... More

Our favorite stopping spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Cafeteria style with home cooked nutritious food. Pancakes or cinnamon rolls for breakfast are terrific, Nice and fresh salad bar along with a good variety of homemade desserts for your sweet tooth. My favorite is the baked chicken and the sour cream and cheese potatoes. The staff (mostly family members) are... More

Not much to look at for atmosphere but the food is great and very reasonable. Served cafeteria style after breakfast time which ends at 11am on the day we visited, Saturday. We came for dinner one night and breakfast as we were leaving town. Hubby had chicken, pork chop and salad for dinner. I had pork chop, chicken dressing (yum!)... More

Nice large eatery out in the middle of nowhere. All buffet, no menu offerings. I had roast beef and sides. The roast beef was in a gravy and in small chunks rather than a slice. Very little beef per serving. However it was there when I was hungry for lunch and it wasn't fast food. The parking lot is crushed... More

This was a cafeteria style restaurant. We went on a Sunday and just had the meal instead of the all you can eat. The servings were plenty large enough. One meat and 2 sides plus a drink were all around $7.00 each. Glad we stopped here and will stop again when in the area.

$12.95 for all-you-can-eat at dinner, and the food is very good. You can't go wrong here, and the place is full of local residents (a good sign). Meat loaf is particularly good, as are the sour cream potatoes. Deserts are good, too. Just wonderful. On caveat: the green beans look and taste as if they came from a can. But... More

I only live 5 minutes away and come here often because food is good, friendly staff & it's so clean. We go almost every Sunday after church and very thankful this restaurant is in my town.
