We've gone there twice for family outings. We think it's one fine place. They offer so many wonderful dishes. And they're all good. There is no way you can leave there hungry. It's gourmet food and well worth the price. A short drive from the hub bub of Lafayette, it's in a very pretty, quiet setting. Whether a couple or... More

Went there with lots of enthusiasm from the high praise from friends and reviews. Left with total disappointment. Nothing worth the mention except for the omelette bar and the service. The rest of the food is just subpar. It's more like a $10 dollar buffet. The outside view was very nice as the restaurant is adjacent to the park. However... More

This was a very good experience for a Mother's Day Brunch. Plenty of delicious food in a relaxing atmosphere with a great wait staff. No long lines, always someone replenishing our drinks and the food was excellent. Would return for another Sunday Brunch.

While visiting family, we had the opportunity to have the Sunday Brunch at The Trails. We were greeted with a warm smile and seated very quickly, even without reservations. The choices were bountiful and the food very good. Our omelets were made to order and very tasty. I would visit the Trails anytime we are in the area.

The Sunday brunch buffet is wonderful with an amazing selection of food. We especially love the prime rib and made-to-order crepes. The atmosphere is alright. It is in a banquet hall, so it is sort of loud and not very private. But overall, very good place for a Sunday brunch!

I am a student at Purdue and my parents wanted to take my boyfriend and I out to brunch on Sunday morning. Dress is casual to church wear. There is no code. Wait staff was great and friendly. Food was great! Had a full salad bar including fruits and veggies. They also had the main buffet set up with both... More

I heard many great things about the trails buffet so I decided to try it when my family came to town. For the price, the food quality was poor. I was expecting much more. If you enjoy buffets, regardless of the quality, then certainly try it. But it did not meet my expectations. I wish I had taken my family... More

The food is good and the price is reasonable. They are open for Sunday brunch from 10AM to 2PM. They did raise prices to $16.95 per person but for what it is still isn't bad since it includes juice or coffee. They have the usuall breakfast foods on the buffet plus a cook to order omelet station, crepe station, and... More

After reading the reviews I decided to take a party of 8 here for the Sunday brunch. We made reservations and it was full of people. I didn't know what to expect beings it was a buffet but we all walked away very pleased. Everyone in our group has a little different taste and we all liked everyone we tried.... More

This is a Lafayette area favorite for Sunday Brunch that travelers shouldn't miss because this place can handle large crowds easily, with super sized banquet hall tables that make it easy to just "drop in" with LARGE families and their food is top notch, and all in a classy atmosphere. Starting with a very wide varietety of salads, extremely fresh... More
