A bit pricey but totally worth it..

The food was excellent, especially the soup and was pleasantly surprised they had three choices. We had the fried mushrooms, excellent! He had the fried chicken and I had the smothered chicken, both excellent! I was unsure about their homemade french dressing but again, really excellent... read more

We had a party of 16 people and were seated right away. Everyone got the buffet which is highly recommended. It was a Sunday afternoon so there was breakfast items also on the buffet. They had the best fried chicken I've had in a long time, the green beans and mashed potatoes were so good. They have a dessert table... More

My family and I (party of 5) came for lunch after our tour. We all had the buffet which was delicious and relatively reasonable. Our waitress was great, very friendly and attentive. Neat restaurant and good food!

I really wanted to like this place but in the end could not. Blackened chicken was just a chicken sandwich. 7 Pepper Burger was good. The service was like molasses slow.... I realize we are in the country but come on. Not to many options in town.

Love the food and the buffet. Price was a little higher than expected for a small town. Service was fast and friendly. Will return.

Large variety of food to choose from. Seafood buffet on Friday evenings. Would need to be hungry to get your money's worth. Could order from a menu too. Food was average.

Friends had cod platter as well as the chicken finger platter. Hubby had Philly cheesesteak and I had the roadhouse chicken. All of our food was very good. Is it the... More

Lunch restaurants are limited in Springfield and food here is about average every day. Don't think you'll save money by just getting the salad bar. The difference is less than a dollar. That is if you can get seated. I generally eat there once a week with customers, but it's very rare that we get seated promptly or have good... More

A nice place to have buffet for lunch. Nothing fancy but good choice of vegetables and couple meats. Soups are very good.

Decent buffet and an average price for lunch, but the service needs improving. The hostess was less than welcoming, and made no apologies for the close to 6 minutes waiting for her to seat us, especially in light of the fact that they were not at all busy. This place has great atmosphere and has the potential to really compliment... More
