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.

Group of 5 adults ate there on a Friday evening. Seated immediately. Waitress was attentive. Food was fresh and hot. Mushroom appetizer was steaming hot! Salad bar was fresh. 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

The place is none too clean and the service is abysmal. Go for the soup and salad bar. The salad bar is average, but the two pepper soups I had were two of the best soups I've ever had. Ever.

A friend highly recommended the buffet; I have no idea what he was talking about as it was barely edible. $28 for the seafood buffet, with tasteless food. Only two kinds of cake for dessert, neither very good. Sorry, but at least when I was there last week, it was very disappointing.

This place was awful -- the server was rude, the food was not great (though not horrible), the walls were cracked and had a huge hole next to my husband's heads, which no one seemed to think was odd or frightening. I spent the meal concerned that something was about to crawl out of the wall -- and that the... More
