I went here one evening when I was in town visiting family and the experience was just ok. The food was on the pricey side for quality, and the meal was ok at best. With limited restaurants in the area this is going to be one of your only sit down eating options in the town unless you go on... read more

I'm sorry, but when I go out to eat and PAY an establishment to sit down and eat at their restaurant, I expect to be treated courteously. I'm not rude, nor demanding. I used to wait tables in my youth, so I like to treat employees like I would like to be treated. WELL, at this restaurant, don't even waste... More

We visited this restaurant on a recent trip. We waited for a hostess to seat us for at least 10 minutes. The restaurant was not busy and we only got her attention because a FedEx delivery guy found her and pointed out we were waiting. She didn't greet us and seemed irritated by our presence. I asked her a question... 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

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! Definitely bring an appetite! The amount of food you receive is worth the small... 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.
