Visited on two different days, one lunch and the other dinner. Good food, though I think the selection is limited compared to some other places I have been too. There was an option of an all day breakfast on one of these days, that, I thoroughly enjoyed. Overall, affordable dining, cozy atmosphere and good food, nothing too spectacular. But I... More

My wife and I went one day, as I used to go all the time with my grandparents when I was little, and wanted to go again. I hate to say it but it was not the best experience, but we did go towards the end of lunch time so it was probably all that was left over (nothing freshly... More

This place has no decor, no easy charms, or anything like that. Also it can get noisy and chaotic with kids running around a little like a family get-together. However it is clean, very functional, and has a wide selection of items in the salad, main course, and desert areas. You can make an excellent salad and it is probably... More

I went to this restaurant with and at the suggestion of a friend. It is a fixed price for an unlmited buffet. I rate the service as very good even though you serve yourself. I did so because the people removing the used plates, wiping the tables, etc. were friendly, polite, efficient and unobtrusive. Also, the food seemed to be... More

There is a good selection but this is almost the only positive. Most of the food is not that good. They ran out of sprinkles for the ice cream. The icee wasn't icy at all. They told us we had until 2115 to eat but started packing everything up around 2050. The ribs were too firm, biscuits too firm, pizza... More
