Nice buffet all day long

The food was pretty good. We've been there several times over the last few years. They have a really good buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner on the weekends in the summer. Plenty pf seating and entrances from the front and from the parking lot which is in the rear.

Home cookin, reasonable prices, large potions! Amazing homemade breads. Salad bar, soup, buffet, or off the menu. Any meal we've had here has been great.

Had breakfast here. Decent omelette. Nothing spectacular. Completely outdated but this might be charming for some. Portions were far too large and frankly - bland. Service was polite and the coffee was surprisingly good. Neutral experience.

We always stop here before boarding the S S Badger for breskfast. Service is friendly, fast and attentive. We never worry about missing our connection when dining here. Good old fashioned food with homemade breads fresh from the oven.

Two in our party ordered BLTs for lunch. We agreed that they were the best we've ever had anywhere. In addition to being awesome, they were huge! Old Hamlin's bread is homemade. The servers were very friendly and helpful. We ate there again while on vacation and everyone enjoyed their food once again. This is an older restaurant, but who... More

We've been visiting the Old Hammy for 20 years but this past weekend's experience will likely be our last. There is one ANGRY GRANDMA waitress who will literally plow you over when she walks by. She's a real stickler for the 'fire hazard' rules, not allowing a little kid to sit at the end of the table to be next... More

The person who led your group of 13 into our restaurant was the person that made the choice on the tables. I told him we had 3 tables close to each other that his group could split up into but that we could not put you altogether . Maybe you should have been part of the table picking process and... More

We stopped for lunch. We didn't want to look all over for a place to eat so went with one of the first places we seen. We both decided on the salad bar. First of all you could barely walk around it, it's in a very tight space. It was pretty bad. Not very many choices and the ones they... More

My husband and I ate breakfast there on Sunday! I ordered their omelet which was enough for a few people! Very tasty!! Hubby had eggs and bacon. This seem to be an old time place that is still serving up good food!
