Extensive Lunch Buffet

After twenty years absence, I returned to Hemingway's for my birthday lunch. I barely glanced at the menu, as the rest of the party was having the buffet, so I decided to join in. For, $10, the lunch buffet was quite extensive: two soups, the clam chowder was delicious, a nice chilled salad bar... read more

They have a great lunch buffet with a wide range of choices for a moderate price. Service was excellent - much attention to detail.

We tried Hemingways years ago, and it was over-priced and limited. More recently, my dad and I went for a special buffet, but found the newer menu more appealing at much better pricing than before! It is American, but there are some really good "local" items such as catfish and trout on the menu for very affordable prices. And the... More

A huge aquarium is a backdrop to one side of the restaurant and the other is the second-floor view over the Bass Pro Shop - the original store and still (I believe) the largest. It goes on and on ...

My dad and I really wanted to try this place for dinner since it is in the original Bass Pro! It was not good. Our appetizer, the venison mushrooms were pretty good, but the vinison was way too salty. Dinner came, and my dad's catfish was raw in some places and had absolutely NO flavor and a weak texture. I... More

Ugh. It's just a very average buffet. There's a variety of the kind of food you'd expect on a buffet.

Ate dinner at Hemingway's last night with my wife and another couple. It has been a couple of years at least since we've eaten there. The atmosphere is probably the primary reason to eat there if you can sit and look at the fish tank, as the food was nothing special. I had the coconut crusted chicken and steamed veggies.... More

We came on a weekday for lunch. We had to wait 30 minutes before being seated, and then the waitress was only able to bring us 1 glass of water, saying she didn't currently have any clean glasses. Some of us had the buffet; others ordered off the menu. Everything was fine but nothing was amazing. It's hard to believe... More

Although I'm the last person in line for a buffet, this one is the exception to the rule! It was a lovely full salad bar with wonderful bowls of fresh fruit, hot entrees, a carving board, selections of 5 fish dishes, plus breads and desserts!
