Need to try this at least once when you are in the area

Go hungry because you are going to get a lot of food. It's kind of the standard touristy place featuring family style dining - although you are not sharing a table which I like. All the food is brought out in service dishes and you help yourself. seconds are not an issue if you can get that far... read more

Family style eating at it's best. From the time you sit down until you polish off dessert, you feel like you are at home eating with the family. Our waitress was phenomenal. She treated us as if she had known us her whole life. I promise you will not go away hungry.

Wow after the sticker shock of how much it is to eat there you then get to your table where there is endless supply of food to come to your table. The service is fast and foods comes out just as fast.

We were on vacation with friends, and we all wanted to check this place out. Everything is like clockwork there; the seating, waitress, timing of food, refills, time to go.... No complaints, the food was good, and we were happy!

After hearing many good comments about this restaurant, I had to see for myself. We had a great experience and an awesome waitress. We arrived around 4:30 in the afternoon to avoid the dinner rush. The food was great and you definitely will not leave hungry. The chocolate cake is absolutely delicious!

The food was amazing, we had breakfast. We didn't wait to long to be seated or get our meal. I thought the price was a little high for lunch/dinner but for breakfast it was well worth it. Check out the local flyers for a coupon.

It was home cooked family style. Not the place you want to go if you are looking for choices. Food is definitely not healthy. More southern style of food

Country style buffet where they keep bringing food till u explode. Food was great. It's a tad pricey for a family of 7 when the kids don't eat very much but it's a buffet so I'm not complaining. 12 an up r counted as adults.
