Stayed here with a Harrah's reward and it was very comfortable and a good breakfast was included. Beds were very comfortable and rooms were attractive. Older property but pretty well kept. Large pool and attractive lobby. Not fancy but we were pleasantly surprised.

When checking out I was reminded that we were entitled to a free breakfast. It was very good and nice it came with the stay.

Had the breakfast buffet. Eggs, sausage links, potatoes, gravy, grits, biscuits etc. I had the eggs which was ok but they put some new ones out while we was there and they was wet not sure they was done or they poured water in them. The sausage links had a good flavor and was great. My wife said the gravy... More

We ate the seafood buffet and were very disappointed. All the seafood was previously frozen and nothing except the prime rib was fresh. The buffet looked as if everything was already eaten and nothing was left. We went early so it should have been filled with food. The shrimp was not as good as groton's frozen shrimp. For the price... More

Very good buffet with good choices. They have homemade gravy that is excellent. Overheard a fellow diner say that he decided to eat there just because of their gravy. All their selections are keep hot and replaced quickly as they are depleted. The only negative is they don't have bacon on the buffet. It was there and one time but... More

The prime rib on the buffet was to die for! The clams were tender and tasted fresh. I was too wimpy to try the frog legs. The boiled shrimp were mushy. Good selection of desserts. Our server was friendly and a did a great job. I don't recall his name but he was a very buff Cherokee man. The decor... More

Thumbs down on the Sat. night buffet. The choices were sparse, the prime rib was actually tough, and the baked potatoes weren't done, plus I think our potatoes were leftover from Friday night's dinner and just reheated! At least that's how they tasted anyway. We didn't even bother to try either of the two desserts. You know the saying how... More

We are dinner here every night but Sunday, since they close at 2PM following a Sunday brunch. The restaurant is very homey and features a buffet leaning to the seafood side of the spectrum. The price is quite reasonable, and you may specify the buffet as is, or for an additional $7, add all-you-can-eat crab legs. Cocktail shrimp, accompanied by... More

Years ago we always ate here when in the area and it was wonderful. This year was a big disappointment. Fewer choices of foods that were just bland and unappealing. The service was excellent.
