Good experience!

We were looking for a decent place to have an early dinner and decided to try Winners Circle. It looks like it might have been a chain steak house at one time. My husband got the Captain's Platter, and I got the sirloin based on the server's recommendation. Both were good. Some of the seafood... read more

We enjoy eating and finding new places to us. This was very disappointing. The seafood is overcooked, hush puppies tasteless. Coleslaw was dry and needed seasoning. All in all food is not tasty. On the plus, place is clean and service good.

The food was OK, nothing extraordinary. It was a little pricey for what you get. But they do give you a lot of food.

We were pleased to find that this is a very clean restaurant with great service and food. I got the all you could eat spaghetti, which was the special of the day, when we were there. It was DELICIOUS! It was definitely made from scratch. My husband got the hamburger steak and a delicious baked sweet potato. The salad bar... More

I think this was the worst food we have ever been served bar none. I ordered the barbecue sandwich which was a sandwich of fat, truly all fat. I told the server and she said it's from the ribs so that's why it was fatty. It was inedible,nasty. She offered a replacement but by that time I was just disgusted.... More

We kept hearing about this place and now I know why. Very clean feeling and loved the decor plus the staff was nice. The prices were good and the salad bar was wonderful. When the food came out it was Fresh,Hot, and Great. We even buy the gift cards for family members and they were happy. Thanks for bringing Ashe... More

We're locals and stopped here one time. The fish and chips and hushpuppies were so overdone it was difficult to tell what might have been beneath the thick and burned breading. Both our meals were like that and a quick look around told us that everyone else's were as well. Maybe this is a local delicacy, but if you're really... More

Linda and Dick Copas continue to offer quality dining at reasonable prices in Jefferson. Whether dropping in for breakfast lunch or dinner you know to expect quick service, with a smile and well cooked meals.
