Ate here yesterday for the first time and was very surprised at the limited selection for the outrageous price of $18. There were about a dozen choices, no salads, no desserts. Chicken balls were tough and wings were greasy.

I find the buffet at Don's is always well stocked and the restaurant itself has been renovated over the past couple of years. A nice place to dine with friendly service. The food is quite good.

Stop over at Freshwater on the weekend and had lunch at Don's Restaurant. Very clean, service was quick. Choice of dishes is somewhat limited, but well prepared and tasty. We will return.
