My Family and friends have gone to this restaurant at times. I like the food and even the buffet they offer. What I don't like is some of the staff and management of this restaurant. Almost every time I dine here the staff at this restaurant is very unpleasant and act like they are miserable working there. I do not... More

My family had to leave before we could even order, due to rude staff. I was also confused as to why if I ordered a dinner I was not able to share with another member of my family.

Nice to not eat at a vision of restaurants. Although the cloth that cleaned the table was smelly and had to have them rewipe.

Went to this quaint locally owned restaurant and was not disappointed. This was our first visit here and we were impressed by the friendly staff. The food was hot and delicious. We will definitely be back to eat here when we are in Circleville.

Goodwins is old style, but their food is great! Their weekend breakfast buffet is superb and their salad bar is always cold and fresh with a good variety. They are known for their broaster chicken which is always fresh and hot when served. We enjoy going on Thursday when they have the dinner buffet. You never leave hungry, only happy.... More

We eat here at least weekly and are always pleased. The menu is just good family style and a weekend buffet. The service is always pleasing and the prices reasonable. The long time owner is very generous to civic appeals.

Great local mostly family run diner, with good food and fair prices. GREAT burgers, Fabulous broasted chicken, and fabulous cole slaw. Salad bar is ALWAYS fresh. The buffet selection (when available) is sparse, but what they have is good except for the vegies (they are kind of bland).

The price was fair, the staff friendly. The food was good, you won't find a lot of variety, but a nice place for family or a meeting for your group. As there is a separate room for meetings.

Had the broasted chicken, which was good. Salad bar was small, but fresh. Decent service. Quiet laid back atmosphere.
