I tried it years back when it was still called the littel in. My friend who took me there, said it wasn't as good as when the old owner still operated it. Back then the breakfast buffet was good, desserts not so. My friends liked the banana foster, but the rest was dry and stale. We went back a few... More

What can I say, the place is a dive! Food comes out in pieces, things were cold or luke warm, everything should hit the table hot which includes everyone's meal! We asked to see the manager and the OWNER came out and actually defended the quality and the food...I could tell that the server was embarressed but what could she... More

Our family loved to go to this place. The large tables are great to accommodate 8 to 20 family or friends at one seating. We made a last minute reservations for the 230PM slot. This was the last seating for the Mother's Day buffet. Our reception at the begining was wonderful. It was the same friendly service I remember. We... More

Seated at table for quite some time, we flagged our waitress over to ask her if we could get drinks. I noticed her going back and forth to 2 other tables without coming to get a drink order from us. The whole evening was asking for her to come back with something. Don't get me wrong, she was a very... More

I recently heard that a restaurant my wife and I liked in the past was now a new entity. We decided to try the Generations restaurant, which has an attached barroom (the “Drawing Room”) that features dancing on some nights of the week and a poker game one night. I stopped by one night, Wednesday, when the poker game was... More
