The buffet was well stocked with meats, veggies and salad items. We were seated promptly. The hostess and server were friendly. The food was good and there was a selection to choose from. Our server kept our glasses full. Restrooms average.

Great salad bar---excellent types of lettuce/spinach choices. The cat fish is a must!!! Good old country food. The roast beef, vegetable and gravy is ALWAYS good. Great service with a smile.

We ate lunch off the buffet. Everything was hot, good and clean. Goldi was our Waitress; she was nice but not very attentive when you needed her. I would stop by again if I am every in Lenoir City.
