We were skeptical after reading some reviews but decided to try it anyway. The buffet was pretty good. The ham wasn't anywhere near warm so I didn't eat it as it obviously wasn't at the proper temp. I actually really liked the pizza when it was fresh. It's good enough that I would just eat it if they kept the... More

I ate here twice once off the buffet and the other time I ordered a ribeye off the menu.. The ribeye was awful it had no flavor at all even A-1 sauce couldn't help. My waitress was the best and very nice considering I had a terrible experience with the food. The next day I ate off the Buffett the... More

The food was decent the evening we were there, but the service was very poor. Our waitress checked on us once, but spent the rest of the time chatting with another customer across the room. We finally had to motion to her to bring our bill. The other waitress spent at least fifteen minutes talking loudly with another customer near... More

The price for the Friday night seafood buffet is good, however the seafood is overcooked. The oysters were dry in the middle, the crablegs had been soaking in hot water too long, and the fish was drived out.

Three of us dined here in Feb. 2014. Ummm...not quite sure what to say about this one! The server was friendly! Buffet was messy-looking, hadn't been tended to! Took a long time for server to tend to us; long time to get seated; table was not really clean. Wouldn't bother again! All three of us agreed - not again!

Last night I decided to give Western Sizzlin a try as it was under new management, mistake. I had stopped by last week and was informed by the manager/owner (later discovered his name is Mike) that they would open this week and invited us to stop by. Although I live in the area, I only eat at Western Sizzlin as... More

The young hostess was extremely busy - run off her feat. The table she took us to was not yet cleaned and she ran to get a cloth. The cloth was not particularly clean either. The buffet had empty dishes and the one salad was just lettuce with minimal toppings. The desserts were dismal. - nothing more than canned filling... More

Nothing to rave about really. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Price average. Full hot bar, salad bar, bakery bar.

Hospital food has alway been terrible but this place made hospital food taste a like gourmet meal. Always wondered what prison food must taste like... if it's worse then this place, I feel sorry for those locked up... CRAPPPPPY
