They had scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, bacon and sausage for breakfast items. Salad bar pretty small with a few salads that didn't look homemade so we didn't try it. For entrees they had baked chicken that was very bland, the ham was good, the prime rib was overcooked and they cut it in half and sliced it so thin. The mashed... More

We use to frequent the Hoffman house for soup and salad, it wasn't the best but convenient at the time. It was also very outdated and drab. We stopped it to check out the changes when it changed to Rivalz. It's was a HUGE change. New set up and paint. The booths were redone and no longer dirty looking. The... More

The Rivalz proprietors came into an established restaurant with grand hopes. The execution, unfortunately, is extremely lacking. The location is very dated, and the minimal tenant improvements have not helped. The removal of the salad bar was a big loss, and other than paint and decorations, that is the only major change to the layout. The food is decent, but... More

I ordered a cheeseburger, fries and water because I simply needed to eat and go. After waiting more than 30 minutes for my order, the server with no name badge said she forgot to put my order in but that she would do it "right now." I told her "no thank you" but she disappeared anyway; apparently to place my... More

Nothing went smoothly. The server was not good and had the "I don't care, I'm lazy attitude." We ordered steak and asked for A1 sauce. The server, Angela, said, "I"ll see if I can find some." She came back and said "I guess someone forgot to put it on the list" and we had no steak sauce for our steaks.... More

Food bacisally thrown on stained plate, no presentation and it taste like it looks. Bland , bland , bland....rice pilaf, really? Salad Bar was really sloppy, and not... More

Enjoyed an evening here as audience members to an Artista! Players play. The food was very good and the turtle cheesecake at intermission was excellent. My husband and I discussed coming back sometime just for dinner.

They only had 1 girl working in the restaurant the night we went. We had to wait to get a table because she was in the kitchen, then wait to get orders taken, she forgot to bring our drinks out. The pizza tasted as if it was undercooked and had no flavor to it. They needed more help, people were... More

For Banquets, meetings, and family vacations, they have a nice swimming pool and hotel. They are a higher class restaurant and bar and hotel.
