“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Was a wonderful meal with the best service from wait staff in a very long time....only reason we marked down atmosphere was the place has the tables way to close to each other...it really makes it feel uncomfortable sitting back to back where you actually hit each other just getting up...they need to fix that

“Trip Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

What a wonderful stop on a long drive! I could have made the melt in your mouth rolls and delicious broccoli cheese soup a meal by themselves. Wow! The salad bar had a nice variety but was rather salty and lacking the wow factor. We did end our meal with a nice steak and yummy mashed potatoes. Definitely a great stop! Wish it was closer to home.

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The food is good, but the atmosphere is crowded. Go to eat not to talk. You are elbow to elbow. Great salad bar. $$$

“Best Restaurant the World Over !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I have traveled the world, and this is my favorite restaurant !! I have been going there for the last 40 years. Go for the lunch buffet...for $15 you get the HUGE salad bar, entree with 2 sides, drink, AND all the yeast rolls you can eat...and take with you too. Everything is homemade, including the strawberry jam to put on the rolls. Deserts are fantastic too, but you will have to get it to go, as you will be stuffed after the buffet. Place is impeccably clean, and staff is always super-friendly. You can go there in your Sunday finest, or your bib overalls..you find all kinds of people there.

“It's become very average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

The service here was very good and the facility was clean. The many windows in the dining areas offer some beautiful views of the fall foliage. However, the food was average at best. The salad bar was limited without even any shredded cheese available. This is a steak-house so I set the bar high on high quality steaks. My 8 oz rib eye was tough without much flavor. However my wife had a much better marinated New York strip. The yeast rolls were good with apple butter but the baked potatoes were small with limited options for toppings. Overall we expected much more for the price and reputation.
