“O.k., but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

The food here is average and so is the service. The location is close to an outlet mall, so they do a good business. The salad bar is not impressive. I recommend skipping it and just ordering off the menu. The Southern Omelette is my favorite choice here. My eight year old son likes their spaghetti. Be prepared for a long wait if they're busy. The servers are not very attentive, but everyone is friendly and the place is clean.

One tip to note, pulling out onto the main road is dangerous due to a lot of traffic. Notice that there is a back exit that will take you to a little side road where you can make a turn at a red light. I recommend doing that instead of trying to turn out of the main exit area.

“Good value for dinner.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

We went with family and friends for a dinner here. The always have a buffet option and for an extra $2-3 above most of the entrees, the buffet is a good bet. The night we went it was a seafood buffet.

Although all the seafood was deep fried (fish and shrimp), the buffet will give you a good variety of vegetables to choose from a nice salad to hot veggies like corn. They also have 3 different soups and also 2-3 hot pasta items too.

At $11 for the dinner buffet, it was definitely a good value. I had 4 plates and my 14 year old son had 6. Soda is also refillable, so with that it'll be about $15 and change per person inlcuding tax and tip.
