4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We have frequented this restaurant for many years. The staff are friendly and efficient. The choice of food at the buffet is excellent and the steaks tasty.

“Good Place for a Quick Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We go here often on days when we go shopping in the area. It is a great place for kids, as they don't have to wait at all to get what they want. If you are looking for any complicated dishes, this is not the place. They carry the usual American buffet stuff (fried chicken, potatoes, meatballs, chicken wings, salad bar, deserts.) Or if you want to order outside of the buffet, there is a steak entree lineup. I found the bathroom could use a little tlc, lots of graffiti, not the cleanest.

“Budgetized”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Lot of great deals not only for the steak. The food was delivered fast and was cooked just right. Not much of a decor but the food and wait help made up for it.

“Favorite stop-over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This place has been our favorite stop every single time we cross-border shop, for years. There is always a variety of foods at the buffet, no need to order steak every time. My grand kids love helping themselves at the desert table, especially the ice cream cone machine.
If you order steak and cannot tolerate spices like me, when ordering I just ask for no seasoning whatsoever and they accommodate me. This is fast and affordable AND they even have coupons!!
Love the salad bar. The staff always remembers me. That feels welcoming.

“Excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Good food at a good price. The Senior steak was a wee but on the smallish side but there were plenty of choices on the included buffet. The dessert bar was a pass but everything else was very good. Would definitely come again.
