“Overall great experience will go back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

My wife and I made a trip from Columbus on a Saturday for the lunch buffet after seeing this pizzeria on the internet. The buffet was around $8 for weekend lunch (not sure if it is different at different days/times). The building itself would not normally get a second look but if you judge this restaurant by it's cover you would be missing out. The food was fresh and the buffet was keep stocked with the typical items. There was pizza. It was good the toppings were fresh and I loved the sauce and the cornmeal dusting (3 different types: would have like to see a better variety, however a family came in as we were leaving and asked for a specific type and they made it and put it on the buffet), mac and cheese (good, peppery), baked penne (delicious, tasted like homemade!), bread sticks (good as well, they were brushed with a garlic butter and herbs that was perfect, only downside here is I wish there had been some marinara for dipping). Pasta salad (good, black and green olives!!!), broccoli salad (very good, sweet dressing), BBQ chicken (I didn't try it but my wife said it was ok), there was also rice, vegetables, mushrooms (spicy), Cesar salad that I did not try. There dessert was good it was cinnamon rolls and there was chocolate pudding. There service was great, friendly and helpful the interior of the building was clean and well kept, the restrooms were as well. Great place to go for a nice buffet.

“Great Buffet.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Great buffet at reasonable price. Always seems very clean and the items on bar seem to be fresh. Go before 8pm though because they close the buffet quite early. You can always order other things off of the menu though. Pizza is very good.
