“Great options....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

You can choose to dine in the 'all you can eat' or off the menu. Our party of four decided to split... 2 in the all you can eat and 2 off the menu.... both parties were very happy. The All you can eat is $20.00 dinner... we choose of the menu since we wanted to pick the food and eat only what we wanted... it came out to $15 per person and we were more than stuff..... we loved the Pot pie, meatloaf and fried chicken... we also ordered a bunch of sides... mashed potatoes, corn, chow chow... okay, it's not gourmet but it's like going to grandma's for all your favorites!

“Fun place - sat with fascinating people!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Food was good - plenty is an understatement. So nice that they encourage communication between you and the people you sit with. A little pricey, but food was good.

“Fried Chicken was so good!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

I wanted to try the family style smorgasboard but my family wasn't up for it so we ordered off the menu. I loved the fried chicken, it was so crispy and delicious! I wasn't a fan of the brown butter noodles, and the green beans were terrible. They were very salty and tasted like ham. One of my dining companions got the beef on bread, it was so tender, good flavor as well. Having never had the shoo fly pie, I had to try it. I was not a fan, it was too sweet and not a very good flavor. I loved the homemade bread that comes with whipped butter and apple butter as well. Prices were reasonable and service was good. I would return.

We think shoo fly pie is an acquired taste :) Thank you for your honest review - so glad you enjoyed the fried chicken, we have people come from all around the world to taste it and we always get high marks on how juicy and delicious it is!!! Our bakers make fresh bread every day starting at 4AM, they will be glad to know how much you enjoyed it!! Thank you and visit again soon!!
