“some times great other times poor ?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

My wife and I are retired and have been coming here for 10 months.When we first started it was always for breakfast and never a disappointment.Then lunch and dinner and it was still very good quality for the price.Then something happened.Every week we saw a problem of some kind.Food was cold,quality and taste of some of our favorites seemed to go down noticeably.We then thought maybe we were just going there too many times and needed a change. We waited for three weeks and went back for the weekend specials.What a mess.Cold and tough steak.( medium rare ] ham that my wife got was more fat than meat, so we went back to fill up on shrimp and fish.That did not work they were out.But we did get our monies worth ,we filled up on deserts.[ they are always GREAT}We will try again because the price is right and they were good once.The service we have had is always top of the line.

“Good food value for price, but not all food good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

They have many items to choose from as usual. However, not all were good. While sweet potatoes were great, white, potato items were very dry...We went because of their commercials on TV touting their new carving board roast turkey. Heads up...the turkey was as dry as old wallpaper! It was not freshly carved in front of us, but had been already sliced. And, because of either over-cooking, or, just sitting under the warming lights, it was extremely dry. Likewise, the steak, which used to be out on the steam tables, was now at the carving board next to the turkey. Steak, like the turkey, would have been great, if only it hadn't been dry as an old dog bone. The pot roast, which used to be great in the past, was extremely greasy. The desserts bar was messy, and no staff member made any attempt to tell children to stop messing with it. Also. While the staff is friendly, accomodating and efficient, the floor could have been cleaner. Food scraps dropped by patrons were not cleaned up in a timely manner. The air vents are beginning to have black soot on them also which blows out on the folks sitting and eating directly under them. To give this restaurant some credit, we were impressed that all the food was kept steaming hot which is a very important health factor for buffets. We hadn't visited here in about two years, but thought it would be a nice change and returned, as the turkey ads lured us back..but, now, we will not return.

“They are just ok. I've had better but I would eat here again”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Not much of a variety of food. Desserts yes. Price is ok. Think they could put a lil more flavor in some of their foods. And everytime we go we are always waiting for the waitress or waiter to come pick up plates off the table forever
