“Have to try it once”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I love going here, the breakfast is by far the best meal of the day. just a fun experience to have in the northwoods. yes it's kinds of cheesy, but it's still fun. if you don't get to try the bread or donuts, pick some up on your way out, you won't be sorry.

“Always Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Great Food at a Great price. Family buffet is just what is needed for a family of 12. Pot Roast is highly recommended.

“Dined there twice and enjoy it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Very clean, good service with a smile more food than we could eat. One of the three best places we dined in. Reasonalbe rates and nice atmosphere. We had all you can eat with two types of chicken, one pork and one beef. Very good, sides too. Went back for lunch and if was very good too.

“Not the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

This can be a crazy place when your sitting next to anyone and your all eating off the same plates. The food is alright but I think its all for the experience.
