“Budget Family Style Dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

My husband and I visited on 4th of July weeknd during the 150th Anniversay. I was expecting a steak restaurant and was disappointed to find a budget type order at the register/salad bar type place. The food was just ok. The cheesecake on the dessert buffet was Jello No Bake. For almost $50 we could have gone somewhere much nicer and had much better food. I won't be going back. Also for 4th of July weekend there were very few people there although there were over 100,000 people in town for the 150th festivities.

“Good salad bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Fresh salad bar with a good variety of items. Good soups. Dessert buffet was somewhat minimal. Burgers are advertised as being made fresh on premises and indeed the burgers i and my son had were tasty, if a bit over cooked. All the other diners ordered stuffed chicken or steak. They all felt they were pre-prepared and brought in to be warmed and served. They were dry and lacked flavor. Considering what else was available in the area, this is probably better than most.

“Decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Strange set up, when you first walk in you order from the wall menu. Then you are seated and given a chance to go to the salad bar, very good selections. Food is brought out quickly and staff was very pleasant. Overall good experience, I was just a bit confused at the ordering process.
