I've eaten here many times. The food is always decent. Something's better than others. For example, their tuna melt is one of the best I've ever had. Also they have exceptional Greek dishes.

This is where the locals eat. It is not fancy, but you will get large portions of good food and a large selection to choose from. The salad bar is fresh and kept well stocke and the desserts are homemade. There are always specials. There are several large rooms to accomodate groups.

This restaurant has been a staple in Mills River for many years. It's a really good, inexpensive place to eat and have group meetings as well.

The staff and service here is great and the food delivery was quite quick. We both chose the salad bar while my wife had the fried chicken and I had the meat loaf. Both were excellent along with the mashed potatoes. Menu has a great selection of entries and it seemed crowed whenever we drove by.

Best restaurant around. Good food, affordable prices and great friendly staff especially Wanda!!! Service is good and they make you feel you are the only person they are waiting on. Presentation of salad buffet is over the top with so many choices.

First restaurant we ate at this trip to Brevard Friendly staff and they have a very large menu. Our meal was decent nothing great but nothing was bad either. The prices are reasonable for what you get. The baked goods look very good, however we did not have room to try them.

They cook every thing but nothing stands out. Many of the vegetables lack flavor. The corn is not edible. It's like they gave up. Stays busy--I guess because it's cheaper than some. Clean. Nice staff.
