The food is always delicious and worth the trip to eat there. We made reservations as there was 8 in our party, but we did not need them. The staff is very friendly and willing to help in any way they can.

This place is always packed and I don`t know why. It`s over priced for a buffett and you better like broasted chicken ....no meat to speak of....they have even expanded the seating. I think the reason it is popular is because it`s Amish. Don`t be...More

If you are looking for Kale salad and wheat juice shots you will not find them here! Rather, here the wheat is converted into dumplings, breads and cobblers! Great fried chicken and bread pudding!
