This is a great place for breakfast and lunch

I've never had dinner there but lunch with the work crew many times, going away, new baby and retirement lunches. You name it. My wife and I liked breakfast there on the weekend but they don't open real early, but we were driving from Springfield so it was not a problem for us. Nice cozy place you... read more

This place is obviously a hangout for the locals after work. It was kind of loud, but fun. Families, Suits, and couples were all having either drinks or dinner. The bar was full of people, and the dining room had a good atmosphere. The food was good for bar and dining food. Prices were moderate. My husband and I liked... More

Been around forever--because it's good quality and value. The sandwiches and salads are huge. The children's menu is real food at a reasonable price. The service is very good as well. Looks like a lot of fun for non-children groups too!

Great brunch spot.. went here with some friends and really was happy with the buffet set up and choices. There was everything from your regular breakfast options to seafood. Including shrimp, crab legs and more! There's someone making omelets and waffles... Great place that's not all fancy.

Juicy burgers and crunchy fries. Prompt soda refills. Friendly service. Convenient to Metro. Half price on Monday. What's not to like?

Waited to be seated in the back room with around the corner and down the hall from the buffet line. Neglected to mention a party of four placed in the overflow room may not be returning.

There are better brunches. The combo of great lively crowd and super fun location overcomes the mediocre buffett. We went for Buffett and were disapointed. For the first 45 mins, only half of the food is out, namely brrakfast meats, an egg station, three blase' salads, generic english muffins and uninspired bagles. We enjoyed it and at our fill but...

Be sure to go to the second floor to eat and drink at the Tiki bar. Service was fast and evening was great under the heating elements. Don't miss the bar games on the back half of the bar.

Feels like a hometown corner bar / restaurant. Reasonable prices with a great selection of beer on tap and even more in bottles, but a tip of the hat to the appetizer " chips and guacamole ". My order was to go, and there is enough guac left to eat with my next 3 meals and it was quite tasty.... More
