Stop in for a quick lunch. Got the buffet and drink. The salad part was good and the entrée part was fair. Door was just OK And not even warm. The ice cream part was good.

It's been several years since i had been here. My daughter and i had our Sunday breakfast here a few weeks ago. The room we were in felt like a diner atmosphere, not anything special. The waitress had a good sense of humor and was very good. The buffet was better than decent. Not spectacular like some of the higher... More

We arrived and were greeted immediately. Almost immediately, our server arrived, very friendly, very open to our inquires and our drinks came out very quickly. Once we ordered our meals, they arrived very quickly. They were attentive, checked numerous times to find out if anything was needed and cleared our plates quickly. We enjoyed our visit and will return, no... More

Very good salad bar and buffet. Quite a selection, especially on the salad bar. Very reasonably priced. Good cocktails and wine choices. Not fancy but good food.

Over the years the food has changed. The salad bar used to be better and the all you could eat buffet used to be less expensive. The food is cooked in a lot of butter so if you just eat the all you can salad bar you will have to order from the main menu. They do have rooms to... More

Would say good, although not great food. Selection a little limited, but what they had was as i said, pretty good. Tasty and well prepared, although don't look for anything gourmet here or great selection. They typically have somewhat limited choices which change, so you might be better off to inspect before eating, to see if what they have that... More

We went in for a light dinner. The wings were good, but the onion rings were the best! Service was very good and fast within the bar area. Not sure about the other part of the restraint.

Thank Stephen M
