A variety of different dishes that you don't get other places. The owners are very friendly. Great view of Lake Panasoffkee.

The title pretty much says it all. The buffet was very good and had some surprises like the pineapple fritters and real mash potatoes. The view of the lake was a great plus. We will be back!

This restaurant is one of our favorites. The food and service is always good and the price always reasonable. It is a nice fide to the place and the view does not disappoint. Do yourself a favor and visit them. You will be glad you did.

Was taken there for my birthday by family. Food was just fine and the atmosphere made the night. The waiter is a nut, in a good way. Was very active and helpful. We were able to enjoy the night as we were never rushed.

We went for the Sunday buffet early in the day and found the food was very good. Very much homestyle type of food. The buffet isn't huge but has enough variety to keep most anyone happy. Cannot complain for the cost. Definitely worth the money.

They only have a buffet, and are open Thursday thru Sunday. The selection on the buffet is really great home cooking with turkey just like Thanksgiving and they carve you portion right off the bird. There is a complete salad bar with all the options

We have been to this restaurant a number of times now and each time is perfect. A truly home cooked meal. Our last visit was for Easter dinner and we really enjoyed the lamb shanks. Would recommend highly

Had heard good reports of this restaurant and their regular ad in the local paper looks professional enough, so we went there to celebrate a friend's birthday. Inside and out, it's quite "tired" and in need of some serious updating. Dining room is fairly small, but we did have a nice view of the lake. We went on a weekend... More
