I went for Sunday brunch. The food was very good and the price was much lower than other places. Best of all, they keep their buffet hot, which is more than I can for similar places in town.

Never been disappointed with a meal in or take out. The best chicken livers you would ever find, great burgers, fish and chicken.

We had a lot of fried food, but none of it was frozen. It was great! Our server was just the right amount of attentive. We'll be back.

l had a chance to eat here over the weekend. Let me start by saying that without Tripadvisor I would never stop here. It is located behind a gas station and it looks terrible. The food and service however are awesome. I split the Shipwreck...More
