We live 25 miles away and have been here several times. The food is always incredibly yummy! The salad bar is huge and always clean and full. When we came in tonight my husband left his phone on the table, the waitress Katie ran out to the parking lot to chase us before we left. Very above and beyond! We... More

I ate here with a friend for a quick dinner. The food was good. I had chicken tenders and the salad bar. The salad bar had a lot to choose from and everything looked really fresh. The chicken tenders meal was great too. I don't eat here often but have a few times and have never had a bad experience.

It is difficult to understand why people are even going to this place. The place is disheveled, dirty, burnt out light bulbs, dingy entrance and average food. While there the place was getting busy. The manager (owner?) stayed at his table drinking coffee and barking orders to his staff. The food is overpriced for what is received. If you run... More

We were there November 28, 2015 for lunch. There was plenty of room and we were seated right away. The staff was quite friendly and we were given a huge menu with lots of choices. There was some ice spilled on the carpet, but the staff walked around it causing the manager to come out and take care of it.... More

Went to dinner in mid-afternoon on Sunday. Quiet. Server was very friendly and efficient. Food on senior menu was good and portions were just right. I would recommend the restaurant serve crackers or crutons with salads.

Nice family restaurant with a varied menu. Food was very good but service time a little slow. French toast and club sandwich were very good! Handicapped accessible which is a little hard to find in this town.

I like the very diverse menu and the soup and salad bar is very good. It is a good place to go for a "quiet" eating experience and I think it is a good value
