Chef carved beef, walleye, chicken, swiss steak, mashed potatoes & gravy, veggie. Nice salad bar, soup and desserts. You can order from the menu but the buffet is a good value.

Great portions... quality preparation... service top notch....Family friendly prices.... a buffet that hits a home run; try the great soup and the homemade pies, a standing roast beef and fried chicken that wins the prize....can't wait to return.
