I know that many people love this place, but there isn't anything about the food that is special. I can make each and every dish at home, most of them better. When I pay to eat out, I want something different. You don't get that here. It's just not my cup of tea.

The Pines never disappoints and always has great chicken and fried fish on the buffet when I go. It is always very good and it never disappoints.

The Pines has been open 30 something years. I have eaten here many times over the years. Ate there again tonight. The food was good for the price. The service tonight wasn't. But it's an ok place for something different in Madison. I'd really give it 3.5 if I could.

I rediscovered this place with work friends. A very good American buffet. Clientele seems to be an older crowd, and the atmosphere fits that group, but the food is good and the quality is consistent.

The staff was really friendly and the food was very good. Nice fresh quantities food including fresh fish, ham, roast beef and chicken. They had a large area where our party of 50 people could all eat together.

The Pines has a wonderful buffet. The salad bar is definitely worth writing home about! And so is the bread pudding. Note - they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

This restaurant was supposed to be for a light lunch, but when we got in and saw what a wonderful buffet they had, we left having eaten a little too much. Everything was very good and 'different'. Even the mashed potatoes tasted better (homemade with lots of butter). Hostess was very friendly and gave us a close spot to service... More
