Had the buffet and the spaghetti was pretty good. Had to stop the waitress and ask for refill. She did leave us the pitcher of tea so she dosbt have to be bothered again. Would eat here again cause the buffet price was good.

We ordered from the menu and did not eat from the buffet. The food we had was excellent and more than enough. The actual restaurant seemed to be in need of an update.

Several restaurants were closed on Sunday so we were happy to find this place open. The service was very good and the food was tasty. My husband loved his Club sandwich with nice thick ham slices. Prices were very reasonable. Worth a stop!

Fried Chicken, meatloaf balls and gravy, mashed potatoes and gravy, vegetables, salad and lots more for a very reasonable price. Very nice people too. Not in the mood for a buffet? The menu will have something that suits you fancy. Enjoy!
