Our lunch buffets here included drinks. For a little over twenty bucks we really got our money's worth. Buffet is not huge, but it had what we wanted. Service was excellent.

The atmosphere was spartan - salad bar looked tired and skimpy. The hostess was lovely but we just didn't feel comfortable to eat supper here after a day of touring Caves. So we moved on quickly!.

Oh my, You don’t go there for ambiance but if you are looking for all you can eat for about $8.00 per plate, this is the place to go. They have delicious cat fish and real mashed potatoes and the best green beans ever. Fresh...More
