Though small by comparison, the salads buffet and pizza buffet offered for lunch was great. Very good options on both buffets. And, it was all good! Can't beat it for $7.

My family really enjoyed Horse Cave and our meal at Turtlelini's. The food was great, reasonably priced and the staff was friendly. The desert called Snapping Turtle was amazing!

We took the kids to Mammoth Cave National Park for a visit, and my wife saw Turtlelini's listed on a travel blog. We saw that it had great reviews so we decided to give it a try. Glad we did! This is one of those little, off the beaten path places that you'd miss if you don't get off the... More

This restaurant quickly became a favorite on our vacation - so good we went back twice in one week! The pizza and spaghetti were excellent on the all you can eat buffet, but, oh, man, the cheesy bread and cinnamon sticks were just. too. good. We counted, and our party of 8 ate 40 plates. And it's under $7!!!

Delicious pizza buffet with lasagna, spaghetti and a salad bar. It also had cinnamon sugar bread sticks and a cherry pie filing with a cookie top. Clean dining area and bathroom, and the staff was very friendly.

You never leave hungry when you visit Turtlelini's. The buffet is always hot and tasty. The salad bar is always cold and well stocked. The staff are super nice and ready to help you if needed. The restaurant is clean and you just feel at home when you visit. The pizza buffet is always a great choice but everything on... More

Just a 20 minute drive from Cave City in beautiful rural KY. We like to avoid chain restaurants and kids wanted pizza. As we walked in a local couple stopped us to say that it's the best pizza around. It was very good with a salad bar. Staff were happy, helpful and hospitable.

We stopped here for lunch after a visit to Hidden River Cave (which was excellent). What a nice surprise! Salad bar, pasta, lots of pizza - great variety including meat lovers, Hawaiian, pepperoni, sausage and much more, and a great dessert pizza with sugar and cinnamon! Great food, friendly service. Don't miss it!

We ordered pizza for dinner one night after touring at Mammoth Cave and it was pretty good for what was offered in the area. I am a fan of the sweeter tasting sauce that was on the pizza and the dough was soft and not too thick. It definitely hit the spot after a long day of walking!

Been on the road all day. Got to hotel, no power. Big storm hit. When asking around, someone recommended this place. We got there, it was late, they said...Come in, we will feed you. ( they were getting ready to close). We had salads and a Artichoke pizza. Delish. Thank you to the staff. I'm in the hospitality business. They... More
