Okay, not great food. Had the pizza/salad buffet for dinner after a day at Mammoth Cave. Staff was very friendly, though!

I absolutely love there food. The salad bar was fresh and also offered potato salad and cottage chesse. I have to try them all. I only made it to try one piece of pizza this trip. Therefore I went back yesterday.

I recently had a lunch meeting at this little gem & it was wonderful. They have a daily pizza and salad Buffet that you won't want to miss. I give it a definite thumbs up.

Every time we pop in on road trips they add new items and the staff is always helpful! Their salad bar is great.

More like a fast food place than a restaurant. Food was tasty. Have to order at counter but it is served to your table. Tables are set haphazard in a very small space. Would say it is an OK place to eat but not dine.

When my family I spent a week visiting Mammoth Caves NP, this was the best restaurant in the area. The pizza and salad was excellent. The value (price/quantity/quality) of the food was incredible. Compared to all pizza places, not just the many "touristy" places around a National Park, Turtlelini's is a gem. I highly recommend.

Wonderful, clean, well kept up Buffet! We were in town 3 days and ate here twice! Their Cheese Sticks were top notch! Sandwiches are terrific also! They have a "Regular" size and a "Super" size. Trust me the "Regular" size is more than enough!

After driving 6 hours, this was the first restaurant we visited on our KY trip. A bit pricey ($50 for 2 adults/3 kids), but the buffet allowed the kids to eat as much as they wanted. The food was excellent (definitely get the lasagna), and it was a great place to sit and recuperate after a long drive.

Thank Jonathan T
