A variety of food was offered at decent prices. The staff members were very friendly. The only thing we were not made aware was the soup/salad bar were not available on Saturday. We never felt rushed & will go back & visit if we are in the area.

We found this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel clerk at the Best Western. Delightful place with good homestyle food at reasonable prices. Also enjoyed shopping for gifts in their gift shop.

Went and had Sunday dinner buffet with the wife and my word, best dang restaurant food I have had in awhile. I ate like I was crazy and everything I ate was delicious, well prepared as well as beautifully presented on the buffet. If you can't find something you like on the buffet it's your own fault. This was my... More

Good old fashioned southern cooking. Our server was very good and very polite. Fried chicken and whipped potatoes were so good.

We stopped in on our way from Tn to Louisville on a recommendation, and the food was fantastic! I had the fried chicken plate with two sides. Rolls were AWESOME and came hot and buttery. The fried chicken was perfect, and sides of Mashed potatoes and baked apples were seasoned just right... no need to add or subtract anything. Also,... More

Even if this restaurant did not have such a unique history and were not in such a lovely facility, it would be a great place to go for a meal - whether just lunch or a special occasion. We visited on a Sunday afternoon without reservations - it was a spur of the moment decision. There were few empty spaces... More

There's plenty of food for everyone, from fried chicken to baked apples and salad bar, and included desserts at the buffet. The wait was short to get in, the facility was clean and the staff courteous. I've been several times and haven't been disappointed.

The chicken dumpling soup was very good; but it was disappointing because it was served luke warm. My husband and I visited on a Saturday, but it's only on Sunday's do they have the buffet. I hear its good, but unfortunately, we didn't get to try it. The ambiance and decorations are very nice, and I spent time looking around... More

I have to admit that this is a beautiful place. We decided to try the buffet since this was our first time. The yeast rolls are really great. I tried small dabs of the food. The creamed corn was good along with mac and cheese. The mashed potatoes were just ok. The green bean casserole was tasteless. The baked chicken... More

We have wanted to visit this restaurant forever and it is worth the visit! Four of us went and we all got 4 different items. I got the Claudia Sander's chicken plate with creamed corn, mash potatoes with gravy. You also get a soup of the day and I got the chicken and dumplings. I thought it was great food!... More
