I've had lunch and the Saturday buffet at this restaurant. I won't be going back. I found the food to be ordinary. I can't say that anything from the buffet warranted a second helping. It's not terrible, just not memorable.

My order got messed up and the service was slow, but it's not all bad. I've been here before, when the owner was in the house, and the meal was excellent. Yesterday, not so great.
