A very good place for families to dine on comfort food, salads and desserts at a reasonable price, began to go downhill in the last few years until they finally closed their doors. The wait-staff was always friendly but cleanliness became an issue at the buffet servers and really made it hard to enjoy. No surprise when it closed.

This place maybe good for poor people or famiies on a budget, who aren't picky about food. There is a variety of food and meats, and desserts. It is large, with a private room. Self-Serve, pay upfront. It is fairly clean, plenty of parking. While the meats, fish, pastas, salad selection, and desserts aren't too bad, the rest tastes canned,... More

We've been coming to this location for 15 years. But today we discovered this location is permanently closed. It is a shame the economy has taken a toll on so many businesses. This was a great place to feed my hungry boys.

My Wife and I decided to try this place last Sunday morning. When we arrived around 9am there were maybe a dozen other diners. The coffee was weak. The breakfast foods that we tried lacked significant flavor but was filling. The whirring sound coming from the ice machine cycling on and off every ten seconds was particularly annoying. If large...

An all you can eat buffet close to Fed-Ex field. If you can't find something that you enjoy at this place - something is wrong. You will not go away hungry for sure. The ham, sweet potatoes, green beans, and bread were all good.

Every year for the last 9 years we have traveled to Maryland with a large group of family and friends. This trip is planned carefully at least 7 months prior to the date of departure. Each year we book and prepay for a buffet breakfast. For the past few years we have been going to another buffet, but decided to... More

Not your standard buffet. The food is of good value, being so affordable, yet also being of such good quality and preparation. Come hungry as each plate will leave you wanting more.

We went here for dinner on 6/27 & for breakfast 6/28. The food was great. They cooked that food...LOL... We can't wait to go back. Only problem, we're not going back to MD till October. I just have to dream about the food until then.

I have to be honest I have not been here in a few years. The food was never outstanding but it was a good price. Which brings me to my comment I went to the counter and the cashier asked if I wanted a drink, I said yes , coffee, he then told me it was almost $3 additional. I... More

Average food, Some things needed to be replacer and we're taking a long time to be replaced. Would rather eat smaller quantities of quality food than large quanties of average food. I had not been there for a couple of years, price went up.
