This place is more than a restaurant - it's a destination that is fun, especially for kids. A walk around the ponds feeding the ducks is always a treat for the kids. The food is wonderful and staff fantastic.

We've been going here for 30+ years and are always happy. Family style sides, limited but not small entrees. Just upgraded tables, chairs, carpet, painted walls and window treatments. Food is excellent, service is prompt and friendly. Will go here again, and again, and again... Enjoy.

Always a favorite their restaurant week specials are really attractive. We had great variety our 9 yr old grandchildren ate for $5. Chicken, shrimp, crab cakes packaged on special menu. Great meal.

The scenery is great and the staff is friendly. You receive a large quantity of food for the price I think it was an excellent meal we will... More

The fried chicken and crab cakes are the best things on the menu. All side dishes are served family style and can be refilled as many times as needed. We go here probably once a month and the service and quality of food is always consistent. My favorite sides are the apple butter, sweet rolls and French fries. After dinner,... More

First of all, without even getting into the restaurant, the scenery going up to the restaurant is magnificent. Just all of that green grass in the country surrounded by the geese and ducks is something that will make you feel great. Now as far as the restaurant goes, the food was great. They bring out a number of appetizers and... More

Maybe some entrees are great. But ours was not. I had fried shrimp that looked and tasted like the pre packaged pre frozen and heavily breaded commercial style. Not home made i can tell you that. The pork chops were very bland. Sides were good but just basic and bland. The cottage cheese was great. Apple butter and peaches very... More

The first things they bring out are cottage cheese, cole slaw, sliced beets, peaches, apple butter, rolls and what we call sugar pills (roll dough covered in sugar). Then they follow-up with the entrees and vegetables. The corn, green beans and peaches are definitely from a can. The cottage cheese and cole slaw were very good as well as the... More

If any body says they did not get a good meal at this place they are nuts! Friendly people and great food. All sides all you can eat. Fries, coleslaw, bread, beets, and others. At the end of you meal year even get ice cream.

The entrees are all wonderful, especially the crab cakes and fried shrimp. I do wish they would be more creative with vegetables. Anyone can dump grean beans and corn and peaches out of a can. The cottage cheese and apple butter is a nice addition and the French fries are good. It is not an inexpensive place to eat so... More
