Best rolls I've eaten in a while, good vegetables and baked chicken, delish peach cobbler with Blue Bell ice cream, but the worse chicken and dumplings I've tasted. Friendly waitresses and interesting antique décor. Was there for lunch so the buffet was $13.

We have eaten here a few times over the last two years. Never had any bad food, nor bad service. Fair warning, they are always crowded at lunch!

It was my first visit. Not enough of a selection on the buffet. The chicken was salty. The food was old and greasy. Will not return.
