When you visit here you need to be hungry, because they have so much great food to sample. This is one of those rare buffet's that keep the food fresh and good. Great BBQ on select nights as well as fish and all the trimmings. The dessert bar has all the goodies Mom used t make, including cobblers and cakes.
