The restaurant was clean, the service was great, the food was excellent and plentiful, and we had a lovely time. Really good flavoring on the steak!

Tuesday night dinner-July 2016. Dinner was good, my husband had a chicken fried steak and I just had the salad bar. They may want to consider other salad dressing for those of us who are gluten free as well as less marinated vegetables on the salad bar. We read several reviews that were good and bad. We give this a... More

My wife and I ate here the other night on our way through going back home. We did not have to wait long before we got a table. Our waitress was efficient and friendly. I ordered a New York Strip and my wife ordered the prime rib. Both of our meals were good and they both came out the way... More

The salad buffet was the best part of the experience, with several fresh selections. However, when our entrees arrived, the ribs seemed old and cold, the chicken fry appeared to be resting in a large puddle of grease/gravy. The creme brulee was also cold and salty instead of sweet (?). It's not what I expected for what I paid, and... More

I was happy to have some trout and this was the only place I found in town with fresh trout. The trout was OK but not the best I have had. The salad bar looked nice. My dinner friends also had issues with getting their order completed and had to request multiple items. The waiter was nice, but spent a... More

Had a hamburger and it was just ok. Nothing special. The salad bar was good and it had a lot to pick from. The floors were not very clean. Service was very good. Just an average restaurant overall that was not cheap.

The chef suggested the Prime Rib. The salad bar had appropriately cold plates and was well stocked, fresh and plentiful. The red bean soup was hot and flavorful. The chefs Prime Rib recommendation disappointed but management stepped up with a much better Filet Mignon (order one level more done to get your preference). The King Crab legs on the other... More

We visited over the 4th of July weekend. The highlight of the dinner is always the outstanding salad bar. My wife ordered the chicken fried steak and she enjoyed it. I ordered the 12oz rib eye and side of fried catfish. The steak was very good but the catfish was not as good.

Over all the food was good, salad, soup bar excellent. Our wait staff person was Victoria, who was very attentive! We both had Shrimp Scampi. Was good but we would have liked more! Only received 7.
