We went to dinner on Thanksgiving and the buffet was great!! The turkey and roast beef were so tender and delicious. All the side dishes were too! The desserts were wonderful and such a nice variety. The only thing I would add is different salad dressings, Italian and blue cheese. Everyone there was so nice and friendly and took care... More

I would just like to say the one time I ever decided to try the turf for catering I wasn't even wanting to after the rude lady on the phone tried to rush me off. She just couldn't be bothered.

We were at a wedding here which was very nice. The food was very good (large portions). They had their banquet room decorated beautifully and the staff was very nice.

My husband and I recently attended a birthday party here. We enjoyed the buffet luncheon enough to make plans to come back again for dinner.

I joined my friends at a fairly large reserved table and we were served quickly in this old tavern. The food was inexpensive due to a special they were running and it was beef for most of us. Apparently all the retired local people know the night of the really cheap special because it was packed with elderly people using... More

Have been here several times for banquets but this was my first time in the regular dining room for dinner. Overall the food was great and the atmosphere good. The only issue was at the end when I used the bathroom on the way out. This area is definitely in need of a major renovation and some cleaning to remove... More
