4 years ago we ate here all the time - breakfast lunch and dinner. When they moved location we had two bad meals and stopped going for almost a year. tried them again and have been back every week since. You have to know the days to go because they have specials but half the menu isn't available except on... More

We ate there yesterday after being told it was a good restaurant. We were quickly served but I am sorry I can not say anything we ordered was good. The mashed potatoes were cold, the corn bread was burnt, and to put it mildly, it just wasn't any good. I ate a few bites but that was all I could... More

I'm surprised that there are honest seeming reviews which praise the food here. This place has been around for ages and has a large clientele. For the life of me, I can't figure out how it sustains it. Lack of good alternatives is probably a big factor. The food here is usually terrible. No care is put into the food... More

Recently gave Winner's Circle another try after staying away for a while. They were busy, but we were seated quickly and service was very good. Spaghetti was just OK. Garlic bread was good. Salad bar was nicely attended and the salad ingredients were fresh. Steak was nicely cooked and had good flavor, but it was barely warm. Flavored margarine on... More

Prompt seating, Great service, and very good prime rib on a Saturday night. The meal was reasonably priced with a large variety salad bar option as a side and enormous baked potatoes! I prefer more spinach, arugula options vs iceberg lettuce on the salad bar, but for the other selections, it was surprising well.
