2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

A good, honest breakfast. The place was pretty much packed for a Sunday morning, which is always a good sign. The value is incredible for what you get.

I can't decide what I like the most the shrimp, steaks or the salad bar. Great and personable owners and team members. There was one lady I prefer not to have because she is loud and kind of rude.

Great place to grab a steak dinner. The steak dinner included a unlimited trip to the salad bar (really well stocked with everything you'd ever want in a salad) and a baked potato that was fit for a lumber jack--HUGE! Service was very good and if you have kids, it's very children friendly as well.
