Much better buffet than some of the fancier buffet restaurants in the area. Good selection of meats, vegetables, salad items. We were not disappointed. Highly recommend it!

I try to eat healthy each day, so I thought we'd go and treat ourselves to some Amish cooking. It was more economical to get the buffet than order from the menu for our lunch. I took a little taste of several hot dishes, and found each of them wanting. The desserts were the best things offered and yet they... More

This place is so awesome! We came for dinner after running the local running competition. The food is fresh, made with love, and provides guarantees food coma:) I also loved how nice the staff was during our dining experience. The area in general is just awesome. The turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes are they best.

The smorgasbord is only $12 for lunch and $21 for dinner and they have everything on it, or you can order off the menu. All the items say on a label where they are from

An all you can eat feast! Make sure you are hungry because from a salad bar, main course bar and dessert bar, you will be making multiple trips! There is also a children's food bar with all the kids favorites, mac and cheese, hamburgers, etc shaped like Noah's Ark. The wait staff is friendly and quick and they can accommodate... More
