We have held our staff Christmas party there for the past several years. Home cooked food and plenty of it. Fried oysters are among the favorites on our menu.

After ditching the skanky Americas Best Value Inn, we stayed at its sister motel adjacent to this restaurant. Waitress very nice, food cold, tablecloth dirty around glass top and the glass needed cleaned good. We were so tired from our ordeal that lasted until 1am, we just wanted to feed the grandson and get out of there!

The free breakfast was not even acceptable being free. The only item that was good was the coffee. The eggs were dry, french toast was overcooked and hard and the toast was hard. Others said that the sausage and bacon were ok, just ok.

Had the complimentary breakfast buffet. Eggs were good, but the sausage was a little overdone. There was a good selection of muffins, cereal, and other entrees. A waitress brought drinks to the table. Friendly and clean and repeat guests were called by their names.

If you like to wait a hour or more for a under done cheeseburger and fries then this is the place for you. Don't recommend for dinner at all.

Just off the lobby of the Magnuson Hotel Covington, this restaurant is dated and has a distinctly retirement home feel to it. I sat with family who chose to eat at this restaurant. I chose not to after looking at the buffet. The food could not have been at the proper temperature, and the appearance was horrendous. In my opinion,... More

Stayed at the Best Western and the restaurant was very good for breakfast, but the thing I remember most was the steak dinner I had there. The entire meal was awesome from the salad to the perfectly cooked steak.

We had the buffet on Friday night and the price was right at $9.95 for an all you can eat buffet. The salad bar was very good and the deserts were also good but we were disappointed at the entries which were mostly fried foods. I guess you would call it comfort food. It was ok for one night but... More

I was there on 26-28 June and rethinking all that went wrong my score went from a 4 to a 2. The restaurant has a waitress who was not there because she was fluting and socializing--hard to tell. It got so bad that I requested a pitcher of tea in case she never came back. A customer who wanted to... More
