It includes the "Market Bar", salad with fixings, hush puppies and some of the best corn bread we've tasted. Add some cheese and... More

Dinner was ok, nothing special. Breakfast was a disaster -- after 25 minutes still no food. It finally arrived cold yuk. Fortunately the entire meal was comped. If it hadn't been, we would have been very angry.

The first cut of prime rib was well done. I prefer medium rare. The second roast came out looking perfectly cooked to a medium rare. The peel and eat shrimp were exemplary. The waitress was very good considering they room was short on staff. She handled 10 tables well, patience was needed from guests. Other food items were very good... More

I had a different entree each time I went to the restaurant and each one was delicious. I particularly liked Sam my server and she remembered my favorite drink and offered excellent service. I'll be back!

We return here each year for Mom's Day and they only get better! We were waited on by Brianna and PJ who were very attentive, making sure we had everything we needed. We also had 'Big Show' check up on us too. Such a friendly group! The food is always spectacular. We have had the Fish Fry and other items... More

This breakfast buffet has everything you could possibly want. And, unlike many places, they will make your eggs to order or fix you an omelet if you don't want the buffet scrambled eggs. The coffee is Starbucks! Tables are far enough apart so that you are not forced to listen to another's conversations.

We've been coming for the Mother's Day Brunch for at least 5 years. As always, we were not disappointed. Great selection of brunch items to choose from. Our waiter, Rico was very attentive. He made us feel like we were the only table he had to take care of. We'll be back next year!

Great food, modestly priced and outstanding service. There was no wait and even for breakfast the waiter "Janes" took the time to explain the benefits of the breakfast bar.
