We ate here on our trip to Gettysburg and absolutely loved it. The manager was very friendly and our server, Michael, was one of the nicest young men we have ever had as a server. We went on a Sunday and the buffet was about $15. For that price you got homemade soup, (best chicken noodle soup I have had... More

Lots of food, a cut above many buffet restaurants. Very busy when we were there and most of the desserts were gone and not replaced. Excellent sweet potatoes.

In the last decade I imagine I have eaten here possibly 200 times maybe. Sadly, today I was grossed out more than I have ever been at any restaurant. I was really going to town on a black bean and corn salad and I noticed a funny texture and discovered it was a hair.... In my mouth. Upon pulling it... More

Awesome food! From what I can tell all home made! Prices were reasonable- 14 and change all you can eat adult- drinks extra. They do have beer, wine, and liquor. Friendly staff. Fresh salad bar and made salads. Soup, breads, 2 meats at the carving station plus another on the Buffett. Pasta, vegetables and the night we were there they... More

Not the biggest buffet but still good. Really enjoyed the carving station with ham turkey and roast beef. All were very good. Wait staff was awesome. Will certainly go back.

It's a decent buffet. The ham was ok, but the roast beef was better. Desserts were very good (I had the apple pie) Service was fantastic.

For a buffet the food was dry and flavorless. The wait staff was great. Very helpful and accommodating, but the food just didn't cut it. We liked the desert, but the main course was stale and dried out. Price was a little high.

Thank Chipper M
