The food was very average at best the pot roast was too salty. And the salads were skimpy and overpriced. The service was good though!

The food was good, I just couldn't help but feeling I am cattle. Way too many people, hence service was slow ...

“It was okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Pricey place to eat. The food is average at best. You would be better off to drive to another town. Try Clarks in Tropic. Great food and large portions.

“Eat at the right time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Had the dinner buffet which albeit a little expensive (18.99) but near the park I suppose that can be expected. The buffet food was very good, corn biscuits were excellent and overall great selection. Make sure you get there before 6- 6:30 because it starts to get very busy. We ate at 5:30 and sat right away and had a very nice meal with great service.

“A bit pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Food was just Ok. Decent variety with a lot of very filling selections. For the price of almost (20.00) the drink should be included!
