“Failing under new ownership”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Hot smorg was lukewarm at best. Food was very bland and flavorless, if you closed your eyes you didn't know what you were eating. Even the presentation was bad, the fresh pineapple was just hacked into various sized chunks, as was the cheese selection. Looked like a child had chopped both items up, no pride in presentation. Unlike the good old days, the desert table had little to offer, again a very small selection and poorly laid out with the plates at the back so you had to reach over the foods to get one. We complained when we paid, and you could tell by the response that we were not the only ones to complain. Too bad that this restaurant is going down hill, it used to be one of the best, as I rated it in a previous review. New ownership has hurt the quality of this restaurant badly. I know that we won't be going back!

“Not as good as it used to be.”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Went there after a few months hiatus. This used to be our usual spot. We went back as we had a coupon and found it wasn't as good as I remember. I loved the roastbeef and gravy - its pretty much the only reason I go. But they have changed their gravy and the roast was VERY tough! Couldn't even cut it. This was a big disappointment. The hot foods didn't offer a good selection either. Just seems it went downhill. The service was as good as usual.

“Lunch Buffet Dec 20th, 2012”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Arrived at 12:30 chose the buffet rather than menu items. Selection was limited in salads, what there was was not great and the hot food was limited. Chopped up sausage, meatballs, and two selections of what seemed like creations mom use to make to use up the left overs from the night before.

Presentation and layout of the buffet was pretty poor and when more than one person was at the hot items area of the buffet is was difficult to access items due to everything being crammed together.

Was a disappointment for the price.
