“Good Food - Large Selection”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

We didn't have the buffet but when we walked past it it didn't look too good. It looked like a very small selection of food.

We ordered off the menu and they have a large selection to choose from. I had the cheeseburg and my husband had the fish and chips. Both were excellent and the portions were huge. Service is good and the prices are about average.

“More of a trucker stop type of place with sloppy food”
Reviewed July 24, 2010

We stopped to try this today and went for the buffet without looking at it first - that was our mistake. On going up to get the food - all the hot stuff looked all crusty like it had been sitting around for hours (even though the place was quite full of people tho maybe they hadn't had the buffet and chose other things?). The spagetti looked like what it would look on a childs plate after they'd played with it. Not appetising. I skipped all the hot stuff completely as none of it looked nice at all and it looked just really sloppy and half hearted.

The corn bread was nice. I tried the blueberry pie which looked like it was straight out of a packet...it was nice. The salad was reasonable - though wilting and a bit sad looking. The coleslaw and macaroni salad had no flavour. The bean salad was nice.

The server was really good though.

Overall, not impressed and would not ever go back. Full of bikers and truckers.
