“YUM!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The service was friendly and personable. The atmosphere isn't fancy, but it is homey and clean. The menu choices are extensive, with a choice for persons of every taste preference. Breakfast is served all day, and their salad bar is the best in town! Always fresh and inviting, with any topping you would want. They also have a bakery case with delicious goodies!

“Not again”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Went there for dinner after church. Man was that a huge mistake. I don't know why is was so busy. Their food is mediocre and the service was worse. I had to go ask another waitress for silverware because ours didn't bring us any. And we waited for her to bring it, but she never did.

“Great Value”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

We had the salad bar and it had a lot of choices.

There were flies in the restaurant though and we had to keep swatting them off our table.

“Nice owner Bad place- Over 65 and in a hurry? Stop..otherwise move on.”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Look at the awning outside the front door and you'll know all you need to know: the awning is ragged, ripped up, a little dirty (okay maybe more than a little) and it's perspective is definitely twisted. When we were there we ordered strawberry pie. What we got was more like a strawberry PopTart. Inside is as noted. There were a lot of people there, mostly elderly and mostly gnawing through the buffet like beavers through a pile of logs. I went through and picked and poked and ended up with a salad. My fellow diners didn't seem bothered in the least, so like I said, maybe the prices and choices would appeal to you if you're looking for quantity and not quality. There are other better choices in this town, but you choose....
