“Between 5 AM and 2 PM, it's the best place to go in Petersburg”
Reviewed October 6, 2011

The restaurant is only open until 2 PM daily. Breakfast is order off the menu and lunch is either order off the menu or take advantage of their buffet. The buffet serves three different main courses each day which normally includes a chicken, a beef and a pork dish plus the normal salads and vegetable side dishes as well as desserts and the none alcoholic beverage of your choice.
The restaurant is always clean, the servers make you feel welcome and the food is always good and plentyful. They cater primarily to local people but have "regulars" who drive an hour or more to eat here on a weekly or monthly basis. Seniors, farmers and local construction people make up the bulk of their client base.
The Sunday buffet lunch includes a carved ham and roast beef along with broasted chicken all for a reasonable price.
If you have a concern or issue, just ask for Rich, the owner. He is always there.
