“Broasted Chicken...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Broasted Chicken, need I say more? They have a Sunday Buffet that is good but it is really pricy! Even I can't eat that much broasted chicken!

“Busy Sunday”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

We were a large group of about 15. Food was fine, service seemed to struggle to keep up and could have been friendlier to out-of-towners.

“Sit down restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

This a a sit down restaurant. Although the prices are high it is good. Some foods are not the greatest but it is nice to sit down and visit. There are not many other restaurants in Petersburg but this will do in a pinch. They do have buffett at lunch - small selection.

“Between 5 AM and 2 PM, it's the best place to go in Petersburg”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
