lovely restaurant where you don't need a reservation if you stay in conference center motel next door-a lovely place, too! meal is AYCE, served family style. all the trimmings $15.50 and 2 meats $16.50. we had baked steak and fried chicken. chicken is the basic meat that comes w every order and you choose the second meat. we did not go wrong w the baked steak. the pot roast also looked great, but the people sitting next to us and also the waitress suggested the salisbury steak and it was fantastic. the food is hot and they don't hesitate to bring what you desire. meal includes meat, noodles, dressing, beans or corn, buns, salad, mashed pot and gravey (be fore-warned...these are not real and the only part of the meal that was bad). includes drink and you can mix and match those. also, includes 1 dessert and those are the best part of the meal. we had sugar free coconut cream, raisin pie, choc raspberry and banana choc. all were fantastic. we would eat here again in a heartbeat (and have, many times). it's my son's favorite restaurant when he isn't on a diet. my husband is never happy that the mashed potatoes (his favorite food) are thin and watery and just not real. the only reason we can't give a 5-star. sorry, essenhaus. you need to fix this one thing.
