The food is good and the price is reasonable. They are open for Sunday brunch from 10AM to 2PM. They did raise prices to $16.95 per person but for what it is still isn't bad since it includes juice or coffee. They have the usuall breakfast foods on the buffet plus a cook to order omelet station, crepe station, and desert bar. I like the prime rib, fried chicken and they have the best cooked carrots. They also have oysters on the half shell from time to time, but I know those aren't for everyone. It is also a great place to go with a large family or group as long as you make reservations.

After reading the reviews I decided to take a party of 8 here for the Sunday brunch. We made reservations and it was full of people. I didn't know what to expect beings it was a buffet but we all walked away very pleased. Everyone in our group has a little different taste and we all liked everyone we tried. The carrots and green beans ranked table wide to be the best anyone has ever had. Everything was cooked as it should and didn't taste like your typical buffet fare. The dessert table is vast and no expense was spared. The cinnamon rolls are a must have. The service was good and the atmosphere was very relaxing and scenic. This place is a bit off the beaten path and well worth the trip. We plan on coming back

This is a Lafayette area favorite for Sunday Brunch that travelers shouldn't miss because this place can handle large crowds easily, with super sized banquet hall tables that make it easy to just "drop in" with LARGE families and their food is top notch, and all in a classy atmosphere. Starting with a very wide varietety of salads, extremely fresh fruits, variety of hot breakfast options, as well as great entrees, vegetables, and hand carved meats (included excellent prime rib on our visit). And the dessert options are very nice and go on and on too.
To get to it you need to get off I-65 at exit 178 (state road 43) head south/west (towards Purdue) but shortly ahead turn left on Burnett Road. Then just watch on you right for the "rearing horse" at the entrance to the banquet center on your right (entrance drops down in the wooded setting).

It's alright if you want to go somewhere for weekend brunch but the food is simply average. The staff is very nice, however.
