Average food, nothing special. Reasonable price. Food does need some seasoning, especially salt

Ate there plenty of times. The selection doesn't change much. Better to eat there for lunch. Cheaper to go for lunch on the weekdays. Save money that way.

What can I say, this is the best buffet food around, and you can't beat the price! Most buffet food is really horrible, but this place has the taste of good home cooking. I Like to sample a little of everything, and don't worry, there's enough to choose from for us gluten sensitive people. It does get really crowded, so it's best to go during the week to avoid waiting for a long time. Even though there is a lot of seating, the food is too good to have just one go around. And of course, there's the great gift shop downstairs....

Breakfast is my favorite love the spinach & bacon egg Benedict & the baked French toast. Too many good things to mention them all

Awesome breakfast buffet at a great price. Get there early as the lines are very long. Dinner not as good and a little pricey but free on your birthday.

We always stop here for a meal if we're in the area. This is our favorite buffet. This visit didn't disappoint. The food was just as delicious as usual. This time they had smoked beef brisket on the menu and it was superb! It was some of the best I've had anywhere. Stop in and try it out for some good home cooking.
It does get really busy at usual meal times so I always go a little early or a little later than usual to avoid the big lines.
