Great, your choice of the cafe side, restaurant side, or bar. Restaurant side has a salad bar. You can't beat the price or the service. Good fried chicken, good bacon cheeseburger and fries. Could have given a full 5 stars, but the eggs on the...More

The staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was average to below average. Ordered Steak and Hashbrowns, steak was plain and overcooked. Hashbrowns tasted frozen. Pies were not great as well. Again the staff was exceptional.

Tired and hungry, we stopped here for lunch. What a treat. The salad bar was full of very fresh salad fixings as well as many prepared salads your grandmother would’ve proudly served. The salad bar also had fruits and sweet salads along with a baked...More

We went on a Sunday at noon. The place was packed, but the service was great, the food was fantastic and we were out in no time. This is truly the best bargain around. Delicious food for VERY reasonable prices.
