Never left without being completely full. The lunch buffet is out of this world. I have never eaten fish that I could eat without tarter sauce....but they have it. Very reasonably priced

Many different BBQ options along with chicken and pork...many choices of sauces. The salad bar is always fresh and delicious and the desert bar is...amazingly delicious. There's also À la cart menu offerings sandwiches, chicken and buffer take out. The staff is always friendly and tables kept clean.

This is a true gem in the Tell City, area. I have to say that the BBQ buffet and all of the items on it is outstanding. The salad bar is great but the desert bar is on a whole other level of yummy! Give this place a try and you won't be disappointed!

Pretty decent food! Clean enough! Meats are very good, especially the beef that is in an Au jus. I think that the deep fried fish is the most delicious fish I've ever tasted----- ( if it freshly cooked ). The dressing is very good, but the rest of the vegetables on the bar leave a lot to be desired. The... More

If you are looking for some "home cooking" they have a great selection. I didn't know how hungry I was before going here. Had to skip breakfast and go straight to work then we all went here and I had a hard time not eating too much. Really enjoyed their stuffing and casserole too. Ate that instead of dessert. Has...
