The one in Holiday Mall 207 W Superior St. Buffet style, plus soup, sandwiches. They 'weigh' your salads/buffet food. Very good, reasonable. Seating inside, or across the hall in another room. I would go back

Met here with a colleague for breakfast. The food was terrific and the ambiance nice. The service was a bit slow, but friendly. Overall, a good experience, and I would go back.

My husband and I had an excellent meal tonight! The staff treated us like we were old friends. And on Wednesdays they have 1/2 price wine and live music. The gentleman that played the guitar music was amazing!

We got the takeout picnic package as part of our hotel deal. The value was well worth it and we enjoyed a nice salad, sandwich, drink, and homemade delicious cookie at a wayside rest on the way home. We couldn't even finish both sandwiches so...More
