For a small town, the food was absolutely delicious. There is a buffet each night of the week and we went on Thursday and it was German night. Everything you could imagine was on the menu! Good warm heartfelt food! Definitely going back for more!

We've eaten Thanksgiving dinner here two years in a row, and plan to continue to do so in the future. The food is very good with a fantastic variety to meet every family member's needs. The price is fair for what you receive. The service is great and people are friendly. We are appreciative for a place like this being... More

This restaurant has a buffet as well as a menu to order from. We stopped in for a late lunch and had a pretty decent meal. The one exception to the "decent" meal was their salad bar. There were many selections of "green" as well as pasta type salads and the greens were excellent! They offer organic options as well!y... More

This is our go-to eating spot in Melrose! Service is good. The buffet is quick or you can order off the menu.

This is a really good sized restaurant and offer a very large buffet selection. One nice thing about it was that each night there is a little different theme to the buffet. We were there on a Sunday and the selection was quite varied in all departments from salads to desserts. The food itself is ok, the ribs were a... More

Like all buffets, some good items and some not so good. The staff is very friendly and helpful. For the price we paid you can not get any better. Seniors get a good price.

I've been in this area several times and didn't know this was here, the billboard on the highway did its job. I had the buffet which offered a nice selection and some of the food is organic. There was also a nice selection of desserts, the apple cobbler was very good and I'm fairly sure it was homemade. Not a... More

Went here on Thursday for German night. It was good but some things had been on the buffet for to long. It was late when we arrived and I'm sure it would have been great when everything was fresh. Very good salad bar.

This place wasn't busy for a Friday morning, but it was an excellent breakfast. Very clean, wonderful little Bakery retail area, not a very old place. I will definitely come back and try the buffet.

Thank Mark L
