There is no line or wait to get into this buffet. Most food items were a little on the dry side, partly because they sit out for a long time due to not very many customers The ice cream from the machine is very good, but the toppings are awkward to get without making a mess. There was a carving... More

We have been coming here for several years and and new management came in and made changes and we just cannot support coming here again until it improves. The most recent change this month was to discontinue the 2-1 buffet for seniors and the 2-1 buffet for veterans. The new pricing is $ 4.99 Monday through Thursday for lunch which... More

I gave it this rating but it's nothing really special. Foods were basic buffet fare. Salad bar was fairly decent. Fresh fruits decent as well but all the containers are very small, so they either get little business or have to refill constantly. Not sure which. The choices were salsbury steak...glorified mini meatloaves, fried chicken, chicken wings, hamburger stuffed peppers... More

The temperature of the lunch meat and cheese at the Sunday brunch buffet worried me since the cheese had that left out too long look and was warm enough it stuck together. The food is greasy and either over salted or not... More

Food selections were poor and looked old. Fruit and salad were the best part of the buffet and we don't recommend stopping.

Each meal was excellent with great service. The place is clean, plenty of choices, excellent quality food and great prices. We enjoyed several meals at this buffet and would highly recommend this restaurant to others. Each of the dining establishments served excellent products with great prices. Some of the best Cordon bleu I have ever eaten.

Buffet was very tasty. Steaks and Shrimp on Friday night made this a great meal. Everything was good!
